Criteria to achieve emission reductions

The following criteria must be met in order for appropriately retrofitted engines to achieve the aforementioned emission reductions:

  1. Baseline engine must be in a certified configuration and operating on fuel with less than 15 ppm sulfur.
  2. Exhaust temperature data logging will be performed before each installation, and exhaust temperatures must be above 325 degrees °C for at least 25% of the normal duty cycle. As there may be significant variations from application to application, Nett Technologies will review actual engine operating conditions and perform temperature data-logging prior to retrofitting an engine with the BlueMAX™ PLUS 100 system to ensure compatibility.
  3. Each installation will be equipped with a monitoring system that displays warning lights and error codes visible to the operator, providing urea tank level and diagnostic information.
  4. The engine/equipment must not be equipped with a crankcase oil burning system.
  5. The engine should be well maintained and not consume lubricating oil at a rate greater than that specified by the engine manufacturer.
  6. The engine must not have been originally certified or equipped with a DOC or diesel particulate filter (DPF).
  7. The DPF component of the system is recommended for service every 1000 hours of use.
