PM Technologies offers emissions testing for commercial generators to certify compliance with local and national emissions standards established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). We have the capability to test any make and model of generator to ensure it meets these standards. Beyond these important regulations, emissions testing is also essential to preserving the health of your generator’s engine and ensuring optimal function in an emergency power situation.
All internal combustion engines - including utility equipment like generators - create pollution as a by-product of burning fossil fuels to produce energy. The EPA has a number of regulatory standards in place to reduce the number of pollutants emitted by such equipment. As the EPA enforces emissions standards more consistently, it is imperative to understand how these regulations affect the emergency power system used by your facility. Failure to comply with these standards can result in hefty fines or even legal action taken against your organization.
Most newly manufactured generators comply with federal emissions standards. However, some municipalities have more restrictive standards in place that may require additional testing. It is important to emissions test older generators, because they may not meet the new EPA standards. PM Tech can generate an emissions report on your generator – If your generator does not meet the EPA standards, our experts can recommend the best course of action to bring your generator up to local and national EPA standards.
Our commercial generator emissions testing process detects five different types of gasses in the exhaust: hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and oxygen. Defining which gases are in the exhaust can help us determine if the engine is getting the right mixture of air and fuel that’s most effective for your generator. If the mixture is incorrect, it can be catastrophic to your engine. Contact our team today to keep your generator engine healthy and compliant!
