FTG Technical Tuesday – Minimum Generator Set Load/Capacity

Minimum generator set load/capacity: Running a generator set under light load can lead to engine damage, reducing reliability and cause “Wet Stacking”. FTG Equipment does not recommend running generator sets at less than 30-40 percent of rated load. Load banks should supplement the regular loads when loading falls below the recommended value. For technical help call (855) 303-7900 or email nick@ftgequipment.com.

FTG Technical Tuesday – On a generator, what is the difference between Prime kW and Standby kW?

Prime Power Rating – is the rating in kW that the generator can continuously run for without issue. Standby Power Rating – is the rating in kW that the generator can handle in a short term overload capacity, normally at 10% above Prime Power.

FTG is the exclusive distributor in the US for TecnoGen Generators which are considered Prime Power Generators. Have a technical question? Call (855) 303-7900 or email nick@ftgequipment.com

FTG Technical Tuesday – What size air compressor do you need?

What size air compressor do you need? As air pressure is increased, cfm’s decrease. At 100 psi, our D185T4F is at maximum CFM (185). As you turn up the pressure, the cfm’s will decrease. At 110 psi, cfm will decrease to approximately 169. At 120 psi, cfm will decrease to approximately 153. Also, you must take into consideration friction loss on your air hose. Using 50’ of ¾” air hose @100psi, your air pressure drop is approximately 22 psi. At 100’ the drop is approximately 44 psi. You must keep these numbers in mind when using extended hose lengths. Depending on the lengths you may have to switch to a larger compressor to maintain proper pressure at the tool.

If you’re still unsure, feel free to call (855) 303-7900 for help or email nick@ftgequipment.com.
