As an appointed Perkins distributor BU Power Systems is not only responsible for the sales but also for the after-sales service of Perkins diesel and gas engines. Our comprehensive after-sales service ensures professional engine support in the fields of industry, agriculture and forestry, construction, emergency power and energy generation as well as for engines in combined heat and power plants. The BU service meets the highest Perkins service standard. Our fully-equipped service vans ensure prompt on-site assistance but of course it is also possible to perform the service in our workshop.
As specialists for Perkins engines our service team helps at any time quickly and competently. This time our technicians serviced a Geotec Rotomax XL GT drilling rig, equipped with a Perkins 1104C-44TA, with a smoke issue. The drilling rig was built in 2007 and had 6,500 operating hours. The engine was checked thoroughly in our workshop and a worn-out turbocharger as well as unproperly working injectors have been detected. The core engine was in a good condition with very good and equal compression on cylinders.
After our service technicians renewed the turbocharger and the injectors with genuine Perkins spare parts a minor maintenance was performed. After a final checkup and test run the engine now runs perfectly and is back in service again.
