Caterpillar Inc. has received certification from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for its C13 and C15 engines equipped with ACERT Technology for 2007.
ACERT Technology relies on air management, precision combustion, advanced electronics and effective aftertreatment to lower emissions. The four systems work to decrease particulate matter, nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbon emissions while preserving the engine’s reliability and durability, according to Caterpillar.
The new C13 is available in on-highway vocational and heavy-duty line-haul configurations. In addition to truck, bus, recreational vehicle and fire truck ratings, the C15 provides a high horsepower and torque rating for owner-operators and heavy haulers working in the most extreme heavy-duty applications.
