Section II. EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION AND DATA
The winterization kit is designed to be mounted in generator sets where extreme cold temperatures are anticipated. The kit
consists of a coolant heater, which allows the generator set to operate to -50F (-45.6C). The coolant heater circulates the
coolant from the generator set through the heater pump and heats the coolant by the heater and returns it back through the
radiator of the generator. Then, continues the cycle until the temperature reaches 176F. The heater then goes into low heat.
If the coolant temperature drops to 158F, then the heater will switch to high heat mode.
EQUIPMENT CHARACTERISTICS, CAPABILITIES, AND FEATURES.
1-10.1 Characteristics. The Winterization Kit consists of a coolant heater, which allows the generator set to operate
up to -50F (-45.6C).
1-10.1.2 Capabilities and Features. The heater burns fuel from the generator fuel tank to heat the coolant, which is
pumped through the engine block. The kit consists of a heater and coolant pump, a control unit, an ON-OFF switch, a fuel
pump and line, coolant circulating lines, a wiring harness and mounting hardware to ensure operation to -50F (-45.6C).
LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS.
