Caterpillar is a North American company that is one of the world's largest producers of heavy machinery and equipment geared towards construction, industrial, and agricultural use. Caterpillar produces heavy duty generator sets that are meant to meet the operational needs of large factories and other industrial facilities. They produce a line of both gas and diesel powered generator sets, and the 3512 TA Caterpillar diesel engine is the power source for the SR5 generator.

3512 TA Engine Specifications

The 3512 TA Caterpillar engine is the muscle behind the extremely powerful Cat SR5 generator set. The engine has a four-stroke cycle and features four cylinders. This diesel powered engine is water-cooled. The engine's displacement is 51.80 litres. The fuel system is an electronically controlled direct injection system that ensures the proper amount of fuel and oil are distributed to the cylinders at precisely the right time.

Indicators and Regulators

The 3512 TA engine features a digital indicator that shows the engine's current RPM levels, operating hours, coolant temperature and DC voltage. The indicator lights will flash when oil-pressure is low, coolant is low, if there is over speed or if there is a failure to start. This engine lubrication system holds up to 81 gallons and uses a sump refill. The Woodward governor regulates the engine's RPM levels to ensure that it does not over or under work itself.

Additional Information

The Caterpillar 3512 TA diesel engine has a dry exhaust manifold system. The elbows and flanges of this exhaust manifold system are made of stainless steel to ensure durability. This engine is equipped with mufflers and silencers to ensure a quieter work space. The entire SR5 generator set, with the 3512 engine included, is 206.18 inches long, 77.75 inches wide and stands 144.61 inches tall. The weight of this entire generator set is 11480 Kilogram.
