SlipStream®

SlipStream® is a proprietary, patented technology that utilizes vented hydrocarbons that would otherwise be lost to the atmosphere, as a supplementary fuel source for natural gas engines. SlipStream® technology monitors and controls the addition of these vented hydrocarbons to ensure safe and reliable engine operation. As an addition to the REMVue® product family, SlipStream® technology can be easily integrated into new or existing installations and used on engines from 100 to 4,000 horsepower. 

  • SS3 - Reduced engine fuel consumption up to 3 kg/hour
  • SS10 - Reduced engine fuel consumption up to 10 kg/hour
  • SS50 - Reduced engine fuel consumption up to 50 kg/hour

ROI is typically less than 6 months. Using SlipStream®, up to 50% of engine fuel can come from the vented sources.

Why Use Vented Emissions? 
  • Methane is a greenhouse gas (21 × CO2) 
  • Vents and leaks are expensive to eliminate 
  • A natural gas engine burns over 99% of its fuel 
  • Fuel can be comprised of methane, ethane, propane, butane, CO, H2, BTEX* (> 99.5% reduction)
  • Less normal fuel is needed (i.e.: significant fuel savings possible) 
  • No recompression or VRU is required 
  • No need to upgrade to instrument air or low bleed devices if majority of vented gas can be used in engine(s)
