During the week of the 32nd Western Turbine Users Inc conference at the San Diego Convention Center, Continental Controls Corporation held and open house to showcase the new facility. A highlight was unveiling enhanced fuel-gas control valve manufacturing capabilities. CCC's 20,000 sq ft facility integrates in-house manufacturing, testing, and features an internal machine shop, electronics assembly, and R&D lab. During the...
Substituting Diesel Fuel with Natural Gas on Industrial Diesel Engines
The GSS harnesses CCC’s leading fuel control technologies to substitute diesel for gaseous fuels on traditional diesel engines. Advanced substitution control is achieved through direct interface between the GSS and Engine Control Unit (ECU). At nearly any load condition and application, the GSS substitutes the maximum amount of diesel without sacrificing engine performance or power output. The GSS uses proven technology that has been field-tested with years of successful performance.

Continental Controls Corporation’s Gas Substitution System (GSS) is an innovative product that allows diesel engines to operate on a combination of natural gas and other low-cost gases, such as biogas, landfill gas, or digester gas with traditional diesel fuel. The GSS system is designed to provide reliable and efficient combustion control for these blended gases while maximizing fuel savings and minimizing environmental impact.
The GSS system features specialized control panels and software to monitor and automatically adjust the combustion process in real-time to ensure optimal performance and stability. The system is also equipped with advanced safety features, such as shutdown systems and flame detection to prevent any potential hazards.
The use of low-cost gases in combination with natural gas offers several benefits. It can significantly reduce the operational costs of fueling gas engines in the magnitude of thousands of dollars per day. Additionally, the use of low-cost gases can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, helping industries meet their sustainability goals.
The GSS system is particularly beneficial for industries that generate significant amounts of waste gases, such as wastewater treatment plants, landfills, and agricultural facilities. By using waste gases in place of traditional fuels, these industries can reduce their environmental impact while also generating cost savings.
The Gas Substitution System utilizes cutting-edge technology to offer reliable and efficient combustion control in order to maximize cost savings and minimize environmental benefits.
