Ultra Lean Burn Technology (ULB)

ULB technology uses an advanced control system, a better turbo match, improved air and fuel mixing, and a more sophisticated combustion recipe to provide: - Lowest engine-out emissions - Highest fuel efficiency - Improved altitude and speed turndown - Stable load acceptance and load rejection


- Meets U.S. EPA Spark Ignited Stationary NSPS emissions for 2010 - Lean air/fuel mixture provides best available emissions and fuel efficiency for engines of this bore size

Advanced Digital Engine Management

ADEM A3 engine management system integrates speed control, air/fuel ratio control, and ignition/detonation controls into a complete engine management system. ADEM A3 has improved: user interface, display system, shutdown controls, and system diagnostics.

Full Range of Attachments

Large variety of factory-installed engine attachments reduces packaging time.


Every engine is full-load tested to ensure proper engine performance.

Gas Engine Rating Pro

GERP is a PC-based program designed to provide site performance capabilities for Cat® natural gas engines for the gas compression industry. GERP provides engine data for your site's altitude, ambient temperature, fuel, engine coolant heat rejection, performance data, installation drawings, spec sheets, and pump curves.
