Maintenance on a Guascor gas engine type FGLD-240
Today we show you the spare parts that «RS Motor» uses for performing a maintenance type R1 on a Guascor gas engine type FGLD-240.

R1 maintenance needs to be performed each 8.400 running hours in case of biogas engines. In this case, our customer has the engine in a Waste Water Treatment Plant.

The main steps of this maintenance type R1 are the following ones:

  1. Renew main oil filters.
  2. Renew air filters.
  3. Renew spark plugs and ignition cables. This time we choose Denso spark plugs and ignition cables from our “Partner” Motortech.
  4. Refurbishment of the 8x cylinder heads. After that, our team should check the valve lag.
  5. Cleaning of pistons and cylinder liners.
  6. Renew of thermostats.
  7. Turbocharger standard maintenance.
  8. Renew bearings of throttle valve.
  9. Refurbishment of water pump and oil pump.
  10. General checking and other important inspections.
  11. Final commissioning.

In order to achieve the best quality as possible, «RS Motor» supplies and install only Genuine and/or OEM Guascor spare parts.

This is the same for the other brands of engines we usually carry out Service. «RS Motor» is synonym of accuracy and quality thanks to the purchasing DEUTZ/MWM, Jenbacher and Guascor genuine and OEM spare parts.

That is our secret, as well as the years of background we have gotten, working hard from the beginning.

We hope you enjoy! If you need some original spare part, please, contact with «RS Motor». Our team will help to you, for sure!

Catalysts

Along this article, we want to talk about one of the main enviromental challenges that CHP plants are facing nowadays.

The reduction of pollutants to the atmosphere, is a key aspect within the use of Natural Gas or Biogas Reciprocating Engines to produce Heat and Power.

Thoughout the last years the legislation in terms of Hazard emissions to the atmosphere all over the world has become more restrictive with lower limit values, therefore sometimes is compulsory find Solutions to cut down the different values under the legal limits.

In many cases, the solution that allows be inside the legal emission values is using a catalyst element.

The most common catalyst, are the next:

SELECTIVE CATALYTIC REDUCTION – SCR 

Nitrogen Oxides are commonly the main headache about the atmospheric contamination when we talk about the emissions control of gas engines.

SCR catalyst (selective catalytic reduction), are used to cut down the NOx levels in the exhaust gases. The exhaust gases are mixed with a metered amount of Ad-Blue, afterwards the pollutant gases go throuhgh a Surface of a ceramic honeycomb, coated with noble metals where the NOx are reduced by hydrolysis.

The hydrolysis breaks down the urea, that reacts with the Nitrogen Oxides, turning them into Nitrogen and H2O. To control the levels of NOx a sensor is assembled, thanks to this sensor the Ad-Blue metering is calculated.

The correct Ad-Blue (urea) metering beside their distribution over the catalyst is the key to achive correct pollutant levels.

OXIDATION CATALYST

This kind of catalyst are used to reduce the values of Carbon Monoxide (CO) and un-burnt hydrocarbons, specially formaldehyde.

In the oxidation catalysts, the exhaust gases go through a oxidation element honeycomb, coated with noble metals where the catalytic oxidation is developed to create Hydrogen and Carbon Dioxide, cutting down the Hazard elements in the exhaust gases.

CONCLUSION

With the aim of ensure the engines are running within the legal pollutant limits, producing heat and power on a efficient way, «RS MOTOR» has the ability to carry out catalyst projects for the correct exhaust gas treatmet.

Below you will see some images from a recent instalation of a Oxidation Catalyst carried out by «RS MOTOR».
