Generator Sets and Diesel Engine Glazing

Posted on 29 March 2019

Engine glazing can cause major problems in generator sets when they're too lightly loaded. This is often caused by the generator not being sized correctly in the first place. It is critical that a generator is sized correctly especially when the load is constantly the same, to prevent glazing and also to be fuel efficient.
Operating diesel engines at light loads for extended periods of time can cause glazing to the cylinder bores. This occurs because poor combustion can lead to soot formation and unburnt fuel residue which clogs & gums up piston rings which causes the piston rings to not seal as well. Glazing of the cylinder bores occurs when hot combustion gases blow past the now poorly sealing piston rings and creates a glaze on the cylinder bore & increased oil consumption. This can lead to oil entering the exhaust, heavy carbon build up on: pistons, piston rings & ring grooves, valves & valve guides, cylinder head ports & exhaust pipes, and turbocharger seals on turbo charged engines.

If this is caught in early stages, increasing the load on the generator can burn the residues away, however if it is left unchecked, the engine can be damaged to point where it has to be rebuilt or replaced. It is well worthwhile making sure the generator is correctly sized for your situation, for assistance please contact us on 07 54467788.

Generator for Center Pivot Irrigator

Posted on 15 March 2019

A diesel generator is often used to power a centre pivot irrigator or lateral irrigator where there is no mains power available. We offer a heavy duty, reliable range of generator sets to suit this application. Sometimes the generator is also used to run the main irrigation pump, supplying water to the pivot or lateral irrigator. There are several important factors to consider when selecting the right generator for this job, and we can custom build so you get the ideal generator for the job. With choice of air cooled or water cooled engines from leading manufacturers such as Kubota, Perkins, Yanmar, Caterpillar, Deutz, Hatz and many more.

Generator for Solar Backup

Posted on 8 March 2019
Generator for Solar Backup

We offer diesel generators for off grid solar backup. The generator is normally fitted with an auto start system that suits solar integration, as the starting & stopping of the generator is controlled by the solar inverter. The purpose of having a backup generator for a solar system is to charge the batteries if they are getting low due to cloudy weather or rain, and some solar systems load share onto the generator if extra power is required. Not every generator is suitable for solar system backup power which is why we recommend discussing your requirements with us when making your decision. Our range of quality 1500rpm diesel generators are designed to give you reliable backup power, as well as being economical to run.

Prime Power Generator Sets

Posted on 1 March 2019
Prime Power Generator Sets

Prime power generators are normally a stand-alone generator where there is no mains power present, and must be able to run continuously. These must be tough, reliable & fuel efficient. We build heavy duty generator sets for this application, using engines such as Hino, Kubota, Yanmar, Caterpillar, Perkins & Deutz to name a few.
Based on what size you need, your location, site conditions and your preferences, we can build the ideal unit for your situation.

The advantages of a quality Allpower Australian made generator set are many, firstly - being built tough for our conditions. Many imported generators are not designed for operation in high ambient conditions, or for operation 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Availability of spare parts is critical, you can't afford to be stuck without a spare part & be out of power. Economy & reliability are also very important factors to consider.

Check out this 55kva Hino powered generator set we built for one of our long standing customers, it's the ultimate prime power generator set. Fitted with a simple & reliable key start panel with engine shutdown protection, its built tough to last.
