ArvinMeritor to supply ActiveClean to GEP
Jul 1, 2006 12:00 PM
ArvinMeritor and General Engine Products (GEP), a solely owned subsidiary of AM General, jointly announced an agreement under which ArvinMeritor will supply its ActiveClean atomizer technology, as part of the emissions control aftertreatment system for GEP's 2007 Optimizer 6500 V8 TurboDiesel engine line. The aftertreatment system will help the Optimizer engines meet United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) engine emissions regulations that go into effect in 2007.
“ArvinMeritor's atomizer product provides uniform disbursement of diesel fuel into the exhaust stream at the optimal particle size, so that the fuel can provide efficient regeneration of a diesel particulate filter and/or a lean NOx trap,” said Silvio Angori, general manager of ArvinMeritor's Commercial Vehicle Emissions business.
The atomizer is part of a system of aftertreatment components that process diesel engine exhaust to enable engines to meet 2007 EPA emissions regulations. GEP will also use exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), oxidation catalysts, particulate filters, and nitrogen oxide traps to meet the new emissions standards.
