Dedicated exhaust gas recirculation applied to a rich burn industrial natural gas engine
Rich burn natural gas engines provide power for industrial applications such as gas compression. In this application where exhaust oxides of nitrogen (NOx) requirements can be critical, rich burn engines offer best in class aftertreatment emission reduction and operating cost capabilities by using a non-selective catalyst reduction (NSCR) or three-way catalyst system. However, due to high combustion temperatures associated with near stoichiometric air-fuel ratio (AFR) operation, rich burn engines are limited in brake mean effective pressure (BMEP) by combustion temperature. Consumers in the gas ...
