DGB Genset

Save fuel while maintaining diesel power and transient performance. Only Caterpillar can deliver the unmatched flexibility, performance, convenience, and peace of mind supplied by Cat® Dynamic Gas Blending™ (DGB™) technology in a factory-installed package that offers a payback in as little as a few weeks.

DGB technology gives you a methane and diesel genset with the flexibility to handle variations in fuel quality and engine operating conditions – use gas when it’s available and diesel when it’s not. 

 

A DUAL-FUEL SOLUTION

Your DGB generator set automatically adjusts to fuel quality changes, eliminating the need for field calibration. DGB ensures maximum substitution over the widest load range in the industry, so you enjoy the same service intervals and component longevity while maintaining diesel generator set power and transient response performance. Our Custom Power Solutions team will design a fuel-blending system to meet your specific needs. 

Benefits of Cat DGB Generator Sets and Power Solutions

  • Reduced commissioning times facilitated by single-point interface for engine, generator, and DGB functions
  • Maintain existing service intervals and component life, eliminating extra servicing costs
  • Meets and, in some instances, exceeds emissions certification requirements for diesel products
  • Ability to accept a range of gas quality; system automatically adjusts to fuel quality changes, eliminating the need for field calibration
