ORLANDO: Cummins Inc. announced the release of Clean Idle Certified on-highway engines here at the Technology and Maintenance Council (TMC) annual meeting. The engines are designed to meet the new California Air Resources Board (CARB) idle reduction standards by generating less than 30-g/hr. NOx emissions when idling.
According to the company, customers can specify a 50-state Clean Idle Certified engine option when ordering or can opt to update existing 2007 engines to meet the 50-state status.
Cummins also announced the release of two new ComfortGuard APU solutions at the meeting, also aimed at CARB idle reduction regulations. The company said the products are available with two options to meet the emissions standards, a stand-alone particulate filter on the ComfortGuard APU engine or an engine installation kit to route the ComfortGuard diesel exhaust gas into the particulate filter.
The ComfortGuard APUs feature a two-cylinder diesel engine and a Cummins alternator, producing 4,000 watts at 120 volts, paying for itself in 18 months or less through saved power, the company said.
