Ser­vice insights – Repair of a Perkins 1104C-44TA engine

By 13. January 2022 No Comments

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.
