Never operate the generator set in an explosive atmosphere…


Checkpoints to a Good Generator

Let’s go through the following checkpoints one needs to know before purchasing a generator: Voltage Regulation – maintained within ±3% Windings – 100% copper windings for maximum conductivity. Alternator – revolving field design reduces the size and weight of the generator. Brushless Excitation – eliminates brushes and slip rings for reduced maintenance costs and service time. Lifting Bale – standard and incorporates and folds down when not in use. Fuel Tanks – built-in fuel gauge and rugged steel construction to resist abuse Idle Control – reduces the engine RPM when not under load for improved fuel economy and prolongs the life of your generator. Full Power Switch – allows you to select either full rated 120 volt power or shared…

What to Consider Before purchasing a generator?

Before purchasing a natural gas-fuelled generator it’s important to have an evaluation of your natural gas service prior to the installation of any generator system – this ensures that the gas service size and meter are able to meet the additional requirements of the generator. Picking a generator can be a daunting task, mostly because you have never thought about how much power you actually use. Usually a typical house hold uses about 5KW and a typical barn uses about 5KW in lighting and small appliances. That gives you a place to start. Remember, when you are calculating your power requirements to calculate only what you need to run if utility power is unavailable. Now that you have calculated what…
