Efficiency, performance, and emissions. In today's marketplace, these factors play a key role in gas engine development. As engine performance advances are made, gas metering devices should be more flexible and accurate, and be used for a wide range of gas qualities from butane down to landfill gas.
The TecJet is an electronic gas metering valve for single-point injection. It has integrated sensors and electronics, which provide the correct gas flow under all specified conditions. In general, a separate engine control system, like the EGS-02 control or LECM, calculates the desired gas flow from the different engine and gas parameters. This desired gas flow is transmitted through a CAN link to the TecJet valve(s).
The TecJet valve ensures that the desired gas flow is attained, automatically compensating for changes in gas pressure and gas temperature. The TecJet 110 gas control valve is used for stationary applications within a power range of 650–2000 kW for low-BTU specialty gas and 1300–3000 kW for pipeline-quality natural gas.
The E3, E6 or 733(CAT-MHI) Full Authority control always works in combination with one or more TecJet controls. In general, the EGS calculates the desired gas flow from the different engine and gas parameters. This gas flow is transmitted through a CAN link to the TecJet control(s). The TecJet control ensures that proper gas flow is maintained, regardless of gas pressure and temperature.
