Reciprocating Engines: Stationary

Solberg designs and manufactures high efficiency open and closed Crankcase Ventilation Systems to capture hazardous oil mist and particulate emissions (blow-by) vented from the crankcase of stationary reciprocating engines and gen-sets.  These systems ensure environmental compliance and protect the surrounding workplace. 

In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency’s s RICE NESHAP standard is very specific when addressing crankcase emissions for most non-emergency, stationary, compression ignition (diesel) reciprocating engines over 300 HP.  Owners and Operators of engines operating without a crankcase ventilation system must do one of the following prior to May 2013: (1) Install a closed crankcase ventilation system that prevents crankcase emissions from being emitted to the atmosphere, or (2) install an open crankcase ventilation system that reduces emissions from the crankcase by filtering the exhaust stream to remove oil mist and hazardous particulate emissions. 

The Crankcase Ventilation Systems also allow Operators to protect their engine equipment.  Whether using a closed or open crankcase style, Solberg’s System controls crankcase pressure and prevents seal leaks via manual or automatic controls.  Also, these protect the engine’s turbo and intake system from oil mist and particulate contamination.  The results are optimized engine performance and a reduction in costly engine repairs.   

See here how Solberg's Crankcase Ventilation System helped NRG Energy achieve RICE NESHAP compliance for their reciprocating engine in this article from Power Engineering.
