However, with PowerMark’s collection of Diesel generator Water Jacket Heater from renowned brands in the industry, cold-related startup issues could be a thing of the past. Learn how our water jacket heaters can help your Diesel generator this winter in this article!

What Is The Purpose Of A Water Jacket Heater?

Also known as an Engine Pre-heater and a Jacket Water Heater, the purpose of the water jacket heater is to keep the Diesel engine at the right temperature to start, regardless of outside conditions. It ensures your generator is sitting at the ideal temperature to start up and then continue to operate effectively, without relying just on the glowplug to get the Diesel ready. Consider it almost like a blanket or radiator (the household type) for your Diesel generator. It ensures the whole generator is warmed up enough to provide your power.

Typically, a water jacket is the casing formed around the cylinder head and the cylinder block, with an external heating device. The warm water is pumped at a precise temperature to ensure your Diesel generator can start up no matter how cold it gets. Most Diesel generator water jacket heaters aim to heat this area to around 43 degrees Celsius. This is the ideal temperature for a quick and efficient start-up in cold conditions. This temperature is typically controlled by a thermometer
