    Our Rental Gas turbines can operate on a wide range of gases and a variety of distillate (diesel) fuels. Our preferred fuel is pipeline quality natural gas (90% plus methane content), but we can also operate on low energy gaseous fuels (digester gas) and higher energy fuels that contain heavy hydrocarbons (associated gas).

    Low Emissions
    The majority of our Rental Gas Turbines are configured with Dry Low NOx combustion systems to ensure low NOX and CO emissions. Maximum emissions when operating on pipeline quality natural gas are 25 ppm NOX and 50 ppm CO.  Use Cat's Turbine Emissions Calculator for an estimate on emissions in your application.
