Hi kenmb, hence why we went bigger and a bit newer genset for this year, 200kw vs the 125kw. The 200 has electronic fuel control and runs at a steady 60Hz vs the 125kw which was all over the map even after opening up the pump.......
11 drying bins with 10hp 3ph (5 added this year along with the genset and distribution)
4 drying bins with 7.5hp 3ph
4 storage bins 10hp 3ph
3 storage bin 10hp single phase, to be upgraded as they are an ugly amp draw if not all running to balance the load.
With all fans running 525 amps load.
Cannot stress enough if you are looking at a genset go a bit bigger than what you require as we are already looking at 5 more bins for next year and another boiler.
Also as a note as voltage goes up, amperage comes down. 10hp3ph last year at 218volts were drawing 26-27 amps, this year at 240 volts a comfortable 22-23 amps and no temperature shut downs.
