Retrofit Emission Control Device (RECD)

The pressing issue of rising levels of air pollution has become a grave concern that continues to have far-reaching consequences on the environment and significant health risks, particularly in developing nations. The impact of air pollution cannot be underestimated. Its adverse effects on the ozone layer and public health are alarming, demanding our immediate consideration and united efforts.

In response to this alarming situation, the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India, released the National Clean Air Programme (NCAP) on 31st December 2018, while the National Green Tribunal mandated the use of Retrofit Emission Control Device (RECD) for reducing Air Pollution from Diesel Generators, as per their Order O.A. No. 681/2018 dated 6th August 2019.

Recognizing the urgent need for a solution, Kirloskar Oil Engines Ltd., a renowned manufacturer of Diesel engines and generator sets, has introduced an effective remedy – the Retrofit Emission Control Device (RECD) designed for Diesel Generators ranging from 125 kVA to 1000 kVA. Our Kirloskar RECD stands out as an innovative technology capable of significantly reducing exhaust emissions. Through Oxidation and Passive Regenerative Trap principles, it achieves an impressive 70% to 90% reduction in Diesel Particulate Matter (DPM) emissions, and a minimum of 70% reduction in other harmful pollutants like Hydrocarbons & Carbon Monoxide.

Moreover, the Kirloskar RECD aligns perfectly with the guidelines set forth by the National Green Tribunal, boasting a reduction efficiency of over 70% for Particulate Matter (PM), Carbon Monoxide (CO), and Hydrocarbons (HC). This accomplishment has been validated by CPCB accredited labs, ensuring compliance with stringent emission standards.

The Kirloskar RECD boasts an impressive lifespan of 10 to 12 years or 40,000 hours, promising reliable performance and longevity. It also maintains noise levels well within permissible CPCB limits, while requiring low maintenance, only once every 6 months or 500 hours. Furthermore, our RECD has been thoughtfully designed to prevent adverse effects on the engine by maintaining low back pressure within permissible limits. Its compact size eliminates the need for additional floor space, making it a highly convenient and space-efficient solution.

At Kirloskar Oil Engines Ltd., they prioritize their customers' satisfaction and peace of mind. Thus, we provide a comprehensive solution package for our RECD, including Pre-supply checks and Support, Supply and Installation, Testing and Handover, and a one-year warranty. Our solution represents a cutting-edge approach towards addressing air pollution and promoting environmental compliance.
