Generator lubricating oil plays a protective role on the unit, if the quality of lubricating oil is not high, it will affect the life of the generator set, choose a good oil, can play a good maintenance role on the generator set, but sometimes because of the wrong operation and let the oil with water.How to check the moisture in the oil? 


First of all, you can heat the oil in a test tube to 110 to 120 degrees Celsius, such as oil "crackle" sound, indicating that there is water in the oil. If there is water in the oil, you can use indirect heating oil to 110 to 120 degrees Celsius, when the oil bubbles disappear, cooling to room temperature, the water will be removed. 


If the oil has mild emulsion, can through the following way to deal with: the same brand of emulsified oil together, attend the weight of the oil weight of 1% to 3% of phenol (phenol) as emulsifier, stop stirring and heating to 50 to 80 degrees Celsius, precipitation let stand for 4 hours or longer time, after waiting for oil and water layers, removal of the lower water, just can use. 


If thickening mechanism for oil emulsion, it can be used dry way to deal with: the emulsified thickened oil mechanism in the container with clean serpentine heating tube, with saturated steam through coil to stop heating, the oil temperature rise to 110 to 120 degrees c, at the same time to its container into the clean air tight stop stirring, make oil evaporation until milky white, has long city transparent color, and then cooled to room temperature, can be used.
