2-26 APPLICATIONS KIT. The application kit provides remote control of the emergency stop capability and battle
short capability and remote low fuel monitoring. The kit consists of a connector plate, wiring harness, and remote
functions assembly. (Refer to Figure 2-14.)
2-27 ACOUSTIC SUPPRESSION KIT. The acoustic suppression kit provides the ability to lower the noise level
of the generator set to 70dB(A) at 7 meters. The kit consists of panels, doors, and components that cover or replace
original components of the generator set.
The generator set is operated and maintained in the same manner, however, access to components and operation
will change slightly due to configuration changes. (Refer to para 1-11.)
Remember that overall weight and cube of the generatorset will increase with the acoustic suppression kit installed.
(Refer to Figure 2-15.)
If generator set has a fuel burning winterization kit installed, the winterization kit
cannot be operated unless the side panel skirt is raised to permit exhaust of the
Data plates and schematics used in troubleshooting are stored behind the document box mounted on rear panel
when the acoustic suppression kit is installed on the generator set.
2-28 PATRIOT LOAD BANK PROCEDURES.
General. This procedure is recommended for operating a load bank with the 15 KW Diesel Generator Sets
mounted on the PATRIOT Launching Station. The load bank is a Test Set, Electrical (0-33 KW Load Bank),
TS-4216/G. The Generator Set is a Diesel Engine Driven, MEP-113A, 3 phase 4 wire, 120/208 volts. The
Launching Station (LS) is Launching Station, GM, Semi-Trailer Mounted, M901.
Launching Station 15 KW generator sets should be run on a load bank when exhibiting symptoms result-
ing from a diesel engine condition identified as carbon buildup or wet stacking or slobbering. Cosmetically,
the exhaust assembly and surroundings may be coated with fuel oil, a carbon mixture or sludge.
Such symptoms relate to an accumulation of liquid petroleum products in a diesel exhaust system. The
products often ooze from the exhaust manifold gasket or spit up an open exhaust stack. The symptoms,
which may appear on an engine in reasonably good repair, are more likely to occur in cool weather. Typi-
cally the set will have been operated for hundreds of hours under high speed idle under no load or mini-
mum load conditions.
The visible symptoms may be accompanied by substandard engine performance. The engine may not
accept full load, its speed may be erratic. The generator set output may show abnormal voltage and fre-
The load bank may be transported to the LS by CUVC-CARGO, M1008 or other suitable vehicle. Off-load-
ing at the LS site should be in accordance with TM 11-6625-3197-13&P. The load bank should not be
placed directly on muddy ground or in standing water.
