Volvo Excavator Pump It Up

The purpose of regular maintenance of the excavator is to reduce the failure of the machine and extend the service life of the machine; Reduced machine downtime; Increase productivity and reduce job costs. By managing fuel, lubricants, water and air, failures can be reduced by 70%. In fact, about 70% of failures are due to poor management. Below I will introduce you to some of the most practical excavator maintenance methods.

  1. Fuel management. Different grades of diesel should be selected according to different ambient temperatures; Diesel fuel should not be mixed with impurities, dirt and water, otherwise the fuel pump will wear out prematurely; The high content of paraffin and sulfur in inferior fuel oil will cause damage to the engine; After the daily operation, the fuel tank should be filled with fuel to prevent water droplets on the inner wall of the fuel tank; Open the water discharge valve at the bottom of the fuel tank to drain water before daily operation; After the engine runs out of fuel or the filter element is replaced, the air in the road must be drained. The minimum ambient temperature is 0°C, -10°C, -20°C, -30°C diesel grades 0#, -10#, -20#, -35#.

  2. Management of other oils. Other oils include engine oil, hydraulic oil, gear oil, etc.; Different grades and different grades of oil cannot be mixed; Different varieties of excavator oil add different chemical or physical additives in the production process; To ensure that the oil is clean, to prevent debris (water, dust, particles, etc.) from mixing; The oil number is selected according to the ambient temperature and application. If the ambient temperature is high, the oil with high viscosity should be selected, and the oil with low viscosity should be selected when the ambient temperature is low; The viscosity of the gear oil is relatively large to accommodate the larger transmission load, and the viscosity of the hydraulic oil is relatively small to reduce the resistance of liquid flow.

  3. Lubricating grease management. The use of lubricating oil (butter) reduces wear on moving surfaces and prevents noise. When storing grease, it should not be mixed with dust, sand, water and other impurities; It is recommended to use lithium-based grease G2-L1, which has good anti-wear performance and is suitable for heavy-duty working conditions; When filling, try to squeeze out all the old oil and wipe it clean to prevent the sand from adhering.

  4. Maintenance of filter element. The filter element plays the role of filtering impurities in the oil or gas circuit to prevent them from invading the system and causing failure; All kinds of filter elements should be replaced regularly in accordance with the requirements of the (operation and maintenance manual); When replacing the filter element, check whether there is metal attached to the old filter element, and diagnose and take improvement measures in time if metal particles are found; Use a pure filter element that meets the machine's specifications. The filtration capacity of the shoddy filter element is poor, and the surface of the filter layer and the quality of the material do not meet the requirements, which will seriously affect the normal use of the machine.
