I am doing some jobs over in Virginia around some natural gas pumps. These are converted 16 cylinder CAT diesel engines made to run on natural gas. The engines are connected to a transmission to which 4 pumps are connected. Anyway, all wiring in and around these machines is to be in conduit and with explosion proof fittings. How would you run all the control wires from the sensors and the glow plug wires in conduit. I haven't yet found a way to terminate a piece of conduit with an EP fitting to a glow plug. Any suggestions?

I'd think CAT would have to have something for this application. If not, good luck
Now that I think of it, why do you need glow plugs for Natural gas?, wouldn't they be for diesel only

I would personally get specialist advice about this one.
Some Gas companies have specialist Electricians, that work with this sort of thing all the time, if they don't know, no-one does.
