Power generation is often a huge part of earthmoving or construction projects, particularly if there is limited access to the mains. At iseekplant, you’ll find a variety of different generator hire suppliers throughout the country in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Darwin, Perth, Adelaide and surrounding areas. Generator suppliers are available to suit your needs in regards to weather protection, power output and portability. Most generators available on the market are diesel powered, since this is the most effective and economical option if you’re away from the mains access. It’s also a good idea to have a generator on site for the purpose of backing up power, ensuring that you can meet project deadlines.
A generator has an engine which is proportional to the output of electricity it can supply. Power generators can operate on propane, gas or diesel. Smaller generators will generally operate using gasoline, while larger generators will typically use diesel. Generator hire suppliers will generally supply engines that are either overhead valve engines or non-overhead valve engines. Those with overhead valves position the exhaust and intake valves in the cylinder head of the engine instead of mounting them on the engine block. This provides a more durable and compact engine design with lower emission levels and noise during operation.
In its simplest form, generators move a magnet close to a wire, creating a steady flow of electrons. A tight copper coil is usually wrapped around the iron core in the generator, which rotates extremely quickly inside a powerful magnet. Diesel engines burn fuel to create the motion of the generator using electromagnets to convert the motion into electricity. Once the engine has started and the crankshaft is turned, the central axle inside the generator chamber spins, containing the electromagnets and producing an electrical current.
Our power generator companies have generator options available from single phase to triple phase. Single phase generators range from 7 to 30KVA which is ideal for low level uses of energy and lighting. Triple phase generators are more economical for heavy duty use and each conductor will reach its peak sequentially, allowing the generator to self-start and achieve much higher transmission rates. No matter if your next project is located in a remote location or you can't afford any downtime, you'll find the best petrol generator and diesel generator hire options on iseekplant today.
