Crankcase Ventilation for Data Center: CAT C175-16

The Challenge

A power systems dealer required a quick turn around on a closed crankcase ventilation solution for over 40 Caterpillar C175-16 engines. This would bring the total number of closed crankcase ventilation systems required to over 80 in a very short amount of time. The new solution had to integrate into the existing generator set platform with minimal modification. The engines would be used for standby / emergency power at a new data

The Solution

Solberg utilized its ACV Series Advanced Crankcase Ventilation System as a readily available and economical solution. Solberg was able to apply its base model ACV and build a specific component kit tailored to the engine and the power systems dealer streamlining the installation process.


With the Solberg ACV (Advanced Crankcase Ventilation) complete installation kit designed for this power systems dealer, they were able to successfully meet all testing and delivery dates with very minimal modification to the existing generator set platform.
