What Type of Food Generator Do I Need for My Catering Van?

If you are looking for a reliable generator for your catering truck, then we recommend choosing an Inverter Generator. The inverter generator is a lightweight microprocessor that replaces the traditional version of the alternator in conventional-style generators. Inverter generators produce clean, pure power that is ideal for food vans. You get clean quality power with the peace of mind that there won’t be any spikes or surges. This means you can power the more sensitive equipment that you wouldn’t normally trust to a generator, such as laptops and mobile phone chargers or any other electrical appliances.

If you require more information or need assistance on the correct and best catering generator for your food van then be sure to contact the friendly team at Bellwood Rewinds today.

Tips to Choosing the Best Catering Generator

If you have a catering van, then the choice of generator you use to power it is a huge decision. Not only do you want a generator that is cost-effective, but you also want one which compact, quiet and built for everyday use. Realistically, you have two choices when it comes to powering a catering van: a diesel generator or a petrol / LPG generator.

There are several pros and cons to weigh up when considering buying any generator for catering vans. Predominantly, open frame generators come in petrol / LPG form, unless you’re looking to spend a sizable amount of money on a diesel equivalent.

Some of our top tips on choosing a generator include

Noise Control
There’s no good having a cheap and powerful generator if it’s so loud you can’t hear your customers, so having a low noise generator is always a big consideration. Many people simply look a generator that is “silenced” and assume this is the best option, however, this might not always be the case. Open frame petrol / LPG generators are normally louder than an enclosed diesel generator or inverter generator, however, the operation itself is more stable. Although the sound is louder, it is smoother due to the way that diesel generators compress air. Thus, a petrol generator is usually more pleasing to the ears, and even easier to talk over.
Built for everyday use
When your income relies on a constant supply of power, you need to know that your generator is built to withstand the challenges of day to day use. Many engines would simply give up after a few weeks of commercial work, which is why we always suggest buying a high-quality generator from a reputable brand such as Hyundai, Honda, BE Pressure, Evopower, Stephill, etc. Diesel generators are typically used for backup or standby purposes and are not meant to run for hours day after day. Likewise, an inverter generator has a small but very fast engine that produces power for occasional use during caravan, camping, and other leisure activities, but can burn out fast if stressed too much for too long.
Catering generator size
LPG is usually cleaner to run compared to Petrol or Diesel. Usually, it can increase the device’s run time and in some cases, it can even double the run time. Another benefit of using such a device is that spare propane is more easily found in the typical home compared to Petrol or Diesel. For example, you can connect the hired generator to the propane bottle for a barbecue. The main problem with running hired generators with LPG is that it cannot start the engine when the temperature gets too low. Still, in this situation, you can have the engine start on petrol and then switch to propane on our dual fuel machines.
