What should you consider when purchasing a second-hand generator set?
When purchasing a second-hand generator set, it is advisable to specify as precisely as possible the main expectations of the machine. The factor of key importance for the purchase of a generator set is the way in which the genset will be used. This means the type of devices whose operation it is ultimately expected to guarantee – the power output of the used genset should match the demand from the loads to be powered by it. It is worth remembering that before choosing a genset you should check whether the loads to be powered by the genset are single- or three-phase devices. If a second-hand genset is to be used solely for supplying power to single-phase loads, a single-phase genset should be selected. In a situation where a genset is to supply power to both single- and three-phase equipment, a generator set with both single- and three-phase sockets should be chosen. The type of loads is also of significant importance for correct selection of the required power output of the genset.
The choice of the genset needs also to be adapted to the way in which the equipment will be stored – here the key factor is the location where the genset is to be situated. The interior where the genset will be operated must meet all the applicable standards and requirements. When deciding to purchase a used generator set, you need to pay attention to its technical condition and make sure that it is capable of further operation. If you use the services provided by Eneria, you may be certain that you get a thoroughly inspected generator set in good working order. With many years of experience in the area of energy security, we can guarantee a high quality of services focused on satisfaction of your needs.
When making a decision to purchase a second-hand generator set, it is worth paying attention also to the level of noise generated during operation, particularly if the genset is to be situated in or near a building. In addition, it is advisable in many cases that the genset features an automatic voltage regulator (AVR). That is a must if loads that are susceptible to current variability are to be safely supplied from the genset. When choosing a used generator set, you should also think on the type of fuel to be used, as it will translate into future equipment operation costs.
What are the prices of used generator sets?
When contemplating the purchase of a second-hand generator set, you need to remember that determining its optimum power output is important not only for efficient operation of the equipment to be supplied by the genset, but also for the price to be paid for the genset itself. A genset with excessive power output that does not suit your individual needs may mean a higher expense than a generator set whose power output actually fits your needs. The price of a second-hand generator set is shaped also by the fuel tank capacity and by the time for which it was used by the previous owner.
