Application: Emergency Diesel Generator (EDG)

Related Industry: Nuclear

Lube Oil Heater: To protect the engine during startup the thermostatically controlled immersion heater is placed either in the lube oil sump or in a bypass tank. The heater maintains the lubricating oil at or near the generator’s normal operating temperature.

 

Water Jacket Heater: To protect the engine during startup the thermostatically controlled immersion heater is mounted in the standpipe or separate heating tank.  When the engine is in standby mode, the heater is energized. The heated coolant flows through the engine warming the cylinders, cylinder heads, and other water-cooled engine components to minimize the high stress and increased wear when the engine is cold.
