The Lifecycle of an Industrial Diesel Engine

Posted Tue, September 8, 2015 by Ken Conway

Industrial diesel engines are the powerhouses of various sectors, including the oil and gas industry, construction businesses and others. When purchasing an industrial diesel engine, it is important to evaluate the pros and cons of your purchase and explore your options. While both diesel and gas engines have their benefits, diesel engines are often favored for their durability and lifespan.

Purchasing an Industrial Diesel Engine

If you’re considering purchasing an industrial diesel engine, , the best way to start is by comparing several different models to see which one will be best suited to your needs. We stock an extensive inventory of quality new and used diesel engines, reconditioned diesel engines, and 0-hour remanufactured diesel engines.  If you are unsure of what kind is best for your needs, we would be happy to assist you in your search.

Average Cost of Maintenance throughout its Lifespan

Compared to a gas engine, a diesel engine is much less expensive throughout its lifespan when it comes to maintenance. A diesel engine has high engine efficiency and no spark plugs, two major money saving factors.  Throughout the average lifespan of a diesel engine, you can expect to spend around $10,000 in maintenance costs compared to the average amount of maintenance costs for a gas engine at $11,500. Lastly, a diesel engine is able to create more energy with each tank of fuel, which will save you money in power production and fuel costs.

The Expected Lifespan of the Engine

 A diesel engine can last almost twice as long as a gas engine because of its efficiency and design.  The actual life expectancy of a diesel engine will vary depending on the type of engine you purchase and how well it is, but diesel engines are known for their durability and long-lasting qualities.

Industrial diesel engines are able to equip you and your team with the power your need to do your job well. With their reliability, lower maintenance costs and needs, and lifespan, you will be able to focus on other areas of your business instead of spending time worrying about your equipment. If you are considering purchasing an industrial diesel engine, S&W Powers would love to assist you in your search.
