Cummins Filtration, a wholly owned business unit of Cummins Inc., recently was awarded the Engineering Merit Award from the American Filtration & Separations Society for its Fleetguard Closed Crankcase Ventilation (CCV) System. The system is designed to remove emissions from open crankcase breather systems and reduce oil drip, mist and fumes in the engine compartment.
“We are honored to receive this meritorious award in recognition of the outstanding work of our research and development engineers in air system technology,” says Cindy Moore, vice president and general manager of Cummins Filtration’s air technology business unit. “Our strong commitment to green products and environmental protection drove the design of the Fleetguard CCV system.”
The award was presented at the AFS Awards Luncheon during the organization’s 20th conference and exhibition, held recently at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.
