Composition of Natural Gas
High quality pipeline gas has the following composition in percentage volume:
- Methane 97.09%
- Ethane 0.88%
- Propane 0.26%
- Butane 0.09%
- Nitrogen 1.41%
- Carbon Dioxide 0.12%
- Oxygen 0%
Major components of the GTI Bi-Fuel System:
- Patented Mixer
- Bi-Fuel Control Panel
- Independent of Engine Control Panel
- Communications via "MODBUS RTU"
- Annunciation of Bi-Fuel Operation
These components are designed with the following features:
- Fixed Flow
- Screwed on connection
- Aerospace Precision
Some of the features of the Bi-Fuel Gas Train:
- State-of-the-art design
- Carries all major approvals
- SAA, and Cenelec
- Valve proving system
- 50 micron gas filtration
Time and Manpower Requirements for Conversion
Conversion time will depend on the size and complexity of the application.
Generally, one to two days will be required for smaller engines, while larger engines might
require two to four days. In either case, manpower required is usually limited to between one
and three technicians.
Lowered Pollution Levels
The chart below shows the impact of the GTI Bi-Fuel System and an SCR Catalyst on NOx levels.
As it is show very clearly the NOx levels are very much lowered with the Bi-Fuel Technologies.
