COLUMBUS, Ind. — Cummins is now offering owners of its engines an electronic calibration that it says will lower levels of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions.
These calibrations will be available on 1996 to 1998 Cummins M11 Plus or N14 Plus engines.
Cummins says the initiative is its first offering as part of a voluntary low NOx program.
The company says the calibration will lower NOx levels “immediately, with no reduction in performance or reliability.”
Cummins’ distributors or authorized dealers are able to upload the electronic calibrations “in just minutes.”
Along similar lines, the company also says it has developed a “cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) technology” which meet “future emissions requirements.”
It notes those requirements “are legislated at 2.5 grams NOx, plus non-methane hydrocarbon.”
The company notes that it is currently field testing the technology on medium-duty and heavy-duty engines.
