Electric Power Preventative Maintenance

Altorfer Cat is happy to provide several different Preventive Maintenance Agreements for your prime and backup generators. Preventive Maintenance Agreements are tailored to fit your specific business needs and can help you manage the operating costs of Cat® and non-Cat equipment.

Load Bank Testing Preventative Maintenance Agreement

Load bank testing is the best way to measure the performance of your generator set. It can reveal problems in your generator set so they can be corrected before your system is called on in a critical emergency. Altorfer’s generator technicians can test your power system under simulated operating conditions to ensure that it will perform when needed.

Reasons to use a Load Bank:

  • Measure the performance of your generator set
  • Reveal problems in your system
  • Develop a load testing schedule that is appropriate for your generator set

Diesel Fuel Management

Diesel fuel today is unstable by nature. Fuel is constantly degrading from the time it is refined until it is burned. Contamination from transportation and storage from the refinery to the user along with moisture, oxidation, microbial growth and time all enhance the degradation process. Degradation appears in the form of a black slime, which drops to the bottom of the fuel tank. In time, the slime builds up and is pulled into the fuel filter, resulting in engine response problems.

Altorfer Power offers a maintenance program to address all of your fuel system needs such as:

  • Fuel Analysis
  • Fuel Cleaning
  • Fuel Tank Replacement
  • Fuel Conditioning
  • Fuel Tank Cleaning

Thermal Imaging

Reduce the risk of unexpected downtime and expensive emergency repair costs. When current flows through any electrical circuit, heat is generated as a by-product of resistance. With time and use, all electrical components and contact surfaces deteriorate – causing increased resistance and heat. A Thermal Imaging maintenance program will detect and record this heat. Thermal images taken will convert this heat energy to a visible image. The images are then analyzed for areas of concern or future problems.

Thermal imaging can be performed on:

  • Wiring and Cable Connections
  • Automatic Transfer Switches
  • Circuit Breakers
  • Transformers
  • Motors

Megohmmeter Testing

With time and use, the insulation on electrical wiring, generator leads, and internal generator components will deteriorate. Temperature, humidity, dust, and oil will also have a negative effect on the insulation integrity. A megohmmeter test will help identify insulation problems before a serious expensive failure occurs. With a portable handheld tool, readings are taken and values are displayed for each individual circuit. Megohmmeter testing can be applied to most simple circuit electrical equipment and devices including:

  • Wiring
  • Motors
  • Switches
  • Circuit Breakers
  • Transformers
