What is Stoichiometric Combustion?
§  Ideal combustion process where fuel is burned
completely
–  Ideal air/fuel ratio - chemically correct mixing of fuel and air
–  Consumes all fuel & air without excess of either in exhaust
–  No Oxygen in exhaust stream allows Three Way Catalyst to
handle NOx control
§  Benefits:
–  Increased power density
–  Increased thermal efficiency
–  Decreased emissions

Noise
Cost of maintenance related to ignition and overhead valve
adjustments adds incremental maintenance costs.
Natural gas engines require a specific oil that meets Cummins
specification CES 20074
Natural gas engines are up to 10db quieter at idle

Reduced Noise
*
Spark ignition provides
quiet operation
Communities notice the
natural gas noise
advantage.
ONE Diesel engine idling is
louder than TEN natural
gas engines idling together
ISL G is 5.5 decibels
quieter at peak torque
and load
ISL G is 9.9
decibels quieter
at Idle/no load
* ISX12 G Noise Data TBA

Cold Weather Operation
§  Guidelines are published in ISL G/ISX12 G CM2180 owners
manual and operation and maintenance manuals
§  Refer to Customer Service Bulletin 4332709 – Operation of Natural
Gas Engines in Cold Climates.
§  AEB 174.04 Provides further guidelines for Cold Weather Engine
operation for All Automotive and Industrial Engines.

ISL G Near Zero
§  Production begins Q1 2016
§  Base ISL G engine design is the same
–  Engine will be factory built at Cummins Rocky Mount Engine
Plant
–  Ratings and operational / maintenance procedures will be the
same
–  No change in technician service certification requirements
–  Package size similar
§  Closed Crankcase Ventilation (CCV) will be added to engine
–  Current ISL G has an open breather system.
–  CCV Filter is chassis mounted
§  Three Way Catalyst will change to meet next level emissions
–  Remains maintenance free
–  Larger size catalyst with addition sensor added
§  Next level calibration leading to OBD in 2018
CWI - ISL G Near Zero
§  New Vehicles
–  New model year engine & aftertreatment are supplied to vehicle
OEM for first installation in new model year vehicle, then sold to
end user.
§  Repower
–  Existing end user owned vehicle, where engine and
aftertreatment are removed and replaced with new model year
engine and aftertreatment. Work typically conducted at
Cummins Distributor.
§  Retrofit
–  Existing end user owned vehicle, where new engine and/or
aftertreatment parts are installed (added or replace currently
installed parts) to existing engine and/or vehicle.

Fuel and Fuel Systems
§  Cummins Westport natural gas engines fuel requirements enable
the use of both CNG or LNG.
§  Customers may choose CNG or LNG depending on duty cycle,
application, and/or fuel availability.
§  Natural gas fuel (CNG or LNG) must meet fuel quality
requirements per AEB 79.05 (CES14624)
§  Regardless of how the fuel is stored on the vehicle, the at engine
fuel inlet pressure at rated conditions requirement is the same
–  ISL G - minimum 70 psi, maximum 150 psi
–  ISX12 G – minimum 60 psi, maximum 150 psi
Go with Natural Gas - Cummins Westport Jan 2015

CNG Fuel Storage
§  Strong and safe - Carbon fiber wrapped CNG tanks
–  3,600 psi capability
§  Can be mounted vertically or horizontally.

LNG Fuel System Description
§  LNG tanks are designed with thermal properties to store natural
gas as a liquid (-260 F).
§  The liquid leaves the tank to a heat exchanger supplied with
engine coolant to warm the gas to gaseous form. As it returns to
gaseous state it expands and pressurizes the system.
§  A LNG fuel system is a low pressure system designed for normal
operating pressure of 230 psi.
§  Fuel lines are fully annealed high-quality stainless steel hydraulic
tubing type 304 or 316 seamless stainless steel.

(Both CNG and LNG Systems)

§ Primary fuel shut off valve opens in key on position

§ Regulates fuel storage pressure to engine pressure (60-150 psi)
§ Fuel heater supplied with warm engine coolant to prevent freezing
§ Fuel pre-filter(s) mounted near engine have a daily drain requirement
