19 Oct What is an Anti-Condensation Heater
When it comes to Diesel generators, every part plays a vital role. To operate at maximum efficiency, there’s one vital piece that your generator relies upon you may never have thought of before. In this post, we’ll introduce you to the anti-condensation heater, explain what it does for your generator and explain why you need one from PowerMark.
What an Anti-Condensation Heater Does Explained
An anti-condensation heater, also known as a space heater, reduces the moisture present in the air around and within your generator. An anti-condensation heater is housed inside your alternator and reduces overall humidity when the alternator is not in use, but both cannot be used at the same time.
An anti-condensation heater is ideal in these scenarios:
- Coastal areas or other areas with high humidity
- When a backup generator will be inactive for an extended period of time
- Cold areas
You’ll often find anti-condensation heaters in Stamford & Mecc Alte alternators, to help increase their longevity. It’s important to note that an anti-condensation heater cannot dry out an alternator entirely.
How Anti-Condensation Heaters Work
Most anti-condensation heaters rely upon convection to generate heat. Convection requires electricity to pass through a heating element to heat the alternator. Some may have fans to distribute the heat more evenly, or use less conventional methods such as infra-red heating. However they generate heat, the space heater will keep the alternator at an adequate temperature that does not allow for condensation conditions to be met.
