Maritime exhaust specialist Discom has developed an exhaust system to ensure that new and existing Caterpillar 3512 engines comply with Stage V emission standards. The system was developed in cooperation with Yerseke Engine Services (YES) and installed in the ‘Vera Pax’ pusher by VEKA in Werkendam.
Not many people are aware of it, but exhaust systems and silencers are also subject to wear and tear. Systems that previously met all the regulations, eventually fail to comply with all the standards as time passes. This is harmful to the environment and to the hearing, health and comfort of staff, and nowadays also increasingly gives rise to complaints from the surrounding area.
