SlipStream® is a proprietary, patented technology that utilizes vented hydrocarbons, which 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, reliable, and efficient engine operation. Our technology be easily integrated into new or existing installations and used on engines from 100 to 4,000 horsepower. 

Spartan Controls provides three different options for SlipStream® systems:

  • SS3 - Maximum flow rate of 5 kg/hour
  • SS10 - Maximum of 10% of total engine fuel flow can be supplemented by the SlipStream® system
  • SS50 - Maximum of 50% of total engine fuel flow can be supplemented by the SlipStream® system

The return on investment (ROI) is typically less than 6 months because using SlipStream®, up to 50% of engine fuel can come from the vented sources meaning less waste.


Why Use Vented Emissions? 
  • Methane is a greenhouse gas (25 × 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)
  • Significant fuel and GHG savings
  • 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)
