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
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
