Diesel generators have faster start times compared to traditional natural gas engines. Since the ZHRO™ system is designed to meet the exact performance standards of its diesel counterpart, startup times are not a limiting factor.
Diesel engines have Break Thermal Efficiencies (BTE) of 40% or greater, vs. natural gas engines in the 36% range. The ZHRO™ system pushes beyond the efficiencies of current natural gas technology, removing the stigma of lower fuel efficiency.
Natural gas engines produces less power than diesel for comparable physical generator size due to lower thermal efficiency and lower cylinder pressures. The ZHRO™ system creates the correct cylinder pressures needed to support the power of an existing diesel engine.
