Hospitals must have reliable power, without it patients are at risk. But with blackouts becoming more common (the UK’s spinning reserve is reportedly down to just 1.2%) hospitals need ultra reliable back up gensets. IPU has a range of products and services that helps to improve reliability to safeguard your hospital:
A hospitals critical systems includes:
- life support systems
- monitoring systems
- sprinkler systems
But, the reliability and dependability of their back up power systems depends on:
- An ability to start after long shutdowns – eventually batteries lose their ability to hold enough charge to start the engine. IPU can help by removing the need for a battery and supplying a start system that can hold enough energy almost indefinitely.
- Having clean fuel – under normal storage conditions diesel fuel can be expected to stay in a usable condition for 6-12 months. After which it begins to suffer from contamination from three main sources: water, microbial growth and solid particulates. This can block fuel filters, damage fuel injectors and cause complete engine failure. IPU has a range of solutions that can remove fuel contamination and keep your diesel at EN 590 specifications.
- Having good lubrication – according to Noria (the industry body that promotes better lubrication practises), 80% of engine failures can be attributed to contaminated oils. IPU has real-time monitoring packages and bypass filters that can give a voice to your oil and extend it’s life by up to four times.
