RigMaster Power Corp. has announced that all current models of the RigMaster APU are capable of operating on the ultra-low-sulfur diesel that recently entered the market. The company says all current RigMaster models built with either Perkins 402.05 Series Engine or the Caterpillar C0.5 engine are capable of running on ULSD, which has less than 15 ppm of sulfur.
“RigMaster has stayed on the leading edge of this matter,” says Gary Lisson, general manager of RigMaster. “We are very pleased to be working with two engine companies who are not only aware but are being proactive about solving the current issues that fleets and drivers are facing today.
Lisson says that with RigMaster’s nonintrusive design, a RigMaster installed on a current or older truck can be removed and installed on a new ULSD truck easily, without any worries. “I feel confident knowing that the product that we put out almost two years ago will still be viable in the years to come,” he says.
Market reports anticipate that ULSD will burn 1 percent more per gallon than the diesel on the market today, with cost estimates at anywhere from 5-13 cents more per gallon. “That’s just one more reason to look into a fuel-saving device such as the RigMaster Power APU,” Lisson says. “A higher-priced fuel with a lower fuel economy means fleets and drivers alike will be looking even harder for a way to save money.”
