Did you know that…

… the exhaust tem­per­a­ture of a Perkins® 854 engine is around 700° Cel­sius?

That is the tem­per­a­ture at which lava erupts from a vol­cano.

This is just one exam­ple that shows what your Perkins engine can do and how much stress it puts on its com­po­nents. Reg­u­lar main­te­nance is nec­es­sary to ensure this spe­cial per­for­mance of your engine and to ensure that your engine will last as long as pos­si­ble.

Pro­fes­sion­al main­te­nance for best engine per­for­mance

Main­tain­ing your Perkins engine is the key to its opti­mum per­for­mance. Slight changes in per­for­mance can eas­i­ly go un-noticed, often a drop of 20 per­cent in per­for­mance can hap­pen before the oper­a­tor notices. Miss­ing ser­vice inter­vals can lead to reduc­tion in per­for­mance, let alone the worst case of a vital part fail­ing.

Impor­tant: appro­pri­ate ser­vice inter­vals

The per­for­mance checks required will vary by engine type and oper­at­ing con­di­tions, so it is wise to ensure the checks and fre­quen­cy are right for your engine. The reg­u­lar checks that you need to car­ry out fall into dai­ly and week­ly cat­e­gories, along with reg­u­lar ser­vic­ing and spec­i­fied inter­vals. They all have the same aim of ensur­ing that your engine runs as long as pos­si­ble at the max­i­mum effi­cien­cy. No two sched­ules are exact­ly the same, so you should always check the sched­ule for your par­tic­u­lar engine.

It is also worth not­ing that the checks either relate to the cal­en­dar time or the hours your engine has been run­ning. Checks should take place far more often on an engine in almost con­stant use than for one used occa­sion­al­ly. So, for exam­ple, chang­ing the engine coolant is rec­om­mend­ed every two years – but it will need atten­tion soon­er if your engine runs for 3,000 hours, which is the equiv­a­lent of run­ning 24/7 for just over four months.

The BU Ser­vice will help you deter­mine the opti­mum ser­vice inter­vals for your Perkins engine to ensure an ide­al engine per­for­mance and that your busi­ness process­es run smooth­ly. Use the BU Main­te­nance Ser­vice to keep your costs as low as pos­si­ble in the long term, pre­vent machine break­downs and avoid major repairs.

In addi­tion to stan­dard main­te­nance, we are spe­cial­ists for extra­or­di­nary main­te­nance, par­tial or com­plete over­hauls of all engine repairs. Every ser­vice is agreed in advance, planned in detail, car­ried out on site or in our work­shops using all repair and diag­nos­tic equip­ment, thus min­i­miz­ing down­times.

More­over, we offer solu­tions that extend the life of your engine through spe­cial prod­ucts: ser­vice pack­ages for diesel par­tic­u­late fil­ters, Perkins Extend­ed Life Coolant, Perkins Diesel Engine Oil, main­te­nance con­tracts with dif­fer­ent terms and ser­vice inter­vals, main­te­nance kits for your engine (also indi­vid­u­al­ly cus­tomised), extend­ed war­ran­ty.

 Always use Perkins gen­uine fil­ters

Have you thought about check­ing the fil­ters in your Perkins engine this year and replac­ing them if nec­es­sary?

Oil fil­ters

State-of-the-art tech­nol­o­gy, the use of the high­est qual­i­ty mate­ri­als, non-return and pres­sure relief valves, seal­ing rings, adhe­sives and fil­ter media guar­an­tee an opti­mum oil flow and pro­tect your engine against low oil in every oper­at­ing appli­ca­tion and thus pre­vent wear or engine dam­age.

Fuel fil­ters

Only the high­est qual­i­ty mate­ri­als are used in the pro­duc­tion of Perkins gen­uine fuel fil­ters and thus pro­tect, for exam­ple, the high-pres­sure injec­tion sys­tem from dam­age caused by dirt par­ti­cles in com-mon-rail fuel sys­tems.

Air fil­ters

A gen­uine Perkins air fil­ter stops 99,99% of par­ti­cles, pre­vent­ing dam­age to valves, rings and tur­bocharg­ers while also max­imis­ing the free air­flow.

New: Perkins® Ecoplus-Fil­ters

Perkins has extend­ed its Perkins® Ecoplus range of fil­ters with the addi­tion of a new­ly designed oil fil­ter.

The Perkins® Ecoplus oil fil­ter has been fit­ted on the new EU Stage V Perkins® Syn­cro 3.6 and 2.8 litre engines. Pre­vi­ous­ly util­is­ing a spin-on oil fil­ter across its engine range, Perkins has tak­en the oppor­tu­ni­ty to upgrade the fil­ter as part of the design work under­tak­en on the new engine range. As with all Perkins Ecoplus fil­ters, the oil fil­ter now includes a replace­able ele­ment that fits inside the fil­ter hous­ing on the machine. This reduces waste as there is no met­al can­is­ter to dis­pose of, com­pared to the typ­i­cal spin-on fil­ter.

 New Perkins® Ecoplus oil fil­ters enable a quick and clean change

An imme­di­ate ben­e­fit for cus­tomers is the clean change that’s now pos­si­ble, thanks to a mod­i­fi­ca­tion to the angle of the fil­ter. The new fil­ter is upright which makes it eas­i­er to access and as soon as the cap is opened the oil auto­mat­i­cal­ly drains back into the block.

As your exclu­sive Perkins dis­trib­u­tor, BU Pow­er Sys­tems offers orig­i­nal qual­i­ty at rea­son­able prices. If you have any ques­tions, please con­tact us. Please also note our cur­rent spe­cial offer for Perkins fil­ters.
