We are using XA 120 in our site, and we used to get this alarm also frequently.
What we noticed is that we had a build up in the coolers and also in the pressure switches.
We had to change the coolers and pressure switches frequently.
Seems that these compressors are only made for start up and they cannot run too long, otherwise it will build up burned lube through the whole system.
Did you change the pressure switches with new ones.
I’m interested in the foto’s. We are having the same problems. We have already changed 6 separators.
We also asked Wartsila, but no reply. We are still awaiting their answer.
Thank you for you’re reply.
I’m stated in South America (Surinam).
We are using heavy fuel oil with a sulphur of 0.7%.
Do you have more information about this problem.
All, Thanks for the reply.
We already done some analysis and there was no evidence of water.
We are still taking samples.
These engines are connected through headers with each other. We also thought that it was Fuel. The only way for the fuel to enter the engine is through the fuel pumps.
We changed all the fuel pumps, but still we have this problems.
Till know the level is rising.
Yhank you for you reply.
We opened a technical request at Wartsila. We are still awaiting their reply.
Thanks for the reply.
We don’t have the Unic control, so i’m looking forward to a solution.
Sometime at startup the temperatures are very low, so if the deviation starts these temp are sometime below the deviation and the engines trips. If it was an alarm you can still do something about it.February 1, 2018 at 11:05 am in reply to: Problem of the lever of the barring getting broken almost constantly. #1767
