Wherever there is a machine, there is noise, which is inevitable. Just like our vocal cords when we scream and shout. The difference is that you cannot shield our voice box, while a diesel generator can.
With stringent government noise abatement policies as laid down by the central pollution control board (CBCP), it has become important for the DG set manufacturers to adopt proper noise control measures. One such popular technique that comes inbuilt from the factories is the use of acoustic panels or acoustic enclosures, that reduce the sound. Did you know that sound is measured in decibels (dB)?
When operational, a diesel generator emits two variants of noise, namely:
1. Mechanical noise can arise from the vibration as the fan rotates at high speeds. Usually mild vibrations are normal and shouldn’t be a problem. Any unusual or sudden change in the sound observed should be immediately brought to the attention of the DG service centre.
2. Noise from the combustion is mainly due to the exhaust and the alternator.
An acoustic enclosure is made of mild steel, where the interiors are insulated well with fireproof material.
People often get panicky when it comes to the service of their diesel generator, primarily because of its complexity, unlike our two-wheelers where we manage to rectify the problem or at least pinpoint the possible cause.
Only a well qualified and experienced service engineer would be able to tell you after a thorough inspection. Are you thinking where to find the best service centre for your diesel generator in Hyderabad?
