Volvo Construction
In late 2008, Volvo Construction Equipment entered into a strategic partnership with HUSS LLC, to provide retrofit systems for Volvo construction equipment that will significantly reduce exhaust emissions. The HUSS MK system now has final approval from California for Volvo Tier 3 IEGR-equipped machines in that state.

The HUSS MK system, approved for use on Volvo engines utilizing V-ACT technology with internal exhaust gas recirculation (IEGR), meets California’s CARB Level 3+ requirements. Volvo equipment owners can utilize the system to help comply with the “In-Use Off-Road Diesel Vehicle Regulation” or to provide the best available control technology (BACT) for the newest machines in owners’ fleets. Previously, engines using any type of EGR had been excluded from applying exhaust retrofit technology in California. This has now changed with the recent system verification by the state.

The retrofit system is equipped with a HUSS Control Unit that constantly monitors filter function to precisely control diesel PM loading and regeneration. This is an active filter regeneration system, accomplished through an integrated fuel burner system.

The HUSS technology is adaptable to low and high-horsepower equipment (up to 700 horsepower) providing reliable installations for both rubber tired and tracked machines. With the active system, there is no need to be concerned with exhaust temperature profiles, changing duty cycles, ULSD fuel, stocking extra filters or incur undue downtime swapping filters due to the clogging and cleaning cycle of misapplied passive systems. 828.650.2309, www.volvo.com
