Low Emissions Plus High Performance Equal Clean Power Engine Line from Cat
Sep 1, 2001 12:00 PM
Caterpillar Truck Engines says its new Clean Power engine line delivers lower emissions levels than the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) currently requires, without sacrificing performance, fuel economy, driveability, or serviceability.
The Clean Power 3126E, available since March 1, delivers up to 12% fewer nitrogen oxides. New heavy-duty Clean Power engines include the C-10, C-12, C-15, and C-16, all of which will offer up to 8% less NOx than previous engines.
Ratings range from 175 to 330 horsepower for midrange, and 355 to 600 hp for heavy-duty. All are certified for both EPA and California Air Resources Board (CARB) requirements. Three mid-range ratings — 207, 216, and 230 hp — are also certified to meet the low-emissions vehicle standards required for participation in the Clean Fuel Fleet Vehicle program being implemented in designated non-attainment areas of the United States.
The next generation of Clean Power engines will feature a new emissions control strategy: Advanced Combustion Emissions Reduction Technology (ACERT).
