performed on a single generator set. The procedures must be performed on each of the generator sets that
make up a power plant.
2-2.4.3 Routine Inspections. Use the following information to help identify potential problems before
and during checks and Services.
Dry cleaning solvent used to clean parts is potentially dangerous to
personnel and property. Clean parts in a well-ventilated area. Avoid
inhalation of solvent fumes. Wear goggles and rubber gloves to protect eyes
and skin. Wash exposed skin thoroughly. Do not smoke or use near open
flame or excessive heat. Failure to observe this warning could cause severe
personal injury or death.
Keep cleaning solvents, gasoline, and lubricants away from rubber or soft
plastic parts. They will deteriorate material.
Keep it clean. Dirt, grease, and oil get in the way and may cover up a serious problem. Use
dry cleaning solvent to clean metal surfaces.
Use soap and water to clean rubber or plastic parts and material.
Check all bolts, nuts, and screws to make sure they are not loose, missing, bent, or broken. Do
not try to check them all with a tool, but look for chipped paint, bare metal, or rust around bolt
heads. If you find one loose, tighten it or report it to unit level maintenance.
Inspect welds. Look for loose or chipped paint, rust, or gaps where parts are welded together.
If a broken weld is found, report it to unit level maintenance.
Inspect electrical wires, connectors, terminals, and receptacles. Look for cracked or broken
insulation, bare wires, and loose or broken connectors. Tighten loose connectors and make sure
wires are in good condition. Examine terminals and receptacles for serviceability. If deficien-
cies are found, report them to unit level maintenance.
Inspect hoses and fluid lines. Look for wear, damage, and leaks. Make sure that clamps and
fittings are tight. Wet spots and stains around a fitting or connector can mean a leak. If a leak
comes from a loose connector, or if something is broken or worn out, report it to unit level
2-2.5 Leakage Definitions. You must know how fluid leakage affects the status of your equipment.
The following are definitions of the types/classes of leakage you need to know to be able to determine the
status of your equipment. Learn and be familiar with them. When in doubt, notify your supervisor.
Seepage of fluid (as indicated by wetness or discoloration) not great enough to form
Leakage of fluid great enough to form drops, but not enough to cause drops to drip
from the item being checked/inspected.
