Natural Gas Fuel Systems for EMD Engines
RPS offers innovative retrofit technologies from Energy Conversions Inc. that enable the classic EMD 2 stroke locomotive engine to operate reliably and efficiently on natural gas. ECI’s NG fuel systems are optimized direct low pressure gas injection with revised after cooling and modified pistons. Both dual fuel and dedicated gas conversions are available and provide fully automated operation, cleaner fuel, reduced engine wear and lower maintenance.
Dual Fuel System
- >90% diesel to gas replacement
- Maintains diesel-only capability for greater versatility
- Achieves full rated horsepower in both diesel and dual fuel modes
- >66% Reduction in NOx emissions
Dedicated Natural Gas
- 100% diesel to gas replacement
- Achieves full rated horsepower
- An extremely low emissions
- No Toxic Diesel PM emissions
- 1-2 g/hp-hr of NOx (Tier 3+)
- Up to 50% reduction in fuel costs
When combined with the Blended aftertreatment system, these natural gas conversion solutions can be Tier 4 compliant without sacrificing performance or efficiency.
