A Basic overview of the Natural Gas Engine


  • Peterson CAT is presenting a Basic overview of the Natural Gas Engine.
  • This is an ever growing market with increasing flexibility, and if you haven't looked into it lately, we believe you'll find this refresher very valuable.
  • In general terms, we will discuss the various types of applications and standard componentry of the system; unlike Diesels, this starts with the type of fuel you choose.
  • Recent advances allow for compliance with NFPA110 (10 second start) in the larger size Gensets.
  • We will also discuss the many cogeneration options in today's world
  • Thanks - hope to see you there.
