Nett Technologies Inc. of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, announces the successful verification of its BlueMAX PLUS 100 SCR system by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The BlueMAX PLUS 100 SCR system represents the industry’s only nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) retrofit emission control device to be commercially available to the non-road market.
Nett Technologies’ BlueMAX PLUS 100 SCR system has been designed to reduce NOx and PM by a minimum of 85% from medium- and heavy-duty non-road diesel engines ranging between 75 and 560 kW (100 to 750 hp). In addition to removing NOx and PM, the system also has the added benefit of reducing carbon monoxide (CO) emissions by 95% and hydrocarbons (HC) by 60%. This product is well suited for known PM2.5 and ozone non-attainment areas where controlling both PM and NOx are key factors towards adopting appropriate State Implementation Plans (SIPs) under the Clean Air Act.
The BlueMAX PLUS 100 system consists of a passive diesel particulate filter followed by a urea SCR system. “The BlueMAX PLUS 100 is a great retrofit emission control solution for non-road engines certified to Tier 1, 2 or 3 emission standards. The system is a durable and versatile emission control solution that extends the years of usage of existing construction and non-road equipment. Thanks largely to its direct-fit design, the system not only meets the latest regulations but is highly efficient in its operation,” says Dr. Seyed M. Shameli, Product Development Engineer at Nett Technologies.
