Rypos Active DPF/CTM Diesel Particulate Filter Verified by California Air Resources Board (CARB)

CARB Certifies Rypos Active DPF/CTM Diesel Particulate Filter for Tier 3 and Older Rubber Tire Gantry Crane Applications
June 7, 2011 - PRLog -- TORRANCE, Calif.— The Air Resources Board (ARB) has verified the Rypos active diesel particulate filter (Active DPF/CTM) for certified Tier 3 or older diesel engines used in rubber tired gantry (RTG) crane applications operating on CARB Diesel fuel.  The Rypos
Active DPF/C active diesel particulate filter uses an electrically regenerating filter followed by a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) to significantly reduce particulate matter, emissions qualifying it for Level 2 Plus verification.

A rubber tired gantry crane (RTG) is a mobile gantry crane used for stacking intermodal containers within a container terminal or storage yard. The Level 2+ verification means that the system will reduce diesel particulate matter (PM) emissions by 50 percent or more and meets the January 2009 NO2 limit. The Rypos All Active DPF/C is the first verified emission control strategy (VDEC) specific to RTG’s designated higher than Level 1. Now, port and rail yard terminal operators utilizing diesel powered RTG’s will be able to fully comply with CARB’s final regulation order, Section 2479, Regulation For Mobile Cargo Handling Equipment At Ports and Intermodal Rail Yards.  Additional information on the verification for the Rypos Active DPF/CTM may be found in the CARB Executive Order.

The Rypos Active DPF/C has been successfully used on RTG transtainers at a major California terminal for over 3000 hours since 2008 with no downtime or maintenance required according to a terminal spokesperson. Based on the performance, the terminal intends to install the Rypos technology on all owned RTGs.

Rypos’ proprietary Active DPF technology utilizes smart monitoring systems to predict when a system will need cleaning and initiates an electrical regeneration cycle well before the back pressure reaches levels considered unhealthy. The filter is regenerated using electric current to heat the element causing the collected soot to burn. When the Rypos Active DPF/C is used in conjunction with a diesel oxidation catalyst as verified in the ARB Executive Order, it reduces the soluble organic fraction, gaseous hydrocarbons, and carbon monoxide by more than 50 percent. The average power consumption is less than one percent of the rated power of the engine.

The California Air Resources Board, also known as CARB or ARB, is the "clean air agency" in the government of California. Established in 1967 in the Mulford-Carrell Act, California is the only state that is permitted to have such a regulatory agency, since it is the only state that had one before the passage of the federal Clean Air Act. The stated goals of CARB include attaining and maintaining healthy air quality; protecting the public from exposure to toxic air contaminants; and providing innovative approaches for complying with air pollution rules and regulations. Other states are permitted to follow CARB standards, or use the federal ones, but not set their own.

About the ARB Verification Procedure
The Regulation for the Verification Procedure for In-Use Strategies to Control Emissions from Diesel Engines was created and adopted in 2002. The goal of the Verification Procedure is to ensure that verified systems produce emissions reductions consistent with the verification level and that they are durable and compatible with various engines and applications.  Additional information on the regulation is available from the ARB.
