Why would a generator set need an engine block heater?

Generator set engine heater

Maybe you are a generator set manufacturer and your company produces generator sets as a solution for sudden power failures.

For example, in the event of a sudden power outage in a hospital, there is a need for a backup power source to provide power to the hospital to maintain the patient’s life system. The diesel engine, on the other hand, may have difficulty starting at low temperatures. Using the Vvkb engine coolant heater Titan-P5, it is able to maintain the generator set at a relatively high temperature at all times. Regardless of any electrical system problems, the generator sets you produce will be able to start and provide power within a few seconds.

Plug standard: American standard, European standard and Australian standard

The general introduction of the oil pan heater

After the vehicle has been parked for a few hours, the engine oil will flow back into the oil pan. In cold weather, engine oil can become very sticky, making it difficult for the oil to flow to all parts of the engine. During cold starts, the engine does not have enough lubricant and engine parts may wear out.

Using an oil pan heater to heat the engine oil pan allows the oil inside the pan to rise in temperature and at startup, the hot oil is supplied to the critical wear point of the engine. This reduces engine wear and reduces engine pollutant emissions.

The advantage of the oil pan heater is that it is very easy to install, but the disadvantage is that it has too little power to heat the engine cooling system.

The oil pan heater can be used on vehicle engines, batteries, fuel tanks, and various other machines that need to be heated.

Your customers may use it in different places, and we can customize the silicone heating pad for you with different sizes and power.
