    What is the lowest fuel gas temperature at the compact gas skid sites are willing to reach before tripping off engines?  The O&M says 40 degrees F is that a hard number or are folks willing to swing below it for a short period?




    Our gas heater was offline for 2 days earlier this summer, and we ended up having 41°F gas during our runs.  The engines seemed to run ok, and none of them tripped off due to the low gas temp.  Our normal gas temp, per Wartsila’s recommendation is 55°F, when our gas heater is online.

    We do not have a gas heater and we see temperatures around 20 degrees in the winter with virtually no issues.
