Technical Requirements For Fuel Tanks Of Diesel Generator Sets

Jun. 10, 2022

The use of diesel generators is inseparable from the matching use of fuel tanks, so what are the technical requirements for fuel tanks of diesel generator sets? Jiangsu Starlight Electricity Equipments Co.,Ltd. will analyze them in detail below.


1. Pay attention to the oil level and the height of the oil pipe end. The maximum oil level cannot be 2.5 meters higher than the base of the diesel generator set. If the oil level of the large oil depot is higher than 2.5 meters, a daily fuel tank should be added between the large oil depot and the diesel generator set, so that the pressure of direct oil delivery is not more than 2.5 meters. Even during the shutdown of the diesel generator set, the fuel is not allowed to flow into the diesel engine through the oil inlet line or the fuel injection line by gravity, the position of the oil pipe end should be higher than the bottom of the fuel tank to prevent sediment and water from being sucked into the fuel supply pipe.


2. Pay attention to the storage location of the fuel tank. The oil tank or oil drum should be placed in a visible place alone, properly away from the diesel generator set, and it is strictly stipulated that no smoking is allowed to prevent fire.

3. For the fuel tank made by the user, it should be made of stainless steel or steel plate for spare. Do not paint or galvanize the inside of the fuel tank, because they will chemically react with the diesel oil, resulting in the reduction of diesel quality, cleanliness and combustion efficiency.


4. The resistance at the oil port should be less than the specified value when using a clean filter element specified on the product performance data sheet of the generator set.


5. The oil supply and oil return areas of the fuel tank should be provided with perforated partitions, etc., to reduce the heat exchange of the diesel generator set.


6. Ensure the daily supply of daily oil The fuel capacity in the fuel tank should ensure daily daily supply.


7. The connection of the fuel oil return pipeline should avoid the shock wave of the fuel in the oil pipeline of the motor unit.


Height requirements for diesel generator fuel tank location?

1. Higher than the oil inlet: it is convenient to enter the oil and reduce the time for exhausting the air when the unit is started.


2. Lower than the fuel injector: to prevent oil hammer from being backfilled by fuel in the oil return pipe, if your oil return pipe has a one-way valve, it can be about 1.5 meters higher.


3. The fuel tank is higher than the fuel pump, but the overall height should not exceed the height of the oil return pipe of the diesel engine.


4. The volume of the fuel tank can meet full load operation for 8 hours.


5. It is forbidden to use galvanized materials for oil supply pipes and containers.


The above 1 and 2 are the requirements for the mechanical protection of the unit, 3 is the mandatory fire protection regulations (hard conditions, otherwise the fire inspection will not pass the test), 4 is the diesel oil and galvanized things will have a chemical reaction, the diesel generator fuel tank design meets the above 4 points That's it.
