The following all need to be considered when you are thinking of installing a generator set:
1)Location - you will need to think of where you want to place the generator set - ideally it should be located in a place with adequate access and lighting for service and maintenance purposes. Generators can be located inside or outside your premises - WALT offer Sound Attenuated Canopies when generators are to be located outside.
2).Mounting - generator sets should be mounted on a level base and use anti-vibration mounts when necessary. Most level surfaces are suitable, if installing a set on soil or a roof you should consult a civil engineer.
3).Ventilation and Cooling - it is important to make sure that there is enough ventilation to help keep the generator cool and to remove excess fumes and heat produced through engine combustion.
Fuel System - you will need to consider how you will refuel your generator. Several refueling options are available from manual pumps to fully automatic systems. Smaller sets usually have a manually operated mechanical or electrical operated pump, which can refill the set"s base tank from a fuel drum.
