Water-cooling systems still dominate industrial power generators line

Makers raise cooling efficiency while reducing noise levels.


  • Greater cooling efficiency: Three-phase 4-stroke air- and water-cooled diesel engines are widely used. Water-cooling engines dominate output for their higher cooling efficiency. Air-cooling variants are usually employed in 10kW or below models, while the latter are common in above 10kW units. 
  • Wheels: Some generators come with wheels for movability. Rubber types are common. 
  • Added value: Many releases are equipped with a brake system to keep them in position. A number can shut down automatically when the oil is below the required level, water temperature is too high or during a short circuit. More makers are offering low-noise units in box-type and on-vehicle versions, the latter particularly suitable for movie and TV production, and municipal engineering construction.
