Air-cooled or water-cooled

Air-cooled generators rely on air to provide cooling for the generator. There are no components other than the use of an air intake system. Water-cooled generators rely on water for cooling and contain a separate system to perform this function. Water-cooled generators require more maintenance than air-cooled generators.


Power Output

Diesel generators have a wide range of power output and can be classified accordingly.3 kVA diesel generators can be used to run power tools or appliances such as alternators, computers, multiple ceiling fans, etc. They are suitable for small offices, stores and homes. While 2000 kVA diesel generators are suitable for large industries or where there is a high demand for electricity.


Power Supply

It is important to know the requirements of a home/business before purchasing a diesel generator. Depending on the needs of the premises, generators from 2.5kVA to over 2000kVA can be used.


Applications and Uses of Diesel Engines

Diesel engines are commonly used as machine engines, generators and mobile drives. They are widely used in locomotives, construction equipment, automobiles and countless industrial applications. Their field extends to almost all industries, and they can be observed every day if you want to delve into everything that passes by.


Industrial diesel engines and diesel generators have construction, marine, mining, hospital, forestry, telecommunications, underground and agricultural applications, just to name a few. Power generation for primary or backup standby power is the main application for diesel generators today. 

Diesel Generators

Diesel generators or gensets are used in countless industrial and commercial establishments. Generators can be used for small loads such as homes, or larger loads such as industrial plants, hospitals and commercial buildings. They can be primary or backup/standby power sources.


They are available in a variety of sizes and dimensions. Diesel generator sets rated from 5 to 30 kW are typically used for simple household and personal applications such as recreational vehicles. Industrial applications cover a wider range of power ratings (from 30 kW to 6 MW) and are used in numerous industries worldwide. For home use, single-phase generators are sufficient.
