How do you maintain Emergency Battery?
I should check and fill in some distilled water, or electrolyzed solution(电解液) if necessary, erase the oxide and test the gravity of the specification periodically. The record shall be made after work is done.
Describe the procedure for starting an emergency generator.
1.To check the lube oil level in the crankcase and fuel oil level in the tank;
2.To see whether there is any leakage;
3.To check the air pressure if the generator is the air-started model; and to check the battery voltage to see whether it is normal if the generator is the battery-started model;
4.Also to make sure there are no obstacles around the machine.
What chemicals did you use to treat the boiler water? When you test alkalinity and acidity of water in boiler by PH test paper?The result shows the boiler water is in acidity. Please describe what the possible cause is.
I have ever used the following brand chemicals: Unitor, Drew and so on.
We should keep the boil water’s PH scale between 10.5 and 11.5.
If the water become of acidity (Ph scale is below 10), it is may be caused by following reasons:
The water has not been given enough blow-down, or has not been filled enough alkalinity chemicals.
