SAE J1321 FUEL ECONOMY TESTING
Quantification of technology impact fully incorporating and
controlling variables. Used for on road vehicles.
Incorporates and controls variables on a vehicle; results in a +/-1%
margin of error. Utilizes Society of Automotive Engineers Type II
Fortune 1000 Company – Eco-Edge
assisted in validating a 10.5% reduction in fuel consumption
on a CAT C7 engine from use of Catalytic Aerosol Injection™. Company
is outfitting diesel vehicles in fleet with Catalytic Aerosol
Injection™ for fuel savings and emissions reduction.
Mixer & Aggregate Fleet –
Eco-Edge assisted in validating an 11.3% reduction in fuel
consumption on a Cummins ISM engine from use of Catalytic
Aerosol Injection™. Company has had more than 220 vehicles,
generators and off road equipment using Catalytic Aerosol Injection™ for several years.
Quantification of technology impact with controlled variables. Used
for on or off road vehicles/equipment.
Characteristics: Removes variables from impacting test; results
in a +/-3% margin of error. Tends to produce more conservative
results. Utilizes proprietary protocol and testing equipment.
Dairy/Agriculture Fleet – Eco-Edge assisted in
validating an 8.0% reduction in fuel consumption on a
John Deere 624 Front Loader from use of Catalytic Aerosol
Injection™. Company has been using Catalytic Aerosol Injection™ for
more than 2 years on all diesel trucks and off road equipment.
Hauling & Aggregate Fleet –
Eco-Edge assisted in validating an 8.0% reduction in fuel
consumption on a CAT 980G Loader with a 3406 engine from use
of Catalytic Aerosol Injection™, as well as a material reduction in
exhaust temperature. Company has been using Catalytic Aerosol
Injection™ for several years on its generators and off road
equipment, and has added its on road dirt hauling truck fleet.
Validation, not quantification, of technology impact in an operating
setting with limited control on variables. Used for on or off road
Little or no control on environment; tends to have extremely
high variability and requires substantial analysis to evaluate
impact of variables on results.
Scrap/Waste Hauling Fleet –
Eco-Edge helped verify that trucks traveling with consistent routes
and loads were seeing substantial savings, validating on road truck
standard of approximately 10% fuel savings generated by Catalytic
Aerosol Injection™. Fleet has been using Catalytic Aerosol
Injection™ for more than 3 years.
Grocery Tractor Trailer Fleet –
Eco-Edge conducted a stationary test demonstrating a 13.9% reduction
on a Detroit Diesel 60 Series engine using Catalytic Aerosol
Injection™. A 9 month operating test across 15 vehicles verified in
an uncontrolled environment that Catalytic Aerosol Injection™: 1)
did produce measurable fuel savings on a consistent basis; 2) caused
no harm to the vehicles; 3) reduced opacity by an average of 32%;
and 4) produced noticeably cleaner exhaust manifolds. Company is
implementing Catalytic Aerosol Injection™ fleet wide.
International Cement & Aggregate Company
– Eco-Edge installed Catalytic Aerosol Injection™ on a CAT 3516
generator operating a crusher. Independent emissions testing showed
a resulting 22% reduction in NOx, along with more than 40%
reductions in both VOCs and SOCs. Company has been able to
expand permitted operating hours at the site by approximately 25%
due to the NOx decrease, resulting in increased profitability, and
still reducing their overall environmental footprint.
OIL DRAIN INTERVALS
Mixer & Aggregate Fleet –
Eco-Edge has assisted company in evaluating HEPO bypass oil
filtration using oil analysis. Results show that their oil
drain intervals have been extended from 450 hours to 1,350 hours.
