Energy can neither be created nor destroyed; it can only be transferred from one form to another. This is what law of conservation of energy says and this is how DG set works. Diesel Generator converts mechanical combustion of diesel fuel into electrical energy and distributes them through electric wires. Diesel Generators are generally used an alternate source of electricity when the power system breaks down or fails due to machinery failure. Its maximum uses are found in manufacturing units, real estate complexes, emergency units and areas where electricity has maximum importance.
A DG set comprises of an engine, a generator, control units, circuit breakers and water heating system. It is obvious that these units will have deposits of corrosive and scaling items, deposits of dirt and contaminants which are bound to give setbacks to the working of Diesel Generator. There are some DG set chemicals that can be used for smooth and effective working of the system. Engine Care Chemicals, Cooling Tower Chemicals, Tank Cleaning Chemicals are some of the them which can help in preventing undesirable problems up to an extent.
