Dresser Waukesha Introduces High-Performance Engines for Gas Compression Market
Dresser Waukesha has introduced its 275GL Series engines, a new generation of high-performance engines for the gas compression market. The new 275GL Series combines the robust construction and reliable operation of Waukesha’s ATGL Series with design and engineering updates and an enhanced engine control system. The result is a new, high-performance engine series that enables customers to maximize efficiency and minimize fuel cost while greatly simplifying and improving packaging, operation and service.
The 275GL Series has been designed with factory-mounted lube oil and cooling systems, which reduce the time and cost required to design, fabricate, and integrate the 275GL into a compressor package. Other features include an upgraded oil filtration system with plate-type oil cooler and spin-on disposable lube oil filter elements, and quick disconnects for ignition coils and thermocouples. These improvements, along with new design features that are common to both the 12- and 16-cylinder models, streamline and optimize the 275GL Series.
Standard on the 275GL Series is an enhanced version of Dresser Waukesha’s easy-to-use control system, the Engine System Manager (ESM), which has been proven on the company’s VHP and APG product lines.
The 16-cylinder (16V275GL) version of the 275GL engine is available now and is rated at 4500 bhp; the 12-cylinder (12V275GL) model will be available in the fourth quarter of 2009 and will be rated at 3375 bhp, eight percent higher than the 12-cylinder ATGL model.
