Basicaly depends on the size of the unit but the minimum distance should be atleast 3feet clear from all sides But if your place has one side wind direction out doors then keep the air suction side of the engine towards it so that the cool air goes in easily It helps keeping the engine temprature under limits for long duration runnings On exoust side of the generator should be clear open bcause it takes out the burnt fuel smoke and throws the warm air of the engine and alternator

Make sure you have adequate safe space outdoors to run the generator. In order to provide proper ventilation, some generators require 3-5’ distance on all sides of the generator – check your generator manual for specifics.

What is the general specification of Genset 20kv?

Generally 20 Kva power generator can produce more power. The voltage used in this 20 kva generator is 3 phase with frequency 50 Hz. 20 kva generator engine is already very enough for use on buildings that require large electrical power or public places such as shops. According to me HARGEN provides the best high quality genset.
To fill the fuel tank to the full required 62 liters of fuel in order to use this 20 kva generator engine with more leverage.
20 kva generator engine is also issued a noise that can reach 61.7 db or can be heard up to a distance of 7 meters away from where this generator is located.

Distant needed around a woodburner stove in a fire place.

This type of outdoor fireplace is only designed for outdoor use. If you are thinking of using it indoors, I would not suggest it. The exhaust flume if not made to be used on the inside of a house. It should only be used outdoors with ample space around it to avoid touching patio furniture, grills, etc.

Coleman model 16 space heater

there are 2 knobs, the generator knob is the smaller of the two

there is a cap with knurles around the edge and a screw in the center, take that off and add coleman fuel.

this cap may leak air because the gaskets get old and crack- so pump it up and put some soapy water on it and see if you get bubbles

okay THIS IS IMPORTANT!!!!!!!! if you have never fired one of these up before~~~~~ dont do it in your kitchen-- you will burn your house down--- fire it up outside first to see how it works!
