Kohler Power Systems has completed its first industrial standby diesel generator line powered by a Kohler engine. The fully-integrated Kohler product line utilizes Kohler’s Direct Injection (KDI) diesel engines and includes both Tier 3 and Tier 4 Final models ranging from 15 kW to 60 kW.

Ideal for the telecom industry, small businesses, office buildings, banks, medical institutions, as well as police and fire stations, there are nine models available within the complete industrial diesel generator range.
The six Tier 3 models in this line are designed as emergency generators, while the three Tier 4 Final models can be used for a variety of non-emergency. According to the company, the Kohler KDI diesel engines utilized in the Tier 4 models integrate an advanced design that delivers clean combustion, optimal fuel consumption, and enhanced power without the use of diesel particulate filters or SCR systems.”

The Tier 4 Final diesel engines achieve EPA and CARB compliance without a diesel particulate filter (DPF) thanks to a number of features, including Kohler’s direct injection system, cooled exhaust gas recirculation, and diesel oxygenated catalyst. A high-pressure common rail system is also integrated to deliver better atomization of fuel, improved fuel consumption, and a reduction in emission particulates.
