Industrial Application: Emission Control Systems for Power Generating Products

What is an emission control system?

This type of system effectively combines all the emissions-related components of an engine into one comprehensive control system that can keep emissions in compliance to government regulations.

How does it work?

In some applications the overall system is comprised of an engine, a 3-way catalyst and air/fuel ratio control. Oxygen (O2) sensors read post-catalyst exhaust composition while pressure sensors monitor airflow and the readings automatically adjust the engine’s air/fuel ratio, keeping the catalyst operating efficiently even as speed, load and ambient conditions change.
