India is one of the huge markets comprising of many manufacturers, exporters and suppliers of dual fuel engines. These vendors of dual fuel engines are scattered all over indian markets nurturing the requirements of large variety of buyers for dual fuel engines who are also scattered throughout india. Different varieties of dual fuel engines are available for different industrial purpose. The prime importance for the buyer is to source the quality dual fuel engines that suit his requirement and pocket/budget thus increasing his production & profits.
a technology from caterpillar combines natural gas and diesel, resulting in an engine that provides the low emissions of natural gas, without giving up the performance of a cat diesel. A dual-fuel engine primarily runs on natural gas - up to 85% in most applications - with a small volume of diesel injected to provide ignition. Dual-fuel engines can run on either liquid natural gas or compressed natural gas. Both fuels have relatively high octane, which means better performance. Other benefits include use of exhaust and compression brakes, similar to diesels; conversion back to straight diesel for improved resale value; and many of the diesel electronic monitoring and control features also function with dual-fuel operation. If a failure occurs in the natural gas system, the electronic controls instantly slips the engine back to its traditional diesel operation, allowing drivers a back-up power source until a natural gas service facility can be located dual-fuel technology also allows combustion of natural gas at diesel compression levels, so spark plugs and restrictive air throttles are unneeded. Engine ratings available with the dual-fuel technology are the 3126b 190 horsepower and 250 hp, c-10 305 hp, and c-12 410 hp. Dual-fuel engines are carb-certified to the 2.5 g nox level, and where natural gas is readily available and cheaper than diesel, operating costs can be lower. Converting an existing engine to dual-fuel requires relatively minor and mostly external changes to the original electronic diesel engine and can be performed by any cat engine dealer. Dual-fuel engines also can be ordered in many new trucks. A gas engine can be designed to run on gas, or oil, or a mixture of the two. There are two different configurations.
Dual fuel engine-
this can run on oil alone, or a mixture of gas and oil. It cannot run on gas alone because it has no spark ignition system. Dual-fuel vehicles is used to include other alternative fuel vehicles that can run with compressed natural gas (cng), liquefied petroleum gas (lpg; also known as auto gas), or hydrogen. However, all these vehicles actually are bi-fuel and not flexible-fuel vehicles, because they have engines that store the other fuel in a separate tank, and the engine runs on one fuel at a time. Dual-fuel vehicles have the capability to switch back and forth from gasoline to the other fuel, manually or automatic. The most common available fuel in the market for bi-fuel cars is natural gas (cng)
