Precautions for Self Designed Diesel Generator Set Fuel Tank

Mar. 22, 2022

Different types of diesel generator sets have corresponding standard fuel tanks and fuel supply systems. There are many types of fuel tanks, and users can design discrete fuel tanks of various capacities according to requirements. The user can also design the fuel tank by himself. When designing the fuel tank of the diesel generator set, the user should pay attention to the following precautions:

(1) The storage location of the fuel tank must be safe to prevent fire. The fuel tank or oil drum should be placed in a visible place alone, properly away from the diesel generating set, and smoking is strictly prohibited.


(2) If the fuel tank is made by the user, it should be noted that the fuel tank of the standby diesel generator set is made of stainless steel or steel plate. Do not paint or galvanize the inside of the fuel tank, because they will chemically react with the diesel oil, which may cause damage to the diesel generator set. impurities and reduce the quality, cleanliness and combustion efficiency of diesel.


(3) After the fuel tank is placed, the high oil level should not 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 oil can be sent directly. The pressure is not more than 2.5 meters. Even when the diesel generator set is closed, the fuel is not allowed to flow into the diesel engine through the fuel inlet pipeline or the fuel injection pipeline by relying on gravity.


(4) The resistance at the oil port is not allowed to exceed the standard value when using the clean filter element specified on the performance data sheet of all diesel generator sets. This resistance value is based on half the fuel in the fuel tank.


(5) The orientation of the fuel supply pipe end of the fuel tank should be about 50MM higher than the bottom of the fuel tank of the diesel generator set to prevent sediment and water from being sucked into the fuel supply pipe.


(6) The connection of the fuel oil return line should not cause shock waves to appear in the fuel oil pipe of the diesel generator set.


(7) The fuel capacity in the fuel tank should ensure daily daily supply.


(8) The oil supply and oil return areas of the fuel tank shall be provided with perforated partitions to reduce the heat exchange of the diesel generator set.
