AutoBalance system is on the market to automatically and continuously maintain optimal balance on slow-speed, integral engines — and to control NOx and CO emissions. This new technology also cuts fuel consumption, decreases wear, and improves overall machine availability derived from properly balanced engines, declares AutoBalance’s manufacturer.
Designed for large-bore natural gas fired engines, the system provides continuous, peak-pressure balancing. It is designed for slow-speed integral Cooper-Bessemer, Clark/Dresser, Ingersoll-Rand, Worthington, or other two or four-stroke engines with individual cylinder fuel adjustment valves. Thus AutoBalance is applicable for engines involved in natural gas gathering, transmission, processing, or storage, it’s declared.
The systems help avoid labor-intensive, time-consuming manual engine balancing — often not performed frequently enough to guarantee engines are always in compliance with permits.
As a more practical alternative to high-pressure fuel injection systems, AutoBalance offers easy installation and economic benefits along with self-diagnostics. It requires no maintenance other than semi-annual, on-engine sensor calibration during unit operation. All component are Class 1, Div. 2 rated. Complete AutoBalance information is yours free for the asking.
