Cleaning Intervals

  • The amount of contamination in the cooling system depends on the engine applications.
  • Spilled oil or fuel on the engine increases the risk of contamination. Be especially careful if the engine is used in dusty environments.
  • Serious contamination can occur for example:
    • on construction sites where thee is a high  level of air-borne dust.
    • in harvesting applications where there are high concentrations of chaff and chopped straw in the vicinity of the machine
  • Because applications vary, cleaning intervals have to be determined from case to case. The cleaning intervals given in the table below can be used as a guide.
