Engine Design

- Proven reliability and durability - Ability to burn a wide spectrum of gaseous fuels - Robust diesel strength design prolongs life and lowers owning and operating costs - Broad operating speed range

Emissions

Meets U.S. EPA Spark Ignited Stationary NSPS Emissions for 2007/8

Lean Burn Engine Technology

Lean-burn engines operate with large amounts of excess air. The excess air absorbs heat during combustion reducing the combustion temperature and pressure, greatly reducing levels of NOx. Lean-burn design also provides longer component life and excellent fuel consumption.

Advanced Digital Engine Management

ADEM A3 control system providing integrated ignition, speed governing, protection, and controls, including detonation-sensitive variable ignition timing. ADEM A3 has improved: user interface, display system, shutdown controls, and system diagnostics.

Ease of Operation

Side covers on block allow for inspection of internal components

Full Range of Attachments

Large variety of factory-installed engine attachments reduces packaging time

Testing

Every engine is full-load tested to ensure proper engine performance.

Gas Engine Rating Pro

GERP is a PC-based program designed to provide site performance capabilities for Cat® natural gas engines for the gas compression industry. GERP provides engine data for your site’s altitude, ambient temperature, fuel, engine coolant heat rejection, performance data, installation drawings, spec sheets, and pump curves.
