Crankcase Ventilation Systems (CVS)
Crankcase ventilation systems provide an economical solution for engine oil mist elimination. As organizations become more aware of their impact on the environment — and subject to increasingly strict emissions regulations — crankcase ventilation systems have come to play an important role in many heavy equipment fleets.
The Gregory Poole service team designs and manufactures advanced crankcase ventilation systems for Cat® and allied heavy equipment. With advanced technical expertise and the full resources of the Caterpillar® company at our disposal, we can assess your needs and create a customized emissions control solution that won’t sacrifice the performance or reliability of your important assets.
What is Crankcase Ventilation?
In a normal high-performance engine, crankcase blow-by is produced when high-pressure combustion gasses become contaminated as they pass through the piston rings and crankcase. This creates dirtier emissions and causes a degradation of engine and coolant performance by coating these and other sensitive components with oil mist.
A crankcase ventilation system solves these problems by filtering out contaminants and circulating clean oil back to the engine. This, in turn, prevents damage to your engine and related systems, increases service intervals and improves overall performance and reliability.
