Depco Power Systems, a leading provider of generator sets and marine and industrial engines, announced today that it is hosting a live demonstration of the state-of-the-art bi-fuel retrofit system offered from GFS Corp, May 7, 2013, at its corporate offices at 8123 Hillsboro Street in Houston, TX 77029.

Two sessions are scheduled, the first beginning at 10:30 a.m., with a product review followed at 11 with a live run. A question-and-answer session is slated for 11:30 a.m. to noon, followed by a barbecue lunch. The second session mirrors the first, beginning with a product review at 2 p.m., the live product run at 2:30; questions and answers are at 3 and beer and refreshments follow from 4 to 6 p.m.

Attendees will learn how to:

  •     Blend natural gas into diesel engines
  •     Operate stationary diesel engines safely on natural gas while maintaining rated power and performance
  •     Perform plug and play on-site conversion
  •     Reduce operating costs and extend emergency runtime

The bi-fuel system is designed for a variety of industrial applications ranging from emergency stand-by power to the most demanding continuous duty operations. The system is compatible with both constant- and variable-speed applications using either mechanical or electronic governing systems.

In addition to pipeline-supplied natural gas, the bi-fuel system from GFS Corp. is compatible with other fuels including wellhead gas, associated gas, biogas and coal-bed methane (CBM). The use of non-pipeline gas may require filtration and/or drying to ensure engine and system durability.

The bi-fuel system that will be showcased is compatible for the stationary power sector for use in the following applications:

Electric power generation

  •     Emergency stand-by power
  •     Prime power
  •     Peak shaving
  •     Load sharing
  •     Co-generation

Oil and gas operation

  •     Land and offshore electric drill rigs
  •     Land and offshore hydraulic drill rigs
  •     Mobile fracturing pumps
  •     Crude pumps

The bi-fuel system from GFS is able to meet the demands of the most challenging industrial applications including oil and gas drilling, prime power, peak-shaving and critical stand-by power systems.

Transportation can be arranged to and from the event upon request.
