Trinity’s Expertise Comes to the Aid of a High-Stress High-Rise Outage
Few electrical outages pose the urgency faced when a high-rise residential tower goes dark.

The integrated systems of a generator are very much like our brain. Our consciousness is only a small representation of all that our brain controls. Much of the real work is performed on the unconscious level. Heart rate, internal temperature, hormone regulation, and circadian rhythm all happen without us knowing. The integrated systems of a generator can be given this same label. They’re necessary for the overall function of the generator an... read more >

And yet no one knows that the skin of our body is actually our largest organ. It goes largely ignored and underappreciated. The same could be said of the internal thermal regulatory process of a diesel generator engine - the coolant.
Most of us have been around motors our... read more >

Whatever combustion impurities exist inside the walls of the engine, none will avoid detection in the oil pan. An inspection of the oil during a routine change will inform the maintenance technician whether that combustion is complete or suffering from serious problems.
