The casing for the generator is an insulated, noise-insulating metal structure in which the generator and equipment to improve its operation are installed.
The protective casing for a stationary generator is an important attribute for extending the life of the generator and significantly reducing noise during generator operation.
Electricity generators are widely used as an alternative source of energy. They are easy to operate, have a long service life and high productivity, but there is an important drawback – the strong noise that occurs when the generator is working.
Depending on the type and model of the generator, the noise level can reach 100 dB, which is equal to the noise of a high-speed train, an orchestra. Working next to such a source of noise is extremely difficult and dangerous for health. The permissible noise level during long-term stay is 55 dB, which is 2 times lower than the operation of the generator.
Studies have shown that when working next to a generator with a noise level of 96 dB, after 20 years, more than 34% of personnel have diseases that are related to hearing loss.
Level of comfortable and uncomfortable noise:
30-40 dB is a comfortable level of noise, which can be compared to the rustling of leaves
40 dB – the noise of office equipment and electrical appliances
50 dB is a quiet conversation between two people.
55 dB is the level of painful noise irritation.
90 dB is the noise of city transport
100-110 dB – noise in headphones and volume level at a rock concert.
Two methods of combating noise will be distinguished:
If it is not possible to install the generator in a separate room, then you can install the generator and equipment in a special container. This method is suitable for companies because it is a cost-effective way to protect the generator and equipment. Containers perform several functions, the main ones are:
For the private sector and small companies, a convenient and budget option is to install a generator in a generator casing.
The following can be installed in the protective cover for the generator:
The hood for the generator or the casing for the generator performs the following main functions:
Completeness of the casing for the generator depends on the requirements and needs of the customer, below is a list of the main components of the complete set:
Thanks to the use of a cover for the generator, the noise level can be reduced to an indicator of 40 dB.
The design of the casing is collapsible and, if necessary, it can be folded for ease of transportation. However, in order to avoid difficulties in installation, customers usually choose an assembled structure – ready for installation of the generator.
The company “Altkon” has been manufacturing casings and containers for more than 6 years, and has its own developed design solutions and a design bureau. Depending on the characteristics of the generator, the dimensions and filling of the casing will be selected and adapted to your order.
The best generator cover is a custom-made generator cover. Such a casing will preserve the characteristics of your generator as good as possible and will reduce the defects in its operation.
The country of manufacture is Ukraine.
