Cat C32 ACERT hazardous location engines are the ideal solution for specialized and demanding operations in the oilfield. Engines are hazardous-location certified from the factory to minimize installation design, time, and cost. Decades of field operation and intense research and development allow Cat C32 ACERT hazardous location engines to deliver excellent performance with low operating costs and emissions. Hazardous location engines are certified to operate in potentially explosive environments. Applications powered by C32 ACERT engines include well stimulation pumping, pump skids, nitrogen units, acidizing units, blenders, and hydraulic power units. Cat engines are backed by the worldwide network of Cat dealers ready to support your operation with technical support, service, parts, and warranty. C32 ACERT hazardous location engines, with ratings 597-828 bkW (800-1110 bhp) @ 2100 rpm meet IMO Tier II, U.S. EPA Marine Tier 2, and U.S. EPA Non-road Tier 2 equivalent emission standards. They are available using U.S. EPA and EU Flexibility, and for other regulated and non-regulated areas.
These engines meet the current IMO emission standards as defined by Regulation 13 of Annex VI to the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, 1973, as modified by the Protocol of 1978, further amended by the Protocol of 1997. A statement of compliance issued by the United States government's EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) is included in the technical file that is shipped with the engine as proof of our engine's ability to meet IMO emissions requirements. If this technical file is insufficient to meet the customer's requirements, then a GL or CCS IMO emissions certification may be ordered.
