Diesel Technology Training in Blairsville
Posted Thursday, Mar 31, 2011 by
Diesel engines are still the most powerful and efficient internal combustion engines in the world, providing power for an immense and far-reaching range of applications. Just take a look around! You’ll see diesel technology hard at work every day across the American landscape.
Diesel engines move a large percentage of the nation’s freight tonnage. Nearly all the trucks you see on the highway, locomotives pulling freight cars, and commercial marine vessels you’ll find on the open seas are powered by mighty diesel engines. Diesel also plays an immense role in transporting people. The majority of city transit buses across the nation are powered by diesel engines.
While most people may not have an opportunity or a reason to visit a farm, approximately two-thirds of the energy to run today’s farms is believed to be diesel. Construction machinery used to build roads and bridges, along with much of the technology used in the mining business employ diesel technology to keep the wheels of progress turning.
There are critical components of the nation’s infrastructure like hospitals, airports, water treatment and communication systems scattered across the country that rely on back-up generators powered by diesel. Within 10 seconds of a power failure, a diesel generator can kick on and provide back-up electrical power.
