Corning Diesel Particulate Filters Chosen by Navistar (posted 3/16/09)
Corning Inc. and Navistar, Inc. recently announced that Corning will provide Navistar with advanced diesel emissions-control products that will enable Navistar to meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations that go into effect January 1, 2010. This multi-year agreement is for the supply of Corning emissions-control products for medium- and heavy-duty Navistar MaxxForce® brand diesel engines. Both companies collaborated to integrate Corning DuraTrap® AT filters, DuraTrap® AC filters and Celcor® substrates into advanced after-treatment systems optimized for a range of Navistar’s engine platforms.
“We are pleased to continue as Navistar’s supplier of advanced substrates and diesel particulate filters,” said Curt Weinstein, vice president and general manager for Heavy-Duty Diesel Technologies. “Our emissions-control products will help Navistar achieve the rigorous EPA 2010 mandate. This agreement emphasizes our commitment to meeting Navistar’s emissions technology needs.”
According to Eric Tech, vice president and general manager of the Navistar Engine Group, “The ability of Corning to meet the stringent specifications provided by Navistar for particulate filter and substrate technology to support Navistar’s MaxxForce Advanced EGR technology was integral to our selection of these products with this proven supplier. This agreement is a key enabler of Navistar’s mission to provide customers with a simple and straightforward solution that places the responsibility of emissions compliance on the vehicle manufacturer, not the customer.”
