Air intake in any engine is critical. At Northern Lights, we have engineered some significant improvements into the way that a normal diesel engine breathes. The result is a more easily maintained and significantly quieter engine when compared to our competition.
The air filter in a Northern Lights marine diesel generator is unique in that it is a foam filter. This filter can be easily cleaned, serviced and put back in use again. This reduces theneed for frequent replacement filters and simplifies the maintenance of your engine. We also seal the air filter inside a special housing that contains a tuned intake tube. This quarter wave intake tuning arrangement cancels out almost all of the induction noise which accounts for about 50% of the generator’s noise so that makes the generator quite bit quieter.
