Choosing the wrong model may result in damage to the generator or equipment and components connected to be destroyed.
In fact, choosing the right industrial generator is one of the most critical factors in buying a generator.
Different models are available for different functions, and new buyers will not be blamed for being confused in the first five minutes of choosing a model.
1. Buyers need to know that there are a variety of generator sizes to choose from.
These categories are separated by levels of power supply capacity, ranging from 5 kW to as much as 50 kW, for personal use. For industrial use, the numbers have grown even larger, from 50 kW to 3 MW, or small power plants.
Industrial units typically meet offices, data centers that require uninterruptible power supplies, and industrial or plant needs. Based on experience, it is better to choose a larger generator than is assumed on demand. Having more capacity is a better location than not having enough capacity in an emergency.
- The type of fuel needs to be considered. Gasoline powered generators are common, but they are not necessarily suitable for use in a variety of environments.
For example, in a very cold environment, diesel is a better choice because it is hard to freeze. The supply location is also a problem.
Certain fuel types may be more difficult to obtain locally or in an emergency than other types.
Taking into account these possibilities helps to choose the right machine for most situations that a business may face.
- The selected generator must be reliable. A generator is usually required because the main power has been turned off, removed due to some repairs or maintenance, or used as a backup system for preventive measures.
In any case, when the generator must be turned on, this is required every time a demand occurs. Otherwise, it is just a heavy piece of garbage. Therefore, working with cheap, unfamiliar brands to save a few dollars can be a big mistake.
Working with mature and fully experienced mature generator manufacturers will avoid significant damage in the future.
There will be a great deal of detail and technical knowledge to cover, but the three categories above are critical to choosing the right industrial generator.
There is no harm in getting advice, especially for the specific connection and load requirements that will occur.
However, the buyer still has to make a final decision, and too small at the start of the first generator may be a major mistake.
