ENGINE COOLING SYSTEMS & ITS TYPES - GENSET
As the name explains, a generating set or a silent generator is a system that generates electricity.
Silent diesel generators are used for the purpose of providing back-up or redundancy electricity when the main system goes offline.
The genset consists of an engine, fueled often by diesel which creates the electricity to be used by the site.
When the generator engine is running it becomes hot and needs to be cooled down. This is done by circulating a coolant through the radiator of the power generator engine.
This coolant maintains the temperature of the dg sets.
Some of the most well-known generator manufacturing companies are experienced in thermal / mechanical designing and manufacturing Engine Cooling System for silent diesel generator sets.
Generally speaking, a cooling package is complete when it consists of Engine Jacket Water (EJW) , Low Temperature After Cooler (LTA), Charge Air Cooler (CAC),Fuel cooler and Fan & Drive assembly.
Most of these companies design and manufacture Engine cooling System for kva generators for the small 35 KVA rating to the very large 3000 KVA rating & around.
Also, here are some of the common type of radiators used for the cooling procedures for such gensets.
Aluminium Brazed Radiators:-
The aluminium Brazed Radiator Assemblies are known for its superb performance, efficiency and are maintenance-free.
Each Unit is designed for optimization, with a range of unique features using the latest technology.
These Aluminium brazed radiator Assemblies are very compact, lightweight yet have very high thermal efficiency.
They are very robust, strong, reliable & cost effective.
The Engine Jacket water cooler consoles, Low temperature ambient cooler consoles, fuel cooler, charge coolers together form a part of engine cooling systems in Aluminium Brazed radiators.
Copper Brass Radiators:-
Copper Brass radiators are made up of brass tubes and copper fins. They are usually manufactured in heavy duty and light duty constructions.
Are very optimal for higher rating silent generators and are easily serviceable. Also, extremely durable and have a very long life.
High Integrity Radiators
High - Integrity Radiators are constructed using our a completed different type of technology.
They are extremely rigid, strong and robust, ideal to withstand high vibrations in very high rating kva generator sets(1000 KVA and above).
They have a very long life with superior thermal efficiency & are a cost economical solution. In this the Low Temperature (LT) and High temperature (HT) circuits can be combined to run
with a common fan. This fan can be either engine driven or electric motor driven. Another possibility is to use High - Integrity Radiators for containerised silent generators with roof top fans.
High Integrity Radiators are widely used in dg sets covering ranges from 1010, 1250, 1500, 2000, 2250 to 3000 KVA.
