Gas Generator

Understand the exhaust gas color of a Generator

Find out how to identify the type of malfunction through the smoke analysis! The exhaust gas exit of a Diesel Genset can indicate that something is wrong because it shouldn’t have any color in normal usage conditions.In the start-up of the genset or when it must provide power abruptly, it is perfectly normal that the engine releases a little bit of smoke, because of the turbo delay when trying to stabilize the airflow velocity that corresponds to the injected diesel volume inside [...]

Auxiliary Emergency Systems

What types of Auxiliary Emergency Systems there are?

An auxiliary emergency system is an equipment that provides support to meet the energy needs of a given location or infrastructure, can function as a primary or complementary source. Auxiliary emergency system presupposes design, development and installation tailored to the needs and conditions of the infrastructures which will assist. To achieve this, the assembly teams must use all their experience to implement a reliable solution corresponding to the demanding levels of the final application.When faced with types of large installations [...]

What is a genset?

A genset refers to an equipment whose function is to convert the so-called heat capacity into mechanical energy and then into electrical energy. Briefly, it consists of a motor and an alternator that are coupled and inserted in a base with other elements. These complementary elements are:batteries, fuel tank, control panel, automatic transfer switch, and soundproof.In terms of use, gensets can usually be used as a main source or as an auxiliary source to respond to energy needs, in [...]

Diesel Generator | Grupel

How Diesel Generator Works

The diesel generator is an equipment whose use is indicated for applications that require more power and for continuous operation. They convert the fuel into electrical energy, through the combustion of diesel. This type of fuel, compared to others like gasoline, for example, is burned at a higher temperature, hence more efficient and ensure greater power to the generator. Diesel generators require regular maintenance to function properly. In general, how does a diesel generator work?First, air is blown into the [...]
