Misfiring on Gas Engines
AlphaSystem™ is not only suitable as a powerful diagnostic tool for diesel engines. Misfiring events which are specific to gas engines can also be detected reliably.
In this case from the field, AlphaSystem™ detected a defect spark plug on 16th January and signaled a misfiring condition. The Superior 16SGTD engine was operated until 21st January and then inspected. The graph above shows AlphaSystem™‘s operating condition indicator before and after the spark plug failure and after maintenance was performed.
