G3606 A4 Gas Engine

DESCRIPTION

G3600 ADEM™4 engines provide a wide range of power options to fit your gas compression application. G3600 ADEM™4 engines bring the highest uptime in the industry and long operating intervals between overhaul. Operators that use G3600 ADEM™4 engines in their fleet enjoy virtually no unscheduled downtime, the right power for their application, the lowest operating costs, and emissions compliance. Ideal applications for G3600 ADEM™4 engines include centralized gathering stations, gas processing, transmissions, and storage applications. Cat G3606 ADEM™4 Gen 1 gas engine with ratings: 1398 bkW (1875 bhp) @ 1000 rpm and ADEM™4 Gen 2 gas engine ratings: standard power - 4717 bKW (1900 hp) and uprate power - 1540 bKW (2065 bhp) @ 1000 rpm. NSPS site compliant capable.

Emissions

Meets U.S. EPA Spark Ignited Stationary NSPS Emissions for 2010 with the use of an oxidation catalyst

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.

Ease of Operation

Includes engine mounted thermostats, compress oil cooler connections, jacket water and lube oil heater connections.

Advanced Digital Engine Management

ADEM4 engine management system integrates speed control, air/fuel ratio control, and ignition/detonation controls into a complete engine management system. ADEM4 has improved: user interface, display system, shutdown controls, and system diagnostics.

Gas Engine Rating Pro

GERP is a web-based program designed to provide site performance capabilities for Cat® natural gas engines for the gas compression industry.
