Caterpillar has the right environmental solutions for your on-highway vehicles. Backed by the reliability and performance of Peterson Power Systems, these solutions reduce emissions and are tailored to fit a wide range of diesel engines.
- Oxidation Catalysts create a chemical reaction with exhaust gases as they pass over the catalyst material. This reaction reduces some of the particulate matter and converts a large portion of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and other emissions into carbon dioxide and water.
- Diesel Particulate Filters use special filters to reduce particulate matter (PM), carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon emissions. Exhaust backpressure is maintained through passive regeneration, a process that automatically removes particulate buildup.
CAT Diesel Particulate Filter solutions include diagnostic module for backpressure, exhaust temperature monitoring and datalogging.
The type of solution appropriate for a specific application depends on the configuration of the vehicle's exhaust system and the specific emissions targeted by applicable emissions regulations.
