We Offer Generator Lifespn Assessment

To ensure your generator is dependable and will endure the test of time, Reactive Generators offers generator lifespan assessments. This comprehensive evaluation will ensure you can mitigate any potential issues before they arise and or contribute to asset upgrade decisions. 

What is a Generator Lifespan Assessment?

Generators are an integral component of many businesses’ power systems, particularly those involved in the industrial sector. These machines are also utilised on a range of residential and commercial properties in emergencies, events, or when access to the main supply is not possible. However, living in a volatile environment means it is often difficult to predict when a generator will be needed, or how long it will be used for.

When these interruptions occur, dependable and efficient access to your generator is essential. Continually monitoring and evaluating your generator will limit the risk of failure or unplanned downtime. Calculating the machine’s lifespan by testing elements such as stators, rotors, terminals, crank deflection and bores with multifunction insulation equipment, infrared imagery, laser shaft alignment and borescopes, Reactive Generators can accurately forecast component replacements or shutdown maintenance periods. This proactive approach will ensure your generator is operating at maximal capacity when it is needed.

How is the Generator Assessment Completed?

Breakdowns, unexpected repairs or inefficient operation of a generator can create unnecessary costs, delays and significant interruptions. Conducting a generator lifespan assessment, Reactive Generators can accurately predict when components are due for replacement, schedule any relevant shutdown maintenance periods and ensure the machine is fit for use at any given time or replacement.  

The Generator Lifespan Assessment considers control system complexity, aged component availability, environmental demand and changes as well as operational, tolerance and inspection data, such as infrared imagery and borescope evidence.

Why is it important to know the lifespan of my generator?

Understanding the expected lifespan of your generator allows for proper maintenance and scheduled repairs. This testing ensures that your machine will run at an optimal standard of quality for the forecast period, limiting the potential of breakdowns and power interruptions. 

How is the generator lifespan measured?

Unlike many other machines, a generator’s lifespan is generally measured in hours and not years. This measurement is because the lifetime of a generator depends mainly on the hours of operation, rather than the age of the unit but age and part availability should also be a consideration in the overall operational forecast.

How can I extend the lifespan of my generator?

Scheduled and preventative maintenance plans are a must for anyone seeking to prolong the expected lifespan of their generator. After conducting a generator lifespan assessment, Reactive Generators can create a personalised maintenance and repairs plan, to ensure the unit is effectively monitored and serviced when needed.
