The Most Important Elements To Cleaner Air
The Miracle Paradox of the Rentar Fuel Catalyst
Construction Equipment Magazine, the industry’s leading construction magazine/online-newsletter/blog source, posted an article on its website late last year titled, “Another Piece in the Emissions Puzzle.” The premise of the article is that new oils and government regulations developed and passed to combat greenhouse-gas emissions, “are just the latest steps in the battle for cleaner air.”
In the article, CE’s editorial director Rod Sutton commended engine makers and manufacturers for “what they’ve accomplished with the technologies that have been developed.”
“[New oils] and forthcoming regulations on greenhouse gas emissions are just the latest steps in the battle for cleaner air that has been causing consternation for the past 15 years,” Sutton continued.
“But, ” Sutton explains, “that hasn’t made it any easier to manage fleets.”
According to Sutton, increases in acquisition cost and changes in maintenance-management strategies are detouring fleet and equipment managers from investing in Tier 4 equipment.
Tier 4 Engines and New Regulations
Tier 4 is the government mandated reduction in harmful exhaust gases for diesel-powered equipment. Tier 4 engines are equipped with after-treatment devices like diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and diesel particulate filters (DPF).
“The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is a product of the Clean Air Act, which requires the agency to monitor air quality and eliminate threats to human health. Two major components of diesel exhaust lead to the EPA’s regulating diesel emissions. Oxides of nitrogen (NOx) combine with ground-level ozone and other pollutants to form smog, and particulate matter (PM), or soot, has been found to be a serious lung irritant and potential carcinogen,” explains Curt Bennink and Larry Stewart of ForConstructionPros.com.
Naturally, fleet and equipment managers assume that exhaust reduction devices are expensive.
In fact, exhaust reducing devices — one pre-combustion device in particular — can actually make operating equipment less expensive.
Emissions Reduction Can Also Mean Fuel Cost Reduction
It is true, most emissions reducing devices reduce fuel efficiency — gas mileage and gallons used per hour of operation, diesel particulate filters in particular. “While effectively removing particulates, these devices also diminish fuel efficiency through increased exhaust system backpressure,” the U.S. Department of Energy explains in a 2010 report titled “Fuel Efficient Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Modeling and Development.”
But the Rentar Fuel Catalyst is a mechanical, pre-combustion device designed to increase fuel efficiency. Coincidentally, the Rentar also reduces emissions at unparalleled rates.
Cut Costs Dramatically and Reduce Emissions More Dramatically with Rentar
The Rentar can increase fuel efficiency by between 3 percent and 12 percent depending on the engine type and use.
More importantly — at least with respect to government regulations — the Rentar Fuel Catalyst reduces black smoke by 44 percent, CO2 emissions by the same amount as fuel consumption is reduced as per the EPA’s carbon balance method. and particulate matter by almost 20 percent as well.
With respect to CO, NO, Nox and SO2, again, the Rentar Fuel Catalyst reduces emissions by almost 20 percent. Elemental and organic carbons are reduced by 35 percent. As for cancer-causing volatile organics, the Rentar Fuel Catalyst reduces benzene, toluene, and acetaldehyde by more than 35 percent; xylenes by more than 46 percent; 1-ethyl-2-methyl benzene by 49 percent; and 1, 2, 3 trimethylbenzene by 58.7 percent.
The Impossible Truth of the Rentar Guaranteed
So confident is Rentar in its fuel-efficiency device that the company guarantees its fuel catalyst will pay for itself within one year. And, as the Rentar Fuel Catalyst is a mechanical device with no moving parts made of a copper casing enclosing true-catalyst, precious-metal cells, the Rentar will theoretically last forever. Every Rentar comes with a 10-year warranty.
Simply put, there are no emissions-reducing devices on the market like the Rentar.
Cut fuel costs by between 5 percent and 25 percent on engines, and 30 percent on boilers and furnaces, and reduce emissions of particulates and gases at the same time.
