Make exhaust pipe extension as short and straight as possible, with only one 90
degree bend if needed.
Ensure that inside diameter of exhaust pipe extension is as large or larger than
generator exhaust pipe.
c. Install a gas-tight metal pipe from exhaust pipe of generator set to outside of building.
Hot exhaust gases can ignite flammable materials. Allow room for safe
discharge of hot gases and sparks. Failure to comply can cause injury or
death to personnel.
d. Provide for harmless discharge of hot gases and sparks. Do not direct exhaust into area containing
Engine exhaust is hot. When it is required to extend exhaust pipe through
flammable material (i.e., wall), shield the extension pipe to protect
personnel from burns and prevent fire hazard. Failure to comply can cause
injury to personnel, damage to equipment, and fire.
e. Shield exhaust pipe with fireproof material at point where it passes through a flammable wall.
Wrap exhaust pipe in heat insulating material.
g. Allow space on all sides of generator set for service and maintenance. Refer to Figure 2-5 for
minimum clearance measurements.
ASSEMBLY AND PREPARATION FOR USE.

attempt to start the generator set unless it is properly grounded. Failure to
comply can cause injury or death to personnel.
