Overview

Cat C32 ACERT hazardous location engines are the ideal solution for specialized and demanding operations in the oilfield. Engines are hazardous-location certified from the factory to minimize installation design, time, and cost. Decades of field operation and intense research and development allow Cat C32 ACERT hazardous location engines to deliver excellent performance with low operating costs and emissions.Hazardous location engines are certified to operate in potentially explosive environments. Applications powered by C32 ACERT engines include well stimulation pumping, pump skids, nitrogen units, acidizing units, blenders, and hydraulic power units. Cat engines are backed by the worldwide network of Cat dealers ready to support your operation with technical support, service, parts, and warranty.C32 ACERT hazardous location engines, with ratings 597-828 bkW (800-1110 bhp) @ 2100 rpm meet IMO Tier II, U.S. EPA Marine Tier 2, and U.S. EPA Non-road Tier 2 equivalent emission standards. They are available using U.S. EPA and EU Flexibility, and for other regulated and non-regulated areas.

Cat® Hazardous Location Engine

Cat Petroleum Hazardous Location Engines are third-party certified from Caterpillar- Class I Division 2 (NEC 500) - Class I Zone 2 (NEC 505) - ATEX Directive (94/9/EC) Group II, 3G environments (Zone 2) with Gas Group IIA, Electrical IIC, and Temperature Class T3**

Technology

- Electrical harness containing point-to-point wiring without splices in any power/signal wires- Electrical harnesses and connectors are overmolded and are routed through urethane tube for protection against impact and vertical flame propagation.- To meet safety requirements, connectors require the use of a special tool to be disconnected and bear the “do not disconnect while energized” warning.- Optional ATEX and NEC certified 25-foot customer harness- ECU is certified as part of the engine to restricted breathing per EN 60079-15. ECU is protected with a stainless steel guard.- Fuel injector connections at valve cover bases are protected with stainless steel guards

Advanced Digital Engine Management

ADEM A4 engine management system integrates speed control, air/fuel ratio control and ignition/detonation controls into a complete engine management system with integrated digital ignition, engine protection and monitoring.

Transmissions

The full line of Cat engine/transmission packages can be fully integrated with your axle, hydraulics, and operator interface. Cat transmissions deliver continuous operation under full load, smooth shifting at any speed, and maximum up time, with unmatched durability and easy maintenance.
