cost of gasoline and the negative effect of it which usually result in the
emission of carbon monoxide that had killing many through the inhalation of
poisonous gas this led to technological research that brought about the design
and fabrication of generators gas conversion kit which is also referred to as A
85 C and type and type I thought 4 conversion kit is used to convert a generating
set to run on gas and eliminate completely the
poisonous and delay carbon monoxide produced by gasoline generating set

monoxide poisoning occurs after enough inhalation of carbon monoxide (co).
Carbon monoxide a toxic gas, but being colourless odorless, tasteless and
initially nonirritating, it is very difficult for people to detect, it is a product
of incomplete combustion of organic matter due to insufficient oxygen supply to
enable complete oxidation to carbon dioxide (CO2). It is often produced in
domestic or industrial setting by motor vehicle and other gasoline powered
tools heater generating set and cooking equipment [Theodore Banzhaf 1993]
(inventory in energy and heat removal technology).
the last few year more and more outdoor appliance have shown up that are gas
powered patio heater gas fire place including generating set power by propane
and compressed natural gas (co).
conversion kit is a new technology design by different research all over the
world to enable different type of
generating set to be powered by propane
gas and compressive natural gas (CNG) at a cheaper rate and also free from
emission of carbon monoxide that are very dangerous to human health (forth
smith) 2011. (Natural Gas Conversion Kit).
According to Danbury (fuel cell energy inc) natural
gas has many benefit, first all depending on where you live, it can be much
cheaper as much as a third price of propane for each BTU since natural gas has
the power of propane it can actually a sixth a much or less than propane per
volume but natural burns which cleaner than propane gas.
cleaner pressure effect caused by the restrictive action of the air cleaner
element. The effect will increase as the element becomes dirty and can cause
rich mixture and good operation.
compensates for excessive air cleaner pressure drop or a positive pressure
created by an intake blower, a tube is run between the atmospheric vent on the
fuel controller and the intake manifold ahead to the carburetor.
section place between the gasoline carburetor and air cleaner that will alow
the gasoline carburetor to intake so the engine can be run on gasoline or
variable restriction in the air intake to increase the pressure drop (vacuum)
in the carburetor.
device to create a learner mixture during part load operation where a richer
mixture is designed art full load.
safety device generally located at a pressurized fuel tank which restrict or
shuts off the fuel flow of the discharge exceeds a certain figure in the event
of a line rupture.
fuel fitter and safety-off
Common term used to describe a unit which contain an
atmospheric zero governors.
placed in a fuel line to remove dirt and rust picked from the tank or service
is a residue picked up by propane from lubricated values and compressors. It
will sometimes collect inside the fuel controller where the pressure is sub-atmosphere.
template inserted between the carburetor and the engine to obtain a vacuum
source or provide an idle gas inlet.
to describe fuel system where the fuel is drawn from the liquid section of the
Lock Off Value
device either electrically or vacuum operated to positively shut off the flow
of fuel if the engine should fail while unattended.
included on most zero governors, allow fuel prior to cranking the engine as a
term applies to the pressure reducing device or section in fuel system that
reduces the tank pressure down to the rated inlet pressure required by the
atmospheric zero governor or pressure carburators.
electrically operated shut-off device used in connection with a manifold sensing vacuum switch or oil
pressure switch to positively shut-off the flow of fuel should engine fail
method used to convert a gasoline carburetor to gaseous fuel by placing a tube
at the small section of the venture.
a fuel system where the fuel is drawn from the vaporized gas section of the
device which includes a regulator and a heat exchange to convent liquid propane
to gaseous state and reduce the pressure these devices with sometimes include
zero governor are called converters.
symmetrical restriction in the intake manifold or carburetor which produces a
pressure drop (vacuum) and drows fuel into the air stream the amount of fuel
drawn in is proportional to the volume and speed of the air passing through the
unit is sometime called fuel controller or secondly it is a vacuum demand.
Scope Of Generator Conversion Kit
purpose of conversion kit is to convert generating set to that which can run
propane and natural gas.
Fabricate a Generator Gas Conversion
Kit for Home and Industrial Generator
educate student and researchers on the use of conversion kit and the technology
behind the generation of electricity with the use propane and natural gas.
