Cleaire Advanced Emission Controls announced that the California Air Resources Board has approved an expansion of the previously verified Vista diesel particulate filter to cover a broad range of 1993 and newer model year engines.
The Cleaire Vista is a diesel particulate reduction system designed for a very broad range of on-road diesel engines and applications.
In particular, the verified control group include later model EGR and Caterpillar ACERT engines.
Effective as of Nov. 15, the CARB verification expansion allows the Vista to be installed on 1993 through 2010 model year engines from 2.7 to 13 liters having a power range of 100 to 450 horsepower.
The Vista is verified as a CARB Level 3-plus system, meaning it has successfully demonstrated diesel particulate matter emission reductions of greater than 85% while meeting the NO2 emission standard. The Vista has passed performance and reliability testing and is compliant with CARB verification requirements which are also recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The verification makes the Vista eligible for regulatory and incentive programs such as the CARB Fleet Rules, EPA DERA funding, and Federal CMAQ programs.
The Vista's proprietary active regeneration system, compact size and state of the art monitoring system make it a candidate for retrofitting a broad range of trucks and buses, especially those with colder or variable duty cycles.
