The Dynamic Solution

Our Dynamic Gas Blending (DGB) technology offers a methane and gas genset giving you the flexibility to use gas when it’s available and diesel fuel when it’s not. An installed package that offers cost savings of up to $100/eMWh. If you’re looking for prime power that offers cost effectiveness, efficiency and choice, read on!

Allowing up to 70% diesel substitution whilst maintaining high performance and safe operation, DGB technology is also available as a retrofit option and comes equipped with the Caterpillar warranty, and backed by the global Cat dealer network.

Performance and cost effectiveness – Why compromise? 

The benefits are clear:

  1. Quick Start & Excellent Load Pick Up 
    Made possible by start up on 100% diesel, switching to gas up to 70% substitution 
  2. Lower Cost of Ownership 
    Versus diesel-fuelled product, using gas in place of fuel oil where available 
  3. Less Susceptible to Fuel Supply Interruptions
    With the proliferation of gas supply pipelines, less affected by weather conditions

And it doesn’t end there…

  • Our DGB generator sets automatically adjust to changes in fuel quality and engine operating conditions,   without the need for field calibration.
  • Maximise gas substitution while protecting your genset (Measures cylinder pressure – provide CAT warranty on entire package!)
  • CE Certification and equipped with a range of integrated safety features including configurable alarm and shutdown features, flame arrestors and optional air shut-off and extra alarm switches.

 

3516B Series DGB generator set models and associated DGB retrofit kits are not suitable for use in EPA regulated territories.
