Retrofit System for Emission Reduction for Volvo Engines
Volvo Construction Equipment has entered into a strategic partnership with HUSS, LLC, a leading specialist in diesel particle filtration and systems for exhaust aftertreatment, to provide retrofit systems for Volvo construction equipment that will significantly reduce exhaust emissions and make the air we breathe cleaner.
The partnership is based on an agreement between Volvo headquarters in Sweden and HUSS headquarters in Switzerland which will make the HUSS systems also available for Volvo Trucks, Mack Trucks, Volvo Penta, and Volvo Bus engine retrofit applications on a global basis.
The HUSS system is verified to meet California's CARB Level 3 requirements (minimum 85% particulate collection), and Volvo equipment owners using the system will be able to meet the "In-Use Off-Road Diesel Vehicle Regulation", New York Local Law 77 and future pending legislation.
The HUSS retrofit system for Volvo equipment is capable of collecting up to 99% of diesel particulate matter (PM) emissions, substantially exceeding the CARB requirements. Volvo CE will begin its engine retrofit program immediately, utilizing the HUSS MK exhaust aftertreatment system. Active filter regeneration, through an integrated fuel burner system, typically takes place after approximately 8 to 10 operating hours and is completed in 5 to 35 minutes. Engine exhaust backpressure is set to Volvo requirements. In addition to the reduction of PM, there is no increase of NO2 or other secondary emissions.
The HUSS technology is also adaptable to high-horsepower equipment (up to 700 hp) providing reliable double-filter installations. Applications of the HUSS systems include construction and mining equipment, industrial and refuse trucks, transit and school buses, heavy-duty on-highway vehicles and stationary generator sets.
Volvo dealers will be able to guide their customers through the selection of the proper retrofit system, following expert evaluation of machine application and duty cycle.
