What You Need to Know About Diesel Generators

If you’ve ever considered investing in a diesel generator, you’ll need to know about how they run, which one is best for you, and the pros of using one. As a leading UK and international supplier of high quality diesel generators, we’re saving you doing all of the research in this blog.

A diesel generator is the combination of a diesel engine with an electric generator to power electrical energy. It is designed to run on diesel fuel, however some types are adapted for other liquid fuels or natural gasses. Diesel powered generators are used in places without connection to a power grid, or as an emergency power supply if the grid fails.

Backup diesel generators are especially important for places such as hospitals, government buildings and telecommunications/data centres where an interruption to the power supply could be disastrous. When properly maintained by professionals, a diesel generator can serve your business for up to 25 years, providing a valuable and reliable source of power.

There are many positives that come with using a diesel generator. For example, they are the backbone for the mining and construction industries, being the most cost-effective and fuel-efficient units you can buy. You also get a lower cost of ownership as modern diesel powered generators cost less to run and have a longer lifespan. This is because diesel engines do not have to work as hard as petrol engines to get the same power output, therefore the engine parts are under less stress. Diesel fuel is also self-lubricating, which means it should last longer and can also operate at loads between 60% to 100% for prolonged periods, which is a clear advantage over its petrol counterpart.

So which diesel generator should you choose? At JS Power we believe that bespoke is better, and provide an array of ‘Made in Britain’, CE approved generators which are custom-built for your specific needs. With a combination of 50 years’ experience and the use of top quality components from trusted brands like Deutz and Perkins, we can provide you with the most cost-effective power solution for your requirements.
