Diesel Gensets

diesel gensets Diesel gensets are an excellent option in recreation, home, worksite, and industrial power generators. A diesel generator and an electric alternator, diesel gensets are designed to operate efficiently. Diesel gensets are an effective and durable option whether it’s a small portable diesel generator for camping trips and back up power for occasional outages or a standby diesel generator able to power a hospital or supplement the power grid during peak times.

Diesel gensets are manufactured by several companies. The Deutz diesel generator set set uses dependable German engineering. Mitsubishi is a trusted name in engines and generators and the Mitsubishi generator set is popular because of its reliability.deutz diesel generator set Other diesel electric generator sets are Caterpillar gensets (Perkins diesel generator sets) and Detroit diesel gensets.

Diesel gensets are excellent choices for small to heavy power supply needs as long as the diesel genset is run near capacity regularly. Experts recommend running diesel generators regularly at 70%-80% load at least 30 minutes every 30 days.

diesel electric generator sets Because of the advantages of diesel generators, diesel electric generator sets make an excellent power choice for homeowners, RV enthusiasts, contractors, ships, locomotives, hospitals, care centers, and businesses. Cost of operation and longevity of the diesel generator are major advantages. Running a diesel generator is low cost. Diesel gensets are very fuel efficient. Fuel costs for diesel generators is 30%-50% lower than propane of regular gasoline generators. Diesel gensets have more robust motors. Because they run cooler than gas generators, diesel gensets have a longer life and can go longer without overhauls. Chances are, when a propane or regular gas generator is ready to be replaced, a diesel generator simply needs an oil change!

It is important to run diesel gensets regularly at high loads to avoid the smoke and rough running associated with excess fuel in the injectors. Running the diesel generator at a high load will avoid carbon build up and glazing in the injectors. Remember, diesel engines are designed to be used and get the best fuel efficiency when operating at high loads. The worst thing you can do for your diesel electric generator is to under use it!

Recommendations for the maintenance of the Deutz generator set, Mitsubishi diesel generator set, Caterpillar diesel generator set, Detroit diesel generator set, and other genset brands will vary slightly, but when prescribed maintenance schedules are followed, you are assured a long and efficient life for your diesel genset.

While diesel fuel generators are a reliable, cost-effective, and fuel-saving choice for standby power, RV generators, construction generators, and industrial uses, diesel does have some disadvantages. Engine noise in diesel engines is higher. But, properly designed enclosures or sound attenuations systems can overcome the noise. The availability of diesel fuel may be a problem during extended power outages. Hurricane-prone areas may need a lot of diesel fuel stored to run a diesel genset. Fuel storage can raise the cost of the diesel backup power system considerably if large amounts of diesel fuel are needed. But diesel fuel has an advantage over regular gasoline, it stores for 18-24 months without additives: 6-18 months longer than regular gasoline. Other disadvantages of diesel gensets are diesel generators are typically heavier than gas generators and some states have emissions restrictions on the operation of diesel gensets. Taking all the factors of diesel generated power into consideration, diesel electric generator sets are a most effective option for power.
