A common misconception is that diesel is a more expensive type of fuel when compared to petrol, however, that is not necessarily the case where generators are concerned. Diesel fuel is still more expensive than petrol, however, diesel generators tend to be more fuel efficient than petrol generators.
However, petrol generators are a better option where infrequent or temporary use is concerned. This may be true for a multitude of reasons as petrol generators are less expensive and available in a variety ore models and price ranges than diesel generators.
Petrol generators are also known to run more quietly, and they produce significantly less harmful carbon dioxide fumes than diesel generators.
These characteristics and differences can be determining factors when considering a generator as an intermittent-use back-up power option. Having a generator that is quieter and that produces less fumes can make using a generator a more pleasant experience.
For those who use petrol generators temporarily, intermittently, or for low-load applications would not need the plethora of benefits that a diesel generator often offers.
Petrol generators are synonymous with preparedness for disasters as well as emergency use during power outages.
There are times that the power goes out for unexpected reasons and in having a back-up petrol generator, individuals and businesses can ensure that their daily routine can proceed without missing a beat.
Where grid power reliability is concerned, commercial businesses have a significant amount at stake. A few hours of downed equipment and machinery may translate to millions in missed orders and customers that are lost.
By having a standby petrol generator, businesses can ensure that they have an uninterrupted power supply. Industries such as healthcare are mandated and expected to have an uninterrupted supply, which can easily be ensured by making use of petrol generators.
Petrol generators can also be used in recreational areas such as camping, amidst other activities.
A continuous source of power is not always guaranteed on construction sites, where equipment may be needed in remote areas. With the use of petrol generators, construction and operations can continue efficiently.
As with construction sites, mining environments also have areas where generators are crucial for operations. A substantial amount of the electricity used on mines comes from power generation due to mines being located off the grid.
Petrol generators are crucial in agriculture and farming operations in addition to being important as portable power when there are operations in hard-to-reach locations that are not on the grid.
Road maintenance crews are a perfect example of people who must work at night to minimise inconvenience to drivers, especially along highways, national roads, and freeways.
This involves determining the realistic requirement for daily use of the generator. This is done by taking the equipment that will be used the most and adding their requirements together.
When purchasing a petrol generator, it is imperative that the overall power output of the engine be considered along with the build quality. If the generator will be used regularly, it is necessary to choose a generator that will be able to perform the task of working constantly.
This does not entail the fuel tank size but involves determining the maximum running time of the generator to obtain a realistic figure of how long the generator can run for.
It is imperative to have a generator with a powerful engine and an adequate running time, but it is also important to ensure that it has the right number and type of sockets required.
The frame in which the generator is housed is a crucial factor to consider. A well-built frame can reduce vibration as well as noise, and it can protect the generator from knocks and bumps expected on professional work sites.
A generator that needs to be moved around for various applications must be one that is comfortably portable. Weight is not an issue if the generator is going to be stationary for extended periods of time.
Africa Power Equipment offers an array of petrol generators for sale which can be used for a variety of applications and uses.
Some of the most popular brands and manufactures include:
These generators are divided into a variety of categories depending on the type of petrol generator. In addition, the Kilovolt-amps range from 0.9kVA to 12kVA.
