Exhaust back-pressure (EBP) sensors from Kavlico improve engine performance and efficiency by protecting the engine from over-pressure damage in systems with or without a diesel particulate filter (DPF). EBP emissions sensors provide diagnostic information to the engine control unit for regeneration of the DPF. The sensors can withstand operating temperatures of -15 to +125°C (5 to 257°F). Features include Kavlico's calibration and compensation methods, ceramic capacitive sense elements, stainless steel housings, and custom configurations. The sensors operate on a 5-V dc power supply with pressure ranges of 0 to 5.8 and 0 to 7.975 psi (0 to 0.4 and 0 to 0.55 bar). Low power consumption and hysteresis, humidity tolerance, and short circuit and reverse polarity protection make the sensors suitable for exhaust environments with severe vibration and caustic soot and acids.

Christopher Grundler, the Director of OTAQ for the U.S. EPA, answered questions about Phase 2 rule-making for heavy trucks, global harmonization of emissions regulations, and his outlook for a new national NOx standard. Grundler will be the featured speaker on opening day of the SAE 2017 Government/Industry Meeting taking place January 25-27 in Washington D.C.
Making off-highway equipment, such as construction or agriculture machines, more efficient continues to be a priority after the final phase-in of the U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emissions regulations. “Some of the companies we work with are running out of credits and unfortunately still struggling with Tier 4,” explained Tristan Donley, Technical Director, Off-Highway Heavy Vehicles North American for Exa, a supplier of software for computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
