Single phase generators tend to be smaller, and these portable options certainly fit that bill. Single phase simply means that the generator uses an alternating electrical current. This produces one single voltage which alternates continuously. Our portable single phase generators for sale are compact, lightweight and highly convenient. Many of them can be pulled along thanks to integrated wheels and others are light enough to simply pick up and carry by hand. There are lots of them in our store, and we’re going to talk about some of the examples below, as well as the uses and applications.
We have a range of different portable gensets on offer. Some of them are diesel powered and others petrol generators. The petrol options include both the lightweight and affordable Pramac PX4000, the easy to carry Pramac E4000 and the 2kVA Pramac P2000i which comes complete with a Yamaha engine. There’s also the Pramac E3250 model, which is easy to use with a simple design and a professional performance. Then there’s the diesel options such as the Pramac P4500 with a key start system and 3.5kVA prime output. The Pramac P6000s also uses diesel and is very easy to move around thanks to its handle bar and integrated wheels.
These portable generators are useful in a wide range of scenarios. In particular, they’re used around the home and garden for things like powering tools. Small businesses can also use them for their power generation needs when they’re on a work site or out and about. Anyone who enjoys camping and caravanning knows the importance of having access to power, and a portable generator like the ones mentioned above offers the ideal solution. Any situation in which power is needed on the go requires one of these single phase portable generators, so if you think you could benefit from one too, browse the options.
You will benefit in all kinds of ways from using these models. They’re very light and easy to use, and you don’t have to worry about finding a place to store a large generator that takes up space on your property. These are all small enough to be stored pretty much anywhere you might want to store them. And you’ll never be in a situation where you don’t have access to the power you need, whether you’re trimming the hedges or going on a camping trip in the woods with your whole family. They make life so much easier than it might otherwise be in such situations.
Three phase diesel engine powered units are different to their single phase alternatives due to how the electrical current is handled. It alternates the electrical current being generated by the magnetic field depending on the needs of the situation. It essentially offers a better power supply, making these extremely good working generators more reliable and ideal for larger jobs, such as business applications or powering whole homes in the event of a power outage. These obviously have a much larger footprint than portable power equipment and have to be installed in a fixed position on your land.
Silent generators are designed and built in a way to maximise the protection against noise problems. If the noise becomes too much, you will find that the generators are not really suitable for residential settings which is obviously a bit of a problem. The point of enclosing the generator in a soundproof acoustic canopy is to make them useful in residential spots where noise needs to be kept down to a minimum, and they can also be used by businesses that don’t want noise from standby generators to be distracting to staff or customers.
We have many different silent diesel generators available on our website, and they all offer something slightly different to all the others. Pramac and Cummins silent diesel ranges are both very popular, with one of the first options we should talk about being the Cummins C22D5. It uses the Cummins X2.5G2 engine, and it’s known to be one of the best in the industry when it comes to generating electrical power. It features an easy to use PowerStart PS0500 control panel and has a prime output of 20 kVA (or 16 kW). Then there’s the Pramac GSW30P silent diesel generator that comes with a UK built Perkins engine. With a prime output of 30 kVA (24 kW), it’s a powerful model with a lot to offer for the price.
Those are just some of the silent diesel generator models we offer, and there are plenty of others, ranging from 20 kVA all the way up to high-end options such as the Cummins C550D5e and the Pramac GSW415P. The main benefits associated with all these models is that they’re very reliable, durable and able to meet your needs.
Three phase open diesel generators work in the same way as far as how mechanical energy is converted to electrical energy and how the electrical current is handled. But the main difference is obviously in how the generator performs and the noise that is produced. Because there is no canopy to provide sound protection, the noise is much louder, making these generators better for commercial situations. They’re not really suitable for use in residential areas where there might be a problem with causing noise problems that impact people in the immediate vicinity. This should all factor into your decision making when choosing a generator.
Open units are also a lot more powerful and costly than silent generators. Their size and noise means that they’re used in industrial settings in which businesses need to get important work done in order to remain efficient and on track. Because of that, we only stock the most reliable models. It’s important that businesses can keep going when they’re relying on their generator. Cummins and Perkins produce some of the most powerful and reliable open diesel generators on the market, and we have plenty of them for you to browse on your website.
Cummins offer two models at the highest end of the scale, with the C3000D5, capable of 3000 kVA standby, and the slightly less powerful C2750D5. These 4-cycle units are extremely reliable and are used by some of the largest companies around to complete industrial tasks that require continuous power.
There are less powerful options that we also supply if you’re not looking for something quite as high-end. The Perkins AP1500 is an option that many people turn to when they need a reliable open diesel generator. It offers 1500 kVA prime, which is more than enough for most industrial requirements. At 640 kVA prime, there’s also the Cummins C700D5, which offers the reliability, convenience and high standards you’d expect from Cummins. It contains the Cummins VTA28 series engine, which is turbo charged.
