1000KVA Perkins 4008TAG2A Diesel Generator Data Sheet

Jan. 09, 2020

Starlight will share 1000KVA 800KW Perkins diesel generator data sheet in this article, including the introduction to the Perkins engine, and the alternator as well as controller technical parameters.

Perkins 4000 Series family of 6, 8, 12 and 16 cylinder diesel engines was designed in advance of today’s uncompromising demands within the power generation industry and includes superior performance and reliability.

The 4008TAG2A is turbo-charged, air-to-air charge cooled, 8 cylinder in-line diesel engine. Offered with either Temperate or Tropical cooling packages (with or without fuel cooling). Their premium design and specification features provide economic and durable operation as well as exceptional power to weight ratio, improved serviceability, low gaseous emissions, overall performance and reliability essential to the power generation market.

Perkins diesel engine 4008TAG2A

Economic power

1. Individual four valve per cylinder heads give optimised gas flows, whilst digitally governed unit fuel injectors ensure ultra fine fuel atomisation and hence controlled rapid combustion, for efficiency and economy

2. Commonality of components with other engines in the 4000 Series family allows reduced parts stocking levels.

Reliable power

1. Developed and tested using latest engineering techniques

2. Piston temperatures are controlled by an advanced gallery jet cooling system

3. All engines are tolerant of a wide range of temperatures without derate

4. Service is provided by the extensive Perkins network of over 4,000 distributors and dealers worldwide

Clean, efficient power

1. Exceptional power to weight ratio and compact size for easier transportation and installation

2. New designed radiator assemblies with corrosion inhibiting powder coated surfaces; fewer pipe joints and easier access to reduce maintenance times

3. Designed to provide excellent service access for ease of maintenance

4. Engines designed to comply with major international standards

5. Low gaseous emissions for cleaner operation
