May 17, 2022
The fuel tank is an important part of a diesel generator set. When you buy a diesel generator set, you will find that the generator set has two types of bottom fuel tank and external seat fuel tank. So which fuel tank should you choose when buying a diesel generator set?
To know which fuel tank to choose, first we should know the difference between the bottom fuel tank and the external fuel tank.
External fuel tank: It is generally suitable for open-frame diesel generator sets. The disadvantage is that the appearance is not beautiful, but it is practical. No matter where it is used, it can be used after taking it out and installing diesel oil.
Bottom fuel tank: Advantages The bottom fuel tank, as a part of the unit, has good integrity, compact structure, beautiful appearance, not easy to leak oil, and is also suitable for field operations; There will be impurities, if not cleaned for a long time, it will cause damage to the oil circuit of the diesel generator set. So relatively speaking, the external fuel tank has a slight advantage over the bottom fuel tank.
Whether the diesel generator set should choose the bottom fuel tank or the external fuel tank, Tingbo Electric recommends that you choose the appropriate fuel tank according to your actual application. If there are no special requirements, JUNVOCH recommends that the user should use the external fuel tank, which is convenient for maintenance and maintenance, and can also Increase inlet pressure. If it has been equipped with a bottom fuel tank, it is better to raise the unit or set up a sewage pipeline for easy cleaning and maintenance.
