Parker Racor, a division of Parker Hannifin, has again been recognised in the category of green and growth for its SuperImpactor at the 2012 EEF future manufacturing awards. The SuperImpactor represents an engineering breakthrough in the battle to continually reduce engine emissions and also helps minimise environmental impact. The team have developed an emissions system that sets the standard for high performance fit-for-life closed crankcase ventilation systems.
The need for a more efficient approach for filtration of crankcase blow by gas was the driving force behind research and development efforts. The development team set out to design a high-performance, innovative system, which would be a viable alternative to traditional oil-driven centrifuges. The SuperImpactor CCV was the result of these engineering efforts. SuperImpactor regulates the crankcase pressure, separates the liquid/aerosol oil and returns it to the sump, thus delivering open and closed crankcase systems up to 99 per cent efficiency. This provides a positive impact on the environment by eliminating oil mist from crankcase emissions.
SuperImpactor technology is available for medium, heavy, and industrial-sized engine projects, controlling blow-by gas up to 1400 litres per minute whilst maintaining crankcase pressure limits and efficiencies throughout the engine life. The cleaned gas can be closed to the intake system and high oil separation efficiency maintains good turbo and intercooler performance. Alternatively the cleaned gas can be returned to atmosphere.
Davinder Bhogal, Product Manager at Parker Racor, says: “The SuperImpactor has been widely recognised already and the EEF award continues to recognise the great work the development team here at Racor is doing. The protection of the environment is something that we all should have an interest in, and we are providing cutting-edge solutions that help reduce engine emissions’.
