Kubota's New Gas Engines
Kubota Engine America Corp., Lincolnshire, Ill. has announced the release of a family of three spark ignited engines specifically targeted for use in the oil & gas and compression markets.
The new family of Kubota natural gas engines, the models WG1605, WG2503 (pictured) and WG3800, share many of the same components found in the company’s diesel counterparts and are now approved and warranted for wellhead gas operations, such as pump jacks, compressors, and vapor recovery units. The new gas engine line, Kubota’s first LSI range, were designed specifically for the harsh environments found in oil and gas fields. The engines are U.S. EPA/CARB Phase 3 certified.
The model WG2503 is available for order, while the WG3800 and WG1605 models will be available in 2019, with sales handled through KEA’s distribution network.
The new WG engines all are four-cylinder, vertical inline, water-cooled configurations. All are naturally-aspirated, with displacements of 1.53 L for the model WG1605, 2.49 L for the WG2503, and 3.76 L for the WG3800. Net continuous outputs on natural gas/commercial LPG for the WG1605 are: 37.3 hp/39.8 hp at 3600 rpm; 43.3 hp/47.3 hp at 2700 rpm for the WG2503; while the WG3800 has outputs of 65.8 hp/70.8 hp at 2600 rpm.
The KEA engines are expected to compete primarily with automotive-based engines in these sorts of applications. Kubota counters that these newly introduced engines are based on diesel designs and should provide a longer life cycle.
