Dresser Waukesha Introduces 12-Cylinder High Performance Engine for Gas Compression Applications
Press release date: November 11, 2009
New 12V275GL Engine Delivers 8 % More Power than Predecessor
WAUKESHA, Wis. -- Dresser Waukesha, a leading manufacturer of natural gas engines that deliver clean, cost-effective power, has introduced the 12-cylinder 12V275GL engine, the latest in Dresser Waukesha's 275GL(TM) Series, a new generation of high-performance engines for gas compression applications.
The new 12V275GL engine is rated at 3375 bhp at 1000 rpm - eight percent higher than its predecessor, the 12-cylinder ATGL®. With design and engineering updates as well as an enhanced engine control system, the new engine is designed to maximize efficiency and minimize fuel costs while greatly simplifying and improving packaging, operation and service. At the same time, the new 12V275GL engine retains the robust construction and reliable operation for which its predecessor ATGL model is known.
"Based on my experience with this engine platform and the ESM control system, the new 12V275GL will deliver improved load response, fuel tolerance, and starting capability," said Ron Delisle, director of compression sales and engineering, Propak Systems Ltd. "When you combine these performance enhancements with the higher power rating and the packagability upgrades, I believe Waukesha has created a world-class natural gas engine."
Standard on 275GL Series engines is an enhanced version of Waukesha's reliable, easy-to-use total engine control system, the Engine System Manager (ESM®). ESM optimizes engine performance and maximizes uptime by integrating spark timing control, turbocharger control, speed governing, knock detection, start-stop control, diagnostic tools, fault logging, engine safeties and air/fuel ratio (AFR) control. ESM is factory-mounted, calibrated and tested to minimize on-site set-up requirements.
Engines in the 275GL Series also are equipped with factory-mounted lube oil and cooling systems, which reduce the time and cost required to design, fabricate, and integrate the engine into a compressor package. Other features include an upgraded oil filtration system with plate-type oil cooler and spin-on disposable lube oil filter elements, and quick disconnects for ignition coils and thermocouples. In addition, improvements to the fuel and exhaust systems of the 12V275GL create a more standardized platform between the 12 and 16-cylinder models.
