Standard - All MTU sets feature an engine/alternator
monoblock unit and engine-driven pusher fan/radiator assembly
installed on a welded steel baseframe, complete with heavy-duty,
compressed-rubber anti-vibration mountings.
Engine - The MTU
range comprises water-cooled, direct injection diesel engines,
either naturally aspirated or turbocharged. Every engine is
supplied complete with replaceable element air, oil and fuel
filters, starter motor, fuel lift pump and electronic engine
management speed governing as standard.
Starting - All
MTU models have electric starting and include a heavy-duty
dry-charged battery pack, battery-charging system, battery
condition indicator and key switch module.
Cooling - All MTU
engines are water-cooled and are fitted with a heavy-duty
tropicalised radiator suitable for operation up to 40șC ambient
temperatures. Consult factory for higher ambient options.
Alternator - The
engine is close-coupled through flange adaptor mating surfaces
to a brushless, self-exciting and self-regulating drip-proof
alternator. Torsional vibration in this monoblock unit is
minimised by a flexible disc coupling between the engine
flywheel and the rotor. Each alternator is built in accordance
with BS5000 and screen-protected with Class 'H' insulation.
Under full load, regulation is maintained within the limits of
at least ±1.5%.
Control Panel - A
fully instrumented output panel, manufactured from powder coated
sheet-steel, is set-mounted and isolated from vibration. For
certain applications, remote-fixing output panels are available.
Fuel Tank - Sets
do not have a daily-service fuel tank. For all sizes we can
supply free-standing bulk fuel storage tanks.
MTU generating sets are sprayed overall in
Brilliant blue gloss enamel paint, to a heavy industrial
specification, incorporating rust-inhibitors to guarantee a
superior and long-lasting finish.
The baseframe is finished in Black gloss to provide a functional
and attractive two-tone colour scheme.
