Loftin University is pleased to announce its 2015 Training Schedule. We will be offering 2 new classes this year: Scania T4F Advanced Troubleshooting and Generator 202.
Loftin University is a 1st class learning center where technicians of all skill levels can learn about the Kohler Power Systems products. We teach in both a classroom and a practical lab, with a broad cross section of equipment that fully encompasses the technology seen in the field and offered by KOHLER.
Make Sure Your Generator System is Prepared When You Need It
Whatever the industry, the key to having back-up power available and operating reliably during outages, is a planned maintenance program. While most standby generators incorporate an automatic set exerciser to start and run the generators for 30-minutes, such as once a week, only a planned maintenance program undertaken regularly will ensure reliability of the complete system.
Contact Loftin Equipment Co. to hear more about our planned maintenance programs.
Recommended Lubrication Oils for Diesel Generator Set Systems
This Information Sheet discusses the recommended lubrication oils for diesels used in generator set systems and why it is important to use the correct oil as specified by the engine manufacturer with the introduction of new emission technology.
Maintenance of a generator set’s starter battery is critical to ensuring sufficient ampere capacity to start the engine. As a precaution generator users routinely change out the batteries every 2 years.
