WASTE TO ENERGY


AD operators can increase their engine efficiency with some simple steps


company can change the flow body as required, ensuring the perfect fuel mix every time.


USE AN IGNITION CONTROLLER WITH PULSE TECHNOLOGY If your engine shudders during the ignition phase, replacing the controller with one using pulse technology will deliver more reliable ignition and prolong the life of your equipment. Gen-C supplies Motortech ignition controllers, the only type that uses pulse technology. Tis creates thousands of tiny pulses, the intensity and duration of which can be programmed according to the plant’s demands, and which will remain the same throughout the lifetime of the ignition controller.


SWITCH TO A SMART KNOCKING CONTROL SYSTEM A ‘knocking’ sound usually signals that the gas is igniting too early. A sophisticated, intelligent knocking control system can detect this and automatically alter the ignition timing point. If knocking still


occurs, it will then reduce the load of the engine or even shut it down, preventing catastrophic engine failure.


SPECIFY A HIGH TEMPERATURE SPEED CONTROL Te throttle actuator responsible for speed control is usually located close to the intercooler; a part of the engine that is particularly hot. Proximity to a heat source can cause this component to deteriorate more rapidly, often leading to poor performance or failure. To counteract this, Gen-C supplies specialist high-temperature throttle actuators, which help to prolong operational life. Tey also comprise an integrated throttle body that contains fewer moving parts by being directly connected to the throttle. Not only does this make for more accurate control of speed, it also incurs less wear and tear.


TAKE PRE-EMPTIVE ACTION Every day that an AD plant isn’t generating electricity is a day it’s losing money, so don’t wait for your engine to fail before taking

action. By scheduling an engine upgrade to coincide with any planned maintenance shutdown, operators can benefit from increased engine availability, more reliable performance, longer-lasting components and greater electrical output.
