Can You Depend on a Remanufactured Engine for Backup Power?
Can you depend on a remanufactured engine to deliver reliable backup power? Generators are expensive investments, but even top-of-the-line generators will wear out over time. When engines fail and repair isn’t an option, remanufactured engines and parts can deliver a cost-effective, efficient, and reliable solution.
The Advantage of Remanufactured Engines
Next to cost savings, time is the most important advantage offered by a remanufactured engine. In most cases, installing a remanufactured diesel engine takes roughly half the time it takes to perform a complete engine overhaul.
Enhanced reliability is another key advantage. That is because the remanufactured engine is built to perform beyond the previous engine’s specifications. As a result, you can expect less downtime, fewer repairs, and improved performance. This translates to lower operating costs and improved system longevity.
As with new engines, remanufactured engines typically come with a solid warranty on parts and labor. This warranty period varies from company to company; however, it is not uncommon to have one year, two year, or even longer warranties.
The Importance of OEM Parts & Certified Technicians
When purchasing a remanufactured diesel generator engine, it is imperative to confirm that quality components were used. This helps protect you against sudden failures caused by substandard replacement components. This shields your generator from damage and helps ensure that any warranties remain valid should a component failure cause damage to the engine or other generator systems.
While diesel engine operation basics are the same from manufacturer to manufacturer, make sure an OEM certified diesel engine technician performed the work. These technicians will have a thorough knowledge of design details and manufacturing variances inherent to the engine.
