Inverters vs. Generators


There are several applications for generating electricity in a portable setting. Work, recreation and emergency are the main reasons for needing portable power. Many people do not know that in addition to the typical generators, there are also inverters. This blog will explain the main differences and will hopefully help in picking the correct one.

Generators are typically noisy and have one mode the entire time they are running after initial start up. One can find a decent generator for a reasonable price. Inverters electronically throttles the motor up and down to meet the demand of the appliance/tool it is running. This results in improved performance of the appliance/tool, better fuel economy for the inverter and are less noisy than their generator cousins.

Having said all that, inverters come at a cost. Typically, they are more expensive than a generator, but in the long run, they can be used for more purposes without the risk of damaging the equipment they are running. Yes, that’s right. Generators can damage the equipment they are providing power to. Generators have a very harsh sign wave (picture low lows and high highs). That extreme fluctuation can damage appliances and especially electronics like computers and cell phones over time and reduce the life of them significantly. Inverters have a smaller sign wave which means after initial start up, the power flow is more evenly distributed and results in a smoother power stream.

Generators are fine for running pumps, freezers and power tools for example. Beyond that, anything else such as refrigerators, TV’s, computers, cell phones, medical devices, etc. an invertor is the better choice.

Cleartreat Bentonite Clay 50 Gallon Treatment System

Cleartreat is a type of bentonite clay that acts as a binding agent for wash and process water. When added to the water and agitated, it automatically binds to heavy metals, paint, oils, greases, etc. and creates what’s known as a “flock”. This flock is lighter than water, so it will eventually rise to the top of the container once agitation ceases, leaving clear water that can then be either reused or disposed of legally down a sanitary sewer drain.

The SATS-50 system is a 50 gallon treatment system that is so easy to use, you simply add the pre-measured clay into the process water container, push the start button and walk away. Once the reaction has taken place, open the ball valves to release the water into the filter bags, thus separating the flock from the water. That water can then be reused or disposed of down a sanitary sewer drain.

CA sues Honda over small engine emissions

Honda has agreed to pay $6.9 million dollars after it failed to meet certain emissions regulations on small engines.

California standard emissions were recently re-assessed and determined that Honda was not meeting the minimum requirements to fall into compliance. Specifically, Honda small engines such as lawn mowers, pressure washers and generators are the main culprits. According to the CA regulations, small engines can release as much CO2 as driving 300 miles if they are run for just one hour.

Honda’s small engines did not pass tests that measured how much fuel would evaporate from the powered-off engines in a 24 hour period. In more simple terms, more fuel evaporated from some of Honda’s small engines than is permitted in California.
