Presenting generator options from top suppliers to power your customers’ jobsites
Tough and stable power
Atlas Copco Power Technique features the new QAS 200 generator. The generator features a robust John Deere 6068 Tier 4 Final diesel engine, delivering 200 kVA/160 kW and is dual-frequency-capable. An AREP alternator excitation system offers quick and easy motor starting capabilities. Even in tough applications and weather, the operator has stable power in less than six seconds. Both generators are equipped with a 335-gallon fuel tank that runs for 28 hours at 100 percent load or 37 hours at 75 percent load. The QAS generators have a heavy-duty weatherproof and corrosion-resistant canopy. This includes an integrated door sealing system ensuring water tightness and improved sound attenuation. The standard variable speed fan provides lower noise emission, reduced fuel consumption and better performance in cold environments. Available in either a skid mount or trailer mounted configuration, the QAS 150 and QAS 200 are designed for safe and easy movement. The QAS line requires less than two hours of service for every 500-hour service interval. Wire routing in QAS cubicles is neat, clean, service-friendly and allows for easy access through large access doors and panels. An environmentally friendly spillage-free frame is standard. To prolong the life of the generator, these models also feature triple-stage air filtration with a safety cartridge and dual-stage fuel filtration. As an available option, these generators can be linked in parallel with AC’s Power Management System parallel controller. The PMS controller manages the quantity of generators running in parallel with load demand, starting and stopping units in line with increases or decreases in load. This makes the units more fuel-efficient and expands the life of the generator.
Two input voltage options
Exair’s new Gen4 four-outlet selectable voltage power supply allows you to choose input voltages of 115V or 230V AC. Four five-kV stainless steel output connectors can energize four static eliminators at the same time. Applications using up to four Gen4 Super Ion air knives, Ion air guns, Ion air cannons, ionizing bars or any other Exair Gen4 static eliminator product can be connected to one power supply. Like all Exair Gen4 products, these four outlet power supplies are UL component recognized, CE and RoHS compliant.
They also feature an electromagnetically shielded modular power supply cable which eases routing and connections. An integrated fuse on the primary protects against voltage spikes. The lighted power switch indicates operation and is field-replaceable. The Gen4 four-outlet power supply is housed in a durable metal enclosure (six by four by 4.4 inches) that is ideal for rugged, industrial environments. Gen4 static eliminators having a bayonet-style connector can be inserted into the power supply where the electrical connection is made deep inside to prevent a shock hazard. Gen4 static eliminator products using this power supply are all shockless and have armoured high voltage cables which resist abrasion and cuts.
Canadians can have access to portable power generation equipment they can legally transport and operate in any Canadian province and in the U.S. Doosan Portable Power is releasing seven generator models outputting from 70 kVA to 400 kVA that meet all applicable safety and environmental regulations in Canada. This portable generator is compliant with fueling and venting requirements for operation in Ontario, as prescribed by B138.1-17/B138.2-17. In addition to meeting regulatory standards, the new Canada-ready Doosan Portable Power generators have optional features designed for optimal performance in Canada. The Doosan-exclusive Quad Voltage control allows operators to choose 120/240V single phase, 208V/240V three-phase, 480V three-phase or 600V three-phase voltage output with the simple flip of a switch. The cold weather package option includes a block heater, battery charger and crankcase heaters for better cold starts and performance in cold weather. The Intelligent Load Management System improves machine performance and decreases potential downtime associated with Tier 4-compliant mobile generators in cold weather, light load and fluctuating demand applications. The emergency air shutoff valve option is a safety feature for emergency situations involving runaway engine conditions. This feature is critical in oil and gas operations. In addition to complying with B138.1-17/B138.2-17B138, the new Doosan Portable Power generators are certified to meet Canadian Standards Authority rule 22.2 No 14 and Transport Canada rule CGSB-43.146/UN31A.
Wacker Neuson’s G70 mobile generator, powered by a Tier 4 Final Kohler engine, is designed to withstand the rigours of repeated transport and continuous load. The compact, sound-attenuated model provides single and three-phase power for construction, commercial, industrial and special applications where quiet power is needed. The 104 horsepower Kohler KDI3404 engine was chosen by Wacker Neuson because it is tailored for generator applications. It features selective catalytic reduction and diesel oxidation catalyst to eliminate the diesel particulate filter and regeneration. Low cost of ownership and longer uptime is a result of service efficiency, better fluid economy and long service intervals. Plus, the Kohler engine comes with a four year, 4,000-hour transferable warranty. Along with the Kohler engine, Wacker Neuson engineers have incorporated a Mecc Alte alternator and Deep Sea controller that provide reliable performance under harsh conditions. The G70 generator produces standby output of 63 kW/79 kVA and prime output of 58 kW/72 kVA. It is efficiently packaged in a medium cabinet for less weight on a single axle trailer. The separate excitation winding and automatic voltage regulation provides superior motor starting and enhanced ability to run non-linear loads. Standard features include a variable speed fan providing improved cold weather performance, fuel saving and noise reduction. The fully enclosed body design reduces sound emissions and prevents water ingress during operation. Single-side access service point makes daily maintenance quick and simple. A variety of options are available for the G70 including level load logic which is an effective and economical solution to wet stacking and generator reliability in light load conditions. The L3 is automatically activated when it senses a less than 30 percent load and low coolant temperature. The system improves cold weather performance and is safe for use in oil and gas sites, protecting your capital investment and reducing repair and maintenance costs. Other options include camlocks, integral 600V position on voltage selector, fuel quick connect, block and fuel filter heaters, oil drain evacuation system and battery charger and disconnect. The G70 is just one of a full line of mobile generators from Wacker Neuson ranging from 25 kVA to 320 kVA and all powered by Tier 4 final engines. All models offer the durability and reliability rental centre operators and users depend on to meet serious power needs.
