In July 2017, The Pro Group began offering Clean Emissions Products Inc. to better meet customers’ environmental and regulation limitations. Rick Poirier, Operations Manager, is the liaison between The Pro Group and Clean Emissions. Read the following interview to learn more about Clean Emissions products and how you can utilize them in your equipment.
Q: What are the new catalytic converters mentioned on the web site?
A: A catalytic converter is an emissions control device that converts toxic gases & pollutants in exhaust gases to less toxic pollutants. These Clean Emission converters reduce carbon monoxide by up to 99%, Hydro carbons by up to 90% , Diesel particulate matter by up to 95% & nitrogen oxide by up to 99%.
Q: How are catalysts installed?
A: Catalysts units are available in an “in-line” or muffler type configuration. An in line unit can be mounted at any location available within the engine exhaust system either before or after the existing muffler.
Another option is the muffler configuration. Clean emissions can take an existing muffler, cut it open and install the proper components. They then weld it back together. The catalytic muffler can now be installed back into the equipment. We also offer Honda catalytic mufflers which are a direct replacement to Honda OEM mufflers.
Q: How did you get involved with Clean Emissions & scrubbers?
A: We partnered with Clean Emissions after years of building a solid relationship monitoring OSHA & EPA tier 3 & 4 emissions requirements. We also react to the requests presented to us by our customers who find the need to operate equipment indoors safely.
Q: What type of equipment would benefit from a converter?
A: All types of gas, diesel and liquid propane engines would benefit from a catalytic muffler. Clean emissions catalytic line up has the capabilities of covering our entire product line from compactors to backhoes & everything in between.
Q: Why did you choose Clean Emissions as your Catalytic supplier?
A: Clean Emissions is a Canadian based company that fully understood and presented to us the solution to a problem heading our way before anyone else. We were prepared when our customers called requesting equipment to meet Tier 3 or Tier 4 emission standards. We also had a solution to offer our customers a catalytic converter on our rental equipment when they needed to run gas engines inside a building. This helped put us ahead of our completion offering a solution to a problem which enabled our customers to be more productive.
Also, the quality of their in-line stainless steel units & the small profile makes installation very easy. The in-line units only need to be clamped into place with exhaust clamps. The workmanship on the catalytic mufflers is also impressive. We have never had a manufacturer premature unit failure. The replacement Honda catalytic mufflers are just a bolt off and bolt on set up.
Clean emissions also understood the benefit of working with the Pro Group giving us such a large new England territory. They understood that our 4 locations, outside sales team, inside sales team and our parts & service department understand the product line & need making us a true resource to our customers because after all our success depends on our customers success.
