Although the Perkins 2800 range of diesel engines caters for both prime and standby generation, the engines are proving particularly popular for the standby market sector. They can deliver 514-652 kWm engine power and 591-750 kVA generator output, along with mechanically operated unit fuel injectors, electronic control and carefully matched turbocharging. And, with flexible packaging, the Perkins 2800 range will fit into whatever space you have available within your equipment.

Reliability and efficiency

The engines in our 2800 range have mechanically operated unit fuel injectors, with electronic control and carefully matched turbocharging. They give the engines excellent fuel atomisation and combustion and good fuel economy. The electronic control of the injected fuel also contributes to low emissions.

Our engines in the 2800 range give you:

•    Reliable power

•    Low oil usage

•    Low wear rates

•    High compression ratios to ensure clean, rapid starting in all conditions

Our ElectropaK 2800 range of engines is delivered to you with the radiator and air cleaner system already built in, allowing you to simply bolt the engine down, connect it up and start generating.

With exceptional power-to-weight ratios and compact size, the 2800 range engines are easy to transport and install, while providing you with excellent service access for ease of maintenance.
