The BlueMAX PLUS 100 system consists of a passive diesel particulate filter followed by a urea SCR system."The BlueMAX PLUS 100 is a great retrofit emission control solution for non-road engines certified to Tier 1, 2 or 3 emission standards. The system is a durable and versatile emission control solution that extends the years of usage of existing construction and non-road equipment. Thanks largely to its direct-fit design, the system not only meets the latest regulations but is highly efficient in its operation," says Dr. Seyed M. Shameli, Product Development Engineer at Nett Technologies.As an innovator of non-road emission control systems, Nett Technologies Inc. has more than 20 years of experience in the design, development and manufacturing of custom retrofit solutions that control Particulate Matter (PM), Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), Hydrocarbons (HC), and Carbon Monoxide (CO) emissions from all compression and spark-ignited engines.For more information, visit Nett Technologies online at www.nettinc.com.
