The Importance Of Retrofits

in Blog

Are you looking for a way to make your vehicles compliant with environmental regulations and emissions standards? Do you want to do it without replacing your entire fleet? Retrofits are the answer.

What is retrofitting?

Retrofitting is replacing old parts with new parts or equipment that wasn’t available when the original item was manufactured. Computers, buildings, machinery, and vehicles can all be retrofitted.

In the case of vehicles, retrofitting is used to reduce emissions.

Why is retrofitting important?

Diesel vehicles are essential to the transportation industry and to the economy, but they can take a hefty toll on the environment. Retrofitting vehicles drastically reduces emissions.

This technology prevents harmful chemicals such as nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons, and carbon monoxide from being released into the air. These chemicals harm the environment and cause health problems. Retrofitting allows fleet owners to reduce vehicle emissions and comply with federal and state regulations.

What options are available?

There are many retrofitting services available. The retrofit you choose will depend on your fleet, the age of your vehicles, where you drive, what you haul, and more.  Common retrofits include:

  • Diesel Particulate Filters
  • Selective Catalytic Reduction
  • Diesel Oxidation Catalysts
  • and more!
