G3516 TA Achieves Low-NOx with Three-Way Catalyst
Caterpillar Oil & Gas is taking orders for its natural gas-fueled, stoichiometric Cat G3516 TA engine. The engine for compression applications has a power rating of 1,029 brake-kilowatts, or 1,380 brake-horsepower, and “continues to expand Caterpillar’s gas portfolio.”
“The G3516 TA is designed and built on the proven reliability and durability of the G3500 engine platform,” Cat says. It provides high fuel efficiency and low emissions output with customer-supplied three-way catalyst: “When configured with an appropriately sized customer-supplied three-way catalyst, this product is capable of meeting 0.15 g/bhp-hr NOx emissions,” Cat says.
The G3516 TA features an engine management system integrating speed control, air/fuel ratio control, and ignition/detonation controls in a single architecture.
