• The GTI Bi-Fuel® System from ALTRONIC, LLC is an innovative technology that enables operators of heavy-duty diesel engines to substantially reduce operational costs and lower emissions by substituting diesel fuel with lower cost, cleaner-burning natural gas.

  • The Bi-Fuel® System is comprised of patented technologies that allow engines to safely operate on gas percentages up to a maximum of 70% (subject to gas quality and other application conditions) of the total fuel requirement.

  • Engines converted to GTI Bi-Fuel® exhibit diesel-like performance in such critical areas as efficiency, stability and load acceptance.

                                                  Altronic GTI Bi-Fuel® Benefits

RETURN ON INVESTMENT:
As quick as two months for engines running 24/7 and connected to pipeline gas.


LOWER DIESEL CONSUMPTION:

Bi-fuel engine runs on up to 70% on natural gas fuel. 

 

EXTENDED RUN TIMES:

On stored diesel fuel - important for emergency power situations. 

 

CARB COMPLIANT: 

Helping engine meet demanding regulatory requirements. 

     

SAME ENGINE OUTPUT:

Does not decrease the power output of your engine.
 

NON-INTRUSIVE INSTALLATION:

The Bi-fuel system is bolt-on solution and is non-intrusive to your engine.

 

POTENTIAL EXTENDED MAINTENANCE INTERVALS:

Due to running cleaner natural gas fuel being consumed in the combustion chamber.

The savings realized by running the GTI Bi-Fuel® System is directly related to the cost of diesel fuel, cost of gas, and the number of hours of operation. The following is an example is a cost comparison between running a 1000 kW generator on 100% diesel and on Bi-Fuel with a 65% gas-to-diesel ratio in continuous operation.  A number of assumptions are made in this example which are clearly stated in order to clarify the calculations.
