Diesel generators have been acknowledged for many years and have maintained a reputation of being reliable, easily adaptable, and quite affordable. The outcome these workhouses deliver when it comes to maintenance and initial costs makes diesel generators one of the most famous choices for power generations all over the world. Besides the low cost, its simple design makes sure that they can operate in a variety of environmental conditions like extreme heat, cold, and dust, etc. A small diesel generator can be adapted to fit almost any kind of application. These are used in the following industries.
- Main Power Source
- Backup Power Source
- Oil Production
- Mining and Forestry
- Medical Field
- Rental Property
- Stand Alone Prefabricated Buildings
- Maritime Operations / Ships
- Pumping Stations / Irrigation Operations
Advantages of Diesel Generators
- Efficient Design
All generators need a cooling component. A diesel generator doesn’t need a water pump, radiator, temperature gauge or hoses. There is no coolant required to freeze, leak, evaporate, boil, become contaminated or cause corrosion within the cooling system. The cooling system requires less short-term maintenance, less prone to cause any kind of system failure and reduces overall downtime.
- Use of Diesel Fuel
By using diesel generators, it uses less fuel overall than other natural gas units. The diesel generators fuel is safer to use than other fuel sources and is easily available onsite.
- Flexible Design
Because these generators a reliable and have a simple design, they can be used to accommodate any application. Mostly in the important long-run operations like maritime and navigational buoys and lighthouses or telecommunications equipment use diesel generators. Response team working in the disaster areas use lightweight and portable small diesel generators. It is much easier to use these generators in case of a fire, flood, avalanche, or earthquake. Failure rates are less in diesel generators because of its stand-alone capacity. Military operations use diesel generators because they are reliable under battle conditions.
- Operational Efficiency
The prime advantage of using diesel generator over other generators is that they can operate even in higher operating temperatures and rapidly warm-up. This greatly helps in reducing the cylinder bore, and piston/piston ring wear. By using diesel generators at a high temperature, sludging of the lubricating oil is reduced particularly in short-term scenarios. The rapid warm-up period allows the diesel engine to accept its full load capacity much faster than the liquid cool engine.
