The Benefits Of Maintaining Your Generator
It is extremely important to maintain your generator. By providing your generator with the TLC it deserves you could potentially be saving your business a lot of money. Here at JS Power, we provide world class generators, repairs and maintenance services to ensure your generator runs safely and efficiently.
Thinking of investing in generator maintenance? Here are just a few benefits:
By completing frequent health checks, you can depend on your generator when you need it. If you keep on top of your generator maintenance, you can rely on your generator to run smoothly so there’s no need to waste time worrying or dealing with the consequences if it decides to cut out.
Prevent fuel problems
Without proper maintenance generators become more susceptible to fuel problems such as algae on the fuel system, clogged fuel injectors and dead batteries. These types of problems can even ruin your generators if left untreated for too long. Regular maintenance will eliminate this problem entirely.
Saves you money
Although ignoring generator maintenance may seem like the cheaper option for now, it most certainly isn’t in the long run. Without any real care for your generator you will be more inclined to have further problems down the line, and in some cases, you may even have to replace your whole generator unit, both of which come with a costly price.
Keeps your generator running for a longer period
A generator can be a very large expense and one you don’t tend to make very often. By ensuring your generator is properly maintained, the lifespan of your generator will certainly increase, and it will run much smoother and longer than if you ignored maintenance tasks.
These are just a few reasons as to why generator maintenance is vital. Here at JS Power, we offer a variety of different services to help with your generator issues. Whether it’s fuel polishing which provides a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to disposing and replacing of dirty fuel or servicing and repair where we work hard to maximise the lifespan and efficiency of your generator, we’re more than happy to help you and your generator needs.

Fuel polishing is the technical cleaning process used to remove or filter microbial contamination from oil and hydrocarbon fuel in storage.
Fuel polishing systems are vital for diesel-powered emergency systems. They eliminate a critical point of failure; fuel contamination. Modern engines and fuel systems need clean fuel to run reliably, if left untreated diesel is under constant attack from water, microbial growth and solid particulates, even after cleaning.
We can extend the life of your diesel, minimise waste and reduce your fuel spend with specialist generator fuel polishing services here at JS Power.
Could I rely on filtration?
Relying on filtration has 2 drawbacks. Without treating its causes, contamination continually attacks your filters. Blocked filters will deprive your generators of fuel and risk a critical power failure. Filters also need replacing. The more contaminants they have to remove, the more labour taken to replace them as well as maintenance costs.
How does the fuel become contaminated?
Water is the enemy of clean fuel, as it is a contaminant itself. Emulsified & free water encourages microbial growth which is the diesel bug. Water then accelerates contamination from solids like rust. Without proper maintenance diesel will degrade, it is inevitable.
Whether you need one-off fuel polishing or regular support, we’ll provide you with a professional & competitively priced service that will make a real measurable difference.
We can visit your premises at a time that suits you with our experience fuel polishing team. We will work around your business to minimise downtime and disruption, thoroughly analysing the quality of your diesel before and after polishing.

Load bank Testing
We understand the catastrophic risks that come with a dysfunctional generator, at JS Power we provide an essential preventative measure as one of our services, this is to avoid any failing generators as best as possible.
A generator load bank test involves an examination and assessment. It verifies that all primary components of the generator set are in proper working condition under loaded conditions. Annual load testing is vital to ensure your diesel standby generator is fit for purpose, and some insurance companies demand it as part of their policies.
When a diesel generator is not used frequently or only run on light loads, it can be prone to experiencing unburned fuel and soot build-up in the exhaust system. During a load bank test, the generator can run at full power and full temperature.
A load bank test ensures that your generator will run properly when it’s needed so that you can fully depend on it during an emergency. The key is to test your generator at its full kilowatt (kW) output rating.
There are multiple reasons your generator should undergo a load bank test, these include:
- Verifies the generators capability.
- Problems discovered early therefore prevents future issues.
- Helps to avoid wet-stacking and cleans out carbon deposits.
- Verifies the engine cooling systems will perform under load.
- Provides assurance that the generator will work efficiently.
You can have confidence that your generator will able to bear the load power requirements and maintain a decent service life when you get it load bank tested by JS Power. We tailor the load bank testing process to match your generator, and our highly experienced engineers will thoroughly analyse equipment performance over different loads, monitoring and gathering data constantly for 2-4 hours. We also test the overload capacity putting your machine through its paces. Thermal images are also taken.
We even provide a full health check report, detailing the condition of your generator and any maintenance issues that need to be addressed. For more information on Load bank testing, or any of our other services then browse the rest of our website or give us a call on 0800 294 1777.

There are various ways in which you can ensure your generator is looked after. Loadbank testing is one of them and is something we offer here at JS power.

JS Power provides a wide variety of services to help you maintain your generator, but here are a few tips for you to take into account when considering maintenance:
Engine running tests
Engine parts can face extreme pressure whilst the generator is running, by running a few tests it will ensure your generator will start promptly without any hitches, whilst keeping the engine lubricated.
Batteries must be well maintained and kept fully charged. Inspection and testing is extremely important to avoid any start problems.
Ensure your fuel is not degrading and is not becoming contaminated, this can pose a risk to power in critical applications and is something that should be maintained to prolong the life of your generator.
The level of coolant must be constantly checked, similarly with engine oil. The exterior of the coolant must also be checked to prevent any grime or dirt.
It is important to monitor the exhaust system, fuel system, and the engine. Any visible leaks must also be fixed to prevent any hazards.
