Floor space needed:
For the product - roughly 1500 mm x 1500 mm of solid,
level floor, adjacent to an outside wall with exhaust duct.
For refuelling and maintenance access - an additional
500 mm to the rear and 1000 mm each side of the
230 VAC, 50 Hz a.c. single-phase 17 A
220 VAC, 60 Hz a.c. phase-phase 17 A
Water supply and drain:
At least 18 litres per minute, assuming a cold water supply
at less than 10°C
Exhaust duct system:
At least 100 mm diameter heat-resistant material, vented
directly to atmosphere.
Note: your local conditions affect how you direct your
exhaust to atmosphere, so TecQuipment does not
supply a complete exhaust system.
*The GT185 includes a length of metal flexible hose to
help with your exhaust.
Oil breather vent:
19 mm diameter, direct to atmosphere
Roughly 4000 m3/h assuming standard 20°C room
Dry and well-ventilated engine test laboratories
Storage temperature range:
–25ºC to +55ºC (when packed for transport)
Operating temperature range:
+5ºC to +35ºC
Note: the flash point of kerosene can be as low as
37°C, so keep your working environment below 35°C.
Operating relative humidity range:
30% to 95% (non-condensing)
This equipment emits sound levels greater than 90 dB(A)
