The Superior TPS Diesel
Emissions Solution


TPS’ revolutionary Transient Plasma Emissions Remediation System is a superior solution to legacy technologies designed to lower emissions from diesel engines. Leveraging nanosecond pulsed power technology, TPS reactors remediate diesel particulates while overcoming the drawbacks of the traditional diesel particulate filters (DPF's) and lowering the loads on selective catalyst reduction (SCR) systems.

The Clean Air Imperative

Stricter emissions regulations around the globe demand higher fuel efficiency and decreased particulate emissions. While electrified solutions are on the long-term horizon, internal combustion diesel engines will continue to dominate the market for medium-heavy duty vehicles, off-road equipment, and stationary power generation equipment.

The Big Challenge

Stricter emissions regulations around the globe demand higher fuel efficiency, and internal combustion diesel engines still dominate medium-heavy duty vehicles, off road equipment, as well as stationary power generation equipment.

TPS’ revolutionary Transient Plasma Emissions Remediation System helps lower emissions from diesel engines. Remediating diesel particulates while overcoming the drawbacks of the traditional diesel particulate filters (DPF) and lowering the load on SCRs by reducing NOx emissions.

TPS Does NOT REQUIRE Regeneration

Current particulate emissions solution (DPF) requires regeneration to burn off soot particles. Soot accumulation in DPF leads to increased backpressure increasing fuel consumption and GHG emissions. Cleaning and maintenance of DPF requires off-site service.

Diesel Engine Test Results

TPS Emissions Remediation system was tested on a 18kW, 1800 RPM, 2.2 L diesel engine that meets Tier 4 emissions regulations, without any emissions control device (no DOC or DPF) at an independent test facility. The tests were conducted in accordance with modified (i.e. a 6-mode as opposed to a 4 mode) EPA test methodology 40 CFR 1065.601(c)(1) and 40 CFR 1039.645.

Commercial Kitchen
Applications

 

The Big Challenge

Research carried out by Universities and Environmental Protection Agencies has found that commercial chargrills produce greater amounts of air pollution than diesel trucks. Studies claim that the amount of particulate matter (PM) that these cooking systems send into the ecosystem is far more than trucks and factory smokestacks.

Kitchen Ventilation Particulate
Emissions Reduction

>90%

Why Inhaling Burgers is Unhealthy

When grease drips onto a flame, it forms soot, which is composed of very fine particles that can work their way deep into the lungs. A high-fat hamburger cooked on a flame charbroiler emits significantly high amounts of PM. Research has found that every 1,000 pounds of hamburger cooked on conveyor broilers creates 25 pounds of emissions.

A Growing Appetite for Cleaner Air

Pressure continues to mount for heightened regulatory policy to curb harmful emissions. An increase in mixed-use building construction is also driving peer pressure to lower particulate, smoke and odor emissions from neighboring commercial kitchens.

While some solutions to post-treat the exhaust from industrial grills have emerged, they are costly and difficult to implement and maintain. Transient Plasma Systems emissions solutions hold the promise of exceptional PM mitigation performance, deep smoke and odor removal, and low maintenance. And that’s a breath of fresh air for commercial grill operators.
