Industrial diesel engines have revolutionized power generation
An industrial diesel engine is one that serves industrial operations run on diesel. The industrial diesel engines are basically employed to supply power to a large number of industrial machines, from bulldozers, trucks, pumps to generators. Typically, the size of such engines may range from a few pounds to a few tons, which could offer power anywhere between few kilowatts (KW) to few GigaWatts.
The Industrial diesel engines can be categorized according to their speed, that is, rotations per minute (rpm). There are high rpm engines used for lighter and most common applications such as the land equipment or trucks. The medium rpm engines are employed for power generation. The high torque engines with low rpm are utilized for biggest equipment, such as marine applications.
The industrial diesel engines are also classified according to their power generating potential. The smaller engines are used for residential purposes at about 10kw and can cost a few thousand USD. There are some small-scale engines that can power most of the mobile machinery today, such as small boats, earthmovers, stationary process machinery, trucks etc.
The medium-scale engines offers power between a few hundred KW to a few thousand KW and are priced at tens of thousands of US dollars. Such engines are used for larger machinery, which includes military equipment, oil rigs, trains, large boats, large mining equipment and more. The largest diesel engines can generate up to 10,000 to 80,000 KW. These are generally used in for electric power generation, large ships and ultra-heavy machinery.
The diesel engines are used to generate power during emergencies, helping to save blackouts. These units continuously monitor the electrical current and automatically start up in case the power is discontinued restoring the interrupted operations. The industrial diesel engines are revolutionary products that have helped in generating affordable standby power within the reach of millions of enterprises, homes and small businesses.
