03/23/2015 | Industrial Natural Gas Generators: Benefits and Advantages
Traditionally, industrial settings called for the use of high-power diesel generators to provide backup power and other power requirements. However, with more developments being brought over into making gas-powered generators more competitive, industrial natural gas generators are now fast catching up with the popularity enjoyed by their diesel counterparts.
Natural gas generators are becoming a choice alternative to diesel generators not only because of the cleaner energy they burn. Newer models are now equipped with quieter engines that are conducive to promoting productivity and creating comfortable work conditions in factories. Aside from this, they also offer the following advantages:
No Pungent Odors
An added benefit to using natural gas is that, unlike diesel, it does not produce any foul or pungent odors, thus making work environments more favorable. It's also a known fact that prolonged exposure to diesel exhaust can be harmful to the body and cause several health complications such as cough, headaches, lightheadedness, and nausea among others.
Fire Proof Enclosures
A common concern about the use of industrial natural gas generators has to do with their fire safety. In the event the supply lines are destroyed by a natural disaster such as an earthquake, gas-powered generators pose a serious fire hazard since natural gas is extremely explosive. Fortunately, natural gas generators today come with state-of-the-art fireproof enclosures that can also withstand harsh environmental conditions. Some of the choices for enclosures include stainless steel, carbon steel, and polycarbon to name a few.
No Spill Risk
The environmental impact of generators isn't just a mere afterthought, but is one of the main driving points into making generators safer, cleaner, and more powerful. Gas-powered generators are touted and proven to be more environmentally friendly with no spill risk. Hence, there's no reason to worry about soil or water contamination.
