The Cummins KTA38 series has been developed through the years to keep in line with the forever growing demands in the power generation industry. The engine produces high performance power in the most extreme climates. It has an inbuilt step timing control system which makes sure optimum engine timing takes place at all combinations of load at ambient temperature.
The KTA38-G5 is a 12 cylinder, 50 Hz, turbocharged and after cooled engine which is currently manufactured in India. The after cooler makes for more efficient combustion and reduces interneal stresses leading to a longer life time.
The engine has a total displacement of 37.8L, it requires 140L of oil and 218.5L of coolant. The engine therefore produces 1180 horsepower (880 kWm) at 1500 RPM.
This Cummins Diesel Engine has dimensions of 3172mm length, 1752mm width, 2004mm height and has a dry weight of 4990 kg. The dimensions of the bore and stroke are both 159mm.
This engine can be paired with an alternator to make a powerful generator set. The generator could be used in a wide range of industries for power generation and would work effectively in the harshest of weather conditions. To increase the power output the generator could also be placed in sync with another generator set of the same type which would lead to doubling the power output.
Cummins also offer a high level of reliable technical support and after sales service with all their products. This support is delivered via their professional global network to make sure your engine is always performing at its optimum levels.
