This EPA Tier 4F unit can save in operating costs than high-pressure pumps with non-compliant engines.
New UltraGreen high-pressure water jet pump units, the latest convertible units from NLB Corp., feature environmentally-friendly Tier 4F engines that comply with the latest EPA emissions regulations and can reduce operating costs.
In addition to reducing exhaust emissions, the advanced engine technology in UltraGreen units significantly improves fuel efficiency and increases torque, making it practical for pump units with smaller engines to handle bigger jobs. The annual operating costs for an UltraGreen unit can be less than for a larger pump unit with a non-certified engine.
NLB offers an UltraGreen package on many of its 30 convertible high-pressure pump units. All feature high efficiency, easy maintenance and fast conversion to a variety of operating pressures, often up to 40,000 psi (2,760 bar). Units are trailer-mounted for easy towing to job sites, and are available for sale or rent at NLB’s six regional U.S. branches.
“UltraGreen units are a great value because they meet market demands for EPA compliance with outstanding water jet performance,” said Jim Van Dam, NLB’s director of product development and marketing. “They are certified as satisfying the stringent Tier 4F standards that took effect in January, which limit nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions to 10 percent of the level allowable 20 years ago, and particulate matter to five percent of the old level.”
Tier 4F certification is already required in California and in all areas of the United States where EPA air quality standards have not yet been attained, and substantial fines can be levied for non-compliance. Certification is also required to qualify for DOT and public works projects in a number of states and localities, and is expected to become a national standard. UltraGreen units can be used in all 50 states.
NLB Corp., a global leader in high-pressure and ultra-high pressure water jet systems, manufactures a full line of quality water jet pump units and accessories for contractor and industrial uses. Applications include product removal, tube and pipe cleaning, tank cleaning, tube bundle cleaning, drill pipe cleaning, surface preparation, pavement marking and runway rubber removal, concrete hydrodemolition, concrete and pipe cutting, and more.
