also driving the need for constant product innovation, so we are increas- ing our agility to respond with new products that solve our customers’ emissions-control needs,” he added. Volanakis announced that the new organization will be led by Thomas R. Hinman, senior vice president and general manager, Environmental Technologies. Corning has also been named a Diamond Supplier for the second con- secutive year by Navistar Inc. This award recognizes Navistar’s suppli- ers for meeting or exceeding Navistar’s performance expectations for quality, delivery and cost. Navistar’s Diamond Supplier award is given to suppliers who strategically align with the company’s business goals, while also demonstrating a com- mitment to continuous improvement. Diamond Suppliers collaborate techni- cally and commercially with Navistar and play an integral role in growing Navistar’s business. In addition, Diamond Suppliers deliver products of distinction to mutual end customers. Corning and Navistar announced that Corning will provide Navistar with advanced, diesel emissions-control products that will enable Navistar to meet the EPA 2010 regulations. The multiyear agreement is for the supply of Corning emissions-control products for medium- and heavy-duty Navistar MaxxForce diesel engines used in Navistar’s International brand trucks for North America.
Cummins Filtration’s Direct Flow filter uses a rectangular “V-Block” configura- tion that optimizes space normally wast- ed in the inner diameter of a typical cylindrical air filter configuration. The total dust-holding capacity increases, and the physical size of the product can be decreased by up to 50% for a given dust capacity, Cummins said. This design also provides the ability to mount the air cleaner in a location previously not suitable with cylindrical air cleaners. As well as minimizing space, the Direct Flow technology is designed to offer better engine protection and lower maintenance costs. Also included are extended air filter life and extra protec- tion with optional pre-cleaner and sec- ondary filter. The filter is also engi- neered to be rust free and optimized for the most rugged environments. The Direct Flow air intake system has been designed and integrated with Cummins off-highway engines to pro- vide customers with enhanced engine performance and optimized costs for Tier 4 interim applications. More than 100 integrated Tier 4 systems will be delivered to customers with the Direct Flow air intake system by early 2010, Cummins said.

X Sootfilter DPF system reduces PM emissions by 85% or greater and meets the January 2009 NO2 limit (Level 3 Plus) for stationary prime and emergency standby (E/S) generators powered by certified Tier 1, Tier 2 or Tier 3 off-road engines that are certi- fied to a PM emissions limit of less than or equal to 0.15 g/bhp-hr. DCL has also received CARB Level 3 Plus verification for its Mine-X Sootfilter system for off-road vehicles using off-road diesel engines.
DONALDSON CO. Donaldson Co. has received Level 3 Plus verification by CARB for two new on-road emissions retrofit devices. The new approvals extend the LNF muffler system verification for select high NOx engines and verify the new LXF muffler system for select low NOx engines. CARB extended the previously veri- fied Donaldson Low NO2 Filter (LNF) muffler system to cover additional high NOx 1993 through 2006 model-year diesel engines. The extension added engine families between 100 and 150 hp and high NOx 2002 to 2006 en- gines used in on-road applications. CARB verified the Donaldson Low NOx Filter (LXF) muffler system for select 2002 to 2006 model-year diesel engines used in on-road applications. The verification covers select low NOx engine families that did not come from the OEM with an oxidation catalyst. “We are pleased to have received the CARB verification and verification extension of both our LNF and LXF muffler systems,” said Fred Schmidt, director of Donaldson Retrofit Emis- sions. “We are pursuing a final verifica- tion extension for the LXF muffler sys- tem to cover low NOx engines with OEM oxidation catalysts and hope to obtain that approval in the next couple of months. Once verified, these prod- ucts will provide broad engine coverage for vehicles subject to the upcoming regulatory deadlines of the California Diesel Risk Reduction Program.” The LNF and LXF muffler systems
