Filters really are your generator set’s first line of defence against dirt and debris, which if not caught by a filter can damage the engine and, at the very least, reduce its efficiency.
Replacing your filters should be part of your regular maintenance program and it is one of the best ways to maximise performance and minimise lifecycle operating costs. Filters are a relatively small and inexpensive part of your generator set but, as with anything to do with regular maintenance, servicing them is critical to ensuring the peak performance of your generator set.
Aren’t all filters the same? The answer is clear, no! Only genuine filters sold by FG Wilson are designed, built and tested to meet the engine specifications. Non-genuine filters are typically built to meet a price point and are tested in a laboratory, not rigorously tested in real life conditions to ensure long lasting life and performance of your generator set.
Using non-genuine filters may save you money now but in the long term they can cost you dearly. Higher levels of contaminants in your generator set leads to increased fuel consumption and a shorter service life. That means higher running costs and expensive repairs.
Real-world tests show that genuine filters outperform alternative filters, delivering real cost savings:
