PSI Earns EPA & CARB Certification on 2.0-Liter & 2.4-Liter Engines
The newly certified engines enable mobile industrial equipment OEMs to produce low emission products that meet increasingly stringent CARB/
As the Manufacturer of Record, PSI takes all emission certification responsibility for the engines, as well as for engineering and applications support. The engines utilize controls, diagnostic and service platforms common to PSI's entire product line.
"PSI is committed to producing engines that meet our customers' highest performance demands, while also protecting the environment," said
PSI developed the 2.0-Liter and 2.4-Liter engines as low-emission forklift engines filling a much needed gap in the industry. These new displacements operate at lower speeds for better fuel efficiency.
Starting with a proven base engine, PSI has upgraded select components to further improve the durability of the valvetrain. Premium valve seat inserts extend the valvetrain life to well beyond 10,000 hours when operating on gaseous fuels, while the premium camshaft and balance shaft belts extend the service interval to 5,000 hours on these components. The company has leveraged advanced fuel systems and controls to further enhance the engines' overall operation and durability. State of the art fuel controls enable seamless operation on gaseous fuels or gasoline while minimizing emission levels. The 58X crank / 1X cam position sensing for the ignition system optimizes engine performance and startability, while the inlet side thermostat enables faster warm-up and reduced thermal cycling after a cold start. Both 2.0-Liter and 2.4-Liter engines incorporate a balance shaft and structural bearing ladder for reduced noise and vibration compared to the predecessor engines.
With the certified 2.0-Liter and 2.4-Liter engines, PSI expands its product line of mobile industrial equipment power systems. The company adds these new certifications to a long list of CARB/
PSI develops and delivers complete .97 to 22 liter power systems, including the new 8.8 liter engine aimed at the industrial and on-highway markets including; medium duty fleets, delivery trucks, school buses and garbage/refuse trucks. PSI power systems are currently used worldwide in power generators, forklifts, aerial lifts, and industrial sweepers, as well as in oil and gas, aircraft ground support, agricultural and construction equipment.
