  • Wet stacking is a condition that occurs when the
    unused diesel fuel, accumulated moisture, and
    carbon particles are allowed to gather in the
    exhaust of the diesel generator.
  • This can happen for a number of reasons but
    usually results from diesel fuel not being
    properly burned off during use.
  • As a result, a dark muddy liquid congeals in the
    generators exhaust stacks hence the term "wet
    stacking".

  • Wet stacking can occur as a result of several
    issues. However, the primary reasons are
  • Letting the generator sit unused for long periods
    of time
  • Not allowing the generator to run under its
    designated operating temperature
  • Allowing the generator to run at less than 60 of
    its rated output
  • Running the generator with an incorrect
    air-to-fuel ratio
  • Having too little fuel in the generator
