  •          The Cat 3512B Land Electric Drilling Module with Dynamic Gas Blending (DGB):
    The Cat 3512B Generator Set with DGB offers customers fuel flexibility without sacrificing performance and is available in a 1245 ekW (1750 kVA) @ 50 Hz (1500 rpm) rating. The Dynamic Gas Blending kit automatically adjusts to changes in incoming fuel quality and pressure allowing engines to run on a wide variety of fuels, from associated gas to vaporized LNG with no loss of performance integrity. It maintains diesel performance levels with up to 70 percent replacement of diesel with gas, accepts up to 55 percent inerts. No customer input or gas analysis is needed during operation, and no recalibration is required when the equipment is moved or the gas supply changes.
  •          TH55-E70 Transmission – The TH55-E70 transmission is optimized for petroleum pumping applications. Its evenly spaced gear ratios provide smooth shifting for pumping, providing for a much broader range of pumping speeds than the competition. The transmission with 7 speed option and deep first gear ratio creates application flexibility, and allows pumping at lower flow rates and pressure.
  •          Scale Model of GenSet ATEX Zone 2: A detailed scale model of an explosion proof Generator Set suitable for safe operation in Zone 2 hazardous areas, will be displayed on the stand, demonstrating the complexity of explosion proofing equipment. Pyroban, a Caterpillar company, offers ATEX Zone 2 explosion proof packages, fully customizable and designed to integrate with complex equipment with offerings ranging from components to complete power solutions and generator sets for a broad spectrum of applications. In addition to explosion proof packages, Pyroban offers a range of Ex products including up-fit kits for existing engines.
