Tackling pollution control in diesel generating sets

Tackling pollution control in diesel generating sets
The introduction of Tier 4 and Tier 5 emissions regulations continue to have an impact on manufacturers of diesel engines and the final products in which they are used. Tier 4 has already been implemented for non-emergency generating sets and it seems only a matter of time before they will have to meet Tier 5 requirements. To help manufacturers meet both current and future emissions regulations, Burkert can develop complete dosing packages for selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems.
