In honor of Earth Day, I'd like to talk about renting pumps with Tier 4 engines. Not only do Tier 4 engines help improve air quality, but renting them lets you save money while doing something good for the environment!
Environmentally Friendly Tier 4 Engines
The goal of the Tier 4 emission standards is to significantly reduce the amount of NOx (nitrogen oxide), HC (hydro carbons) and PM (particulate matter) produced and released into the atmosphere.
One of the best things about Tier 4 Engines is that they help to improve air quality where you live. These engines produce fewer harmful emissions improving the quality of life for people living in the United States. Emissions from diesel exhaust can damage plants, animals, crops and water resources. These emissions can also lead to serious health conditions like asthma and allergies, and can worsen heart and lung disease. As Molly mentioned in her "How Tier 4 Emissions Regulations will Impact You" blog post, The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) recently published a study done by W. James Gauderman, Ph.D., of USC's Keck School of Medicine, highlighting the improvements to health of children in California over the last 20 years due to better air quality (you can read the results of the study at NEJM).
WHY RENT TIER 4
Now that we've talked about the Green aspects of Tier 4, let's look at the engines from a financial perspective. Short term or long-term rental options package the associated costs of regular equipment ownership such as maintenance, parts and service and storage into a predictable monthly cost. This gives you greater budget control, minimizes disruption in operations and reduces downtime. Renting also allows you to select the right equipment for your specific application and adjust equipment to meet changing system needs. If your situation is an immediate or pending emergency, renting equipment drastically cuts lead times while maintaining access to field services and expert advice. For long-term rentals, you can also get on-site management services.
- Renting can provide you with EPA-compliant IT4 and FT4 pumps to fit your job, your budget and your application.
- With rental equipment, the equipment provider will ensure all equipment meets emission requirements.
- Expert technical advice from Xylem's engineers ensures the Tier 4 compliant pump you install is the best solution for the job.
The new FT4 engines offered on Godwin pumps continue Xylem's commitment to peak performance and a green industry. If you have any questions about the best Tier 4 solution for your business, contact your local Xylem representative.
