Diesel generators are incredibly useful machines that can be used by homeowners and business owners alike. Their ability to provide backup electricity when power cuts strike is second to none. This provides owners with both emotional reassurance as well as direct benefits.
Portable diesel generators are highly versatile. They’re lightweight but pack a powerful punch when needed, providing the crucial backup energy you need to get through any power cut. They can even be used at a house, static or mobile home or any other places of interest that power is required.
A range of portable diesel generator units are available. From inverter generators with AC outlets and portable suitcase generators, to heavy-duty portable gensets complete with transportation kits.
Noise levels are one of the few potential stumbling blocks that you may face. However, a super silent diesel generator will soon overcome this issue. As the name suggests, they run very quietly. This is thanks to close-fit sound-reducing canopies, so that you can continue with your work or leisure without any distractions.
Silent options are very popular in commercial settings. Our range of silent, enclosed generators are available with extras, such as 400 or 240 volt, 16 or 32 amp sockets. Making it even easier to find a model suited to your specific requirements.
Open generators are most commonly used in industry as their lack of noise cancellation can be distracting for home usage. However, they are capable of providing huge amounts of power at 1500 rpm. Therefore, they are very useful when running lots of machinery on site.
With open generators, it’s also easy to add a wide range of options. This enables our team to provide you with the perfect solution for your unique requirements.
At the lower end of the spectrum, single phase diesel generators are the most affordable, with the cheaper options starting at around £1,500. They are designed to create a single alternating current at 115 or 230 volts. This means they are best used for small equipment or residential applications.
They can be a popular choice for homeowners and small businesses alike. When simply powering lighting or other items with low-consumption, single phase generators are perfect.
Home generators can come in many forms, covering portable, silent, and single phase options. In most cases, they do not need to provide a huge amount of power. However, they may be required to provide backup electricity during a power outage.
After all, businesses are likely to have resources dedicated to restoring a power cut. As a homeowner, you’re more likely to be at the mercy of the energy suppliers.
"Genset" is commonly used term that is simply short for "generator set". More specifically, it covers diesel generators that combine a diesel fuel engine with an electric generator that rotates and generates power. They can be open or enclosed while variants include portable, heavy duty and key start solutions.
As with home generators, gensets is a term used to cover many of the types already mentioned. Just be sure that you are getting a reliable service from a trustworthy manufacturer.
Standby power generators are an ideal source of backup energy for the home. And particularly for those that have solar panels and live off-grid. When mains electricity is temporarily lost, one of these will get your home systems up and running with immediate results. Providing that the generator has an electric start control panel, ATS Panel and a ready fuel supply.
A standby diesel generator can also be utilised by businesses that cannot afford a drop in power even for a few minutes. Power capacities can vary massively depending on the exact model you opt for.
