The characteristics of Grupel’s CanopiesCarlos Martins
Grupel's product development team works daily for the constant improvement of each of our products, with the purpose of evolving and innovating the final product and, ultimately, satisfying the needs of our clients.
From one of these improvement projects, a new type of canopy emerged which is more resistant and whose manufacturing process is faster and more flexible.
But which features distinguish Grupel’s canopies?
- Bolted / non-welded canopy
The main advantage of the bolted canopy is that it presents very low levels of oxidation, comparing to welded versions. Also, the canopy design has an overlap system with layers, similar to a rooftop, to minimize to the maximum, the water entrance. If the water enters, the canopy lets it get out easier.
- Easy cleaning
Possibility to easily remove the tank to clean it.
- Possibility of change
Our models allow the user to change from an open genset to a soundproof option easily and without changing its functionality.
- Door latch
It has a depth adjustment, and it doesn’t exist a hole in the door jamb to close.
- Fuel tank
The plastic fuel tank is independent form the chassis. In this way, there is a decrease in leakage due to the absence of welding and to the transportation or movement of the genset with a forklift.
- Cylindric exhaust silencing system
The exhaust silencing system is available in aluminized steel plate. The cylindric shape minimizes the oxidation by not retaining water.
- Air inlet and cables exist in plastic
These two components are made of highly durable plastic, reducing welding points to a minimum.
- Alteration in the latch and hinge of the control panel
The quality of the material is much higher than before.
- Two independent panels
The electric panel is composed by a control panel and power panel. These two are separated and the access to each one of them is independent.
There is easy access to the battery, and it isn’t in contact with the tank.
- Base frame reinforcement
The base frame was designed to have hidden feet and therefore be more appealing.
- Retention bund
High quality component.
- Fuel return pipe
The fuel return pipe is away from the admission and fuel level sensor. This feature reduces mixing of hot fuel with the one entering the engine, improving genset performance and fuel level accuracy due to the swirling of diesel fuel as it enters the tank.
