As the focus on protecting the environment continues to intensify, businesses everywhere must take steps to ensure the power equipment they use on a daily basis complies with increasingly stringent emissions standards. The failure to do so can result in severe penalties that can impact a business's profitability for many years to come. While achieving compliance isn't an easy task, help is available that can simplify the process. Johnson Power Systems offers a wide range of emissions solutions to our client base in Riverside and San Bernardino counties and throughout the Southern California region.
Every state is expected to comply with the National Ambient Air Quality Standards in accordance with the Clean Air Act. The NAAQS specifies the acceptable level of pollutants that can be released into the environment. The California Air Resources Board also has the authority to regulate the level of particulate matter and ozone emissions produced by diesel power equipment in the state. Our Emissions Solutions Team can bring you up to speed on these and other government regulations, as well as offer recommendations for the most cost-effective methods for achieving and maintaining compliance.
Our emissions solutions also include products that can help you reach your goal of emissions compliance. We offer diesel oxidation catalysts, which are aftermarket products that can lower emissions from diesel engines while in use. Diesel oxidation catalysts can reduce particulate matter by as much as 20 percent. Another option is the use of diesel particulate filters that can reduce PM and other pollutants through catalytic oxidation and filtration. We can recommend the right product for your equipment and even provide expert installation if necessary.
Recognizing the challenges that companies face in reaching emissions compliance, Caterpillar continues to incorporate effective emissions solutions into the design of its diesel engines. The newest Cat engines feature innovative ACERT technology that meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 emissions guidelines that are being phased in between 2008 and 2015. Cat ACERT engines can reduce PM emissions by up to 90 percent, while also improving fuel efficiency. The integrated design results in increased engine power and performance.
The combination of knowledge, equipment and technology can help your company reach its goal of emissions compliance in a cost-effective manner, and without having to sacrifice power and performance. Let Johnson Power Systems serve as your partner in your quest to become a "green" company that continues to meet the challenge presented by strict environmental regulations.
