Generators powered by EPA compliant engines

Sponsored by

Carson, Calif.—Multiquip has anounced that four new generator models, powered by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) compliant Tier4i engines announced earlier this year, are now shipping.
These new MQ Power models are the DCA150SSC (150Kva), DCA180SSC (180Kva), DCA220SSC (220Kva) and DCA300SSC (300Kva).  Each is equipped with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) to trap particulate matter, or soot, from the diesel engine exhaust.
“With the DPF, the new units produce zero grams per brake horsepower-hour (gr/bhp-hr). This is a significant improvement when compared to previous models that produced between 0.07 to 0.015 gr/bhp-hr,” said Torsten Erbel, vice president product management, engineering and customer support for Multiquip. “We continue to be a leader in sound attenuation, fuel efficiency and reliable portable power.”
The self-cleaning design uses a regeneration process, manual or automatic, to burn off accumulated soot once it reaches its factory set limit. The manual option allows the operator to select the best time to begin regeneration. Visual indicators and diagnostic troubleshooting are provided in the control panel to alert the operator.
The generator control panel is designed for operator convenience and ease of operation. The panel is equipped with both analog and digital controls. Analog displays provide quick readings of key performance areas such as oil pressure, water temperature, battery charging, fuel level and engine RPM, while digital displays provide clear readouts of engine and DPF performance.
The portable power generators are driven by advanced diesel engines that easily meet the more stringent 2011 Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 4i standards, while providing superior performance and reliability.
The EPA has adopted a comprehensive national program to reduce emissions from future non-road diesel engines by integrating engine and fuel controls as a system to gain emission reductions. To meet these emission standards, engine manufacturers are producing new engines with advanced emission-control technologies similar to those already under deployment for highway trucks and buses. Exhaust emissions from these engines will decrease by more than 95 percent compared to current diesel engines.
These reductions in nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) emissions from non-road diesel engines will provide enormous public health benefits. The EPA estimates that controlling these emissions would annually prevent 12,000 premature deaths, 8,900 hospitalizations and one million lost work days.

How to deploy mobile forms + devices to speed up field service processes & reporting

Overcoming the pain points associated with any process is much simpler and more cost effective than you think. This webinar will detail the benefits of switching to mobile forms for field data collection and reporting.
We'll examine real use cases and ROI of integrating mobile forms within a given field service process, including for work orders, inspections, checklists and proposals.
A quick AT&T Mobile Forms demo will reveal the feature rich, user-friendly nature of the solution. You'll see why it’s a must-deploy to speed up data collection, eliminate invoicing/data entry lags and auto-generate/deliver insightful reports.
