Big, But Quiet, Generators
The QAS 600 generator from Atlas Copco (Commerce City, CO) is the largest in the range, rated at 575 kVA at 60 Hz and powered by a Volvo TAD 1641 GE diesel engine coupled to a 239-gallon standard fuel tank. The QAS 600 is housed in zinc-plated steel with a powder coat finish, which provides protection against corrosion. It operates at 77 dB at 60 Hz, making it ideal for operation in noise-sensitive areas. Benefits of the QAS 600 include:
- An integrated lifting structure that includes forklift slots to help facility safe handling.
- A dedicated compartment for the electrical system, making it safe to access even during operation, and helping to reduce the vibration and temperature impact on the sensitive electrical components.
- An industrial Type B-curve four-pole main circuit breaker to safeguard the alternator against external short circuits.
- A dual-stage fuel filter with integrated water separator and a heavy-duty dual-stage air filtration system to ensure longer service intervals.
