Cummins India Limited launches Retrofit Emission Control Device
Date: 22 Aug 2022
Cummins India Limited, one of the leading power solutions company that designs, manufactures, distributes, and services engines and related technologies, launched an innovative clear air solution–Retrofit Emission Control Device (RECD)in collaboration with Pi Green Innovations Pvt. Ltd.
The product was launched at the Cummins India Office Campus in Pune in the presence of Ms.Shveta Arya, Vice President–Distribution Business & New and Recon Parts Organization (DBU & NRPO) Cummins India, and Irfan Pathan, Founder & CEO, Pi Green Innovations Pvt. Ltd.
As a part of this contract, with Pi Green Innovations Pvt. Ltd. Cummins will be marketing RECD through its vast distribution network in India. RECD is built on filterless technology and based on Electrostatic Precipitation fundamentals. It is highly efficient in improving air quality and capturing Particulate Matter (PM) from the air with more than 70% efficiency.
RECD’s clear air filterless solution does not require manual cleaning as there is no choking. One of the key advantages o this device is minimal back pressure which ensures the safety of the Cummins engine. This device also does not need any water, chemicals, or solvents and saves energy as it does not require active regeneration and is not affected by exhaust temperature. It is resistant to a wide range of in-use DG set conditions, and remote installation is also possible. The RECD is installed after the DG exhaust (muffler/silencer), and no modifications to the exhaust are required. The separated particulate matter can be collected and used as a high-value raw material in the paint, dye, and plastics industries, eliminating the need for disposal and secondary contamination. The product is all weatherproof, needs minimal maintenance with a simple, efficient, and sturdy construction that provides constant performance and long operational life.
