ARCCO provides customized Planned Maintenance (PM) programs. Like any other equipment, your generator power system needs periodic maintenance to keep it in top condition and ready to operate when the lights go out. The middle of a power failure is not the time to find out your system has problems.
A consistent planned maintenance schedule will uncover, diagnose, and correct minor problems before they become costly. While planned maintenance is not a problem-free guarantee, it is your best investment in the safe and reliable long term operation of your system.
ARCCO offers three levels of planned maintenance plans to meet your budget, testing, and inspection requirements. We service any make, brand and model generator and switch gear.
LEVEL 1 PM
- The Level 1 PM is the foundation for our Planned Maintenance Program.
- Though considered to be an Inspection; this level of maintenance is where we ascertain the readiness
Of the Emergency Power Supply System and identify problems or potential failures.
- This is accomplished by inspecting and testing the subsystems of the EPSS utilizing our Planned Maintenance Check List also referred to as our Field Service Report.
- In addition to our check list the system is also inspected and tested in accordance with specific
LEVEL 2 PM
- The Level 2 PM is the next higher level of Planned Maintenance.
- This level of preventive maintenance begins with the accomplishment of Level 1 PM actions.
(1) Collecting an Engine Oil / Fuel Sample and sending it to the Lab for analysis.
(2) Draining the existing oil from the unit and refilling it with new oil.
(3) Removing the existing oil filters and replacing them with new filters.
(4) Removing the existing fuel filters and replacing them with new filters.
(5) Removing the existing coolant filters and replacing them with new filters.
As per our practice air filters replacement are considered extra actions and are
identified as needed during the Level 1 PM.
LEVEL 3 PM
- The Level 3 PM addresses the common high failure items associated with the starting and cooling
systems it is recommended to be performed every 3 years.
- It's intent is to prevent potential failure of the EPSS through predicable preventive maintenance actions.
- The Level 3 PM is accomplished in conjunction with a level 2 preventive maintenance.
- The Level 3 PM consists of the following actions:
(1) Draining, flushing and refilling the cooling system with new coolant.
(2) Replacing the water temperature regulators.
(3) Replacing the radiator cap.
(4) Pressure washing the radiator outer core.
(5) Replacing all rubber hoses in the cooling system to include the upper and lower radiator
hoses, water pump by-pass hoses, vent hoses, jacket water heater hoses, etc.
(6) Draining, flushing and refilling the cooling system with new coolant.
(7) Replacing all fan/alternator drive belts.
(8) Replacing the rubber fuel supply and return hoses.
(9) Replacing the engine starting batteries if needed.
(10) Replacing the battery terminal connectors if needed.
(11) Checking and adjusting the engine overhead.
