About Standby Generators
Standby Generators are machines that provide backup power in the event of a power outage. They are typically used in commercial, industrial, and residential applications to provide uninterrupted electricity when the main source fails. These generators can run on natural gas or diesel fuel, depending on the needs of the user.
Types of Standby Generators
The two most common types of Standby Generators are Automatic Standby Generators and Natural Gas Backup Generators. Automatic Standby Generators are usually smaller in size and come with pre-programmed settings that make them easy to use. Natural Gas Backup Generators are larger than Automatic Standby Generators and require more maintenance but can generate more power for longer periods of time.
How Standby Generators Are Made
Standby Generator components are made from metal alloys like aluminum or stainless steel, as well as plastics and composite materials. They also include electronic controls, engines, fuel tanks, alternator systems, transfer switches, exhaust systems, vibration dampening mechanisms, and other components necessary for operation.
Industries That Use Standby Generators
Standby Generator use is widespread across many industries such as healthcare facilities, telecommunications companies, manufacturing plants, data centers and server farms. Professionals in these industries rely on standby generators to keep their operations running smoothly during outages or emergencies.
