While the User's intent may be to acquire a
Genset that can supply electrical power when the unit is called upon to do so, a
vital need exists to configure the system to its intended use to ensure success
and the attainment of the objective.
Size and Runtime:
Properly size the unit relative to its intended load.
How critical is the need? How long is the unit expected to provide reliable
power? The unit may require an adequately-sized
Sub Base fuel tank with enough capacity to sustain the projected unit runtime. This
runtime requirement may also be mandated by the local authorities having
jurisdiction over the application.
Power Enclosures builds Fuel Tanks in full compliance to the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA), requirements.
The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA)
categorized several levels of sound attenuations of which Levels I and II being
the most widely used. Essentially, 15 and 25dB(A) attenuation,
respectively. Other codes may also apply but local codes many times
prevail over the rests and it is suggested that a reputable Engineer or an
Architect familiar with those
codes be consulted with.
Is the unit secluded or installed near offices or
property lines? Local codes may require certain noise levels not be
exceeded when the unit is in operation. The unit's installed proximity will determine
what attenuation level will be required.
Ideally, the unit should be installed and is
readily-accessible for service and maintenance purposes while not compromising its
security so that the unit does not become an easy target for vandals or for easy
access by unauthorized
