Nowadays, there is a lot of generator on the market powered by different fuel, while diesel generator or natural gas generator ( LPG/Propane Generator ) won a lot of focus. Thus we’d make below comparison chart to help customer make right decision:
|Item||Cummins 6BTAA5.9-G2 Diesel Generator||Cummins 6BTAA5.9-G2 Natural Gas Generator|
|Advantage||1.Lower Maintenance Cost.advantage over gas engines is that diesel engines do not require spark plugs or wires; this helps in reducing maintenance costs.|
2.Longer life.The lifespan of a gas engine is much shorter than that of a diesel engine.
3.More Safe.being less flammable than other fuel sources, diesel generators also score high on the safety front.
|1.More Cleaner.less emissions of sulfur, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide (a greenhouse gas) are considerably lower compare with oil and coal,without bad smell.|
2.Cheaper Fuel.Natural gas price is as lower as 20%-50% of diesel.
3.More Stable.Refuel automatic and suitable for continuously running.
|Disadvantage||1.Pollution :given the recent trend of|
environmental awareness, diesel is also considered to be a major pollutant in certain areas.
2.Higher fuel cost than natural gas.
|1.natural gas is extremely explosive and can be a serious fire hazard should the pipeline burst,some one worry about this issue.With our exclusive design of back fire resistance and anti explosion valve, it is 100% safe to use.|
2.A bit expensive than diesel generator.
|Fuel||0# diesel||97% CH4 Pipeline natural gas|
|Major Overhaul||12000-15000 hours||18000-24000 hours|
From above comparision between diesel generator and gas generator, we get two combined equations :
Suppose X= running hours of diesel generator Y= running hours of natural gas generator
1st Combined Equation (based on same working hours )
We get answer X > 496.5 , from which we know that if you requires this generator running more than 496.5hours, you’b better buy a natural gas generator, otherwise a diesel generator is enough.
2nd Combined Equation (based on total electricity produced )
We get answer X > 663.5 ( total electricity produced 71658 ) from which we know that if you requires total output electricity more than 71658KW.H, you’d better choose a natural gas generator, otherwise you can buy a diesel generator.
Remarks: Above comparison for reference only , due to different fuel price in different areas or countries. Please contact us at : [email protected] or advise your local fuel cost, gas content and project requirements etc for exact cost analysis.
