Your business is bleeding crucial resources. The reason for it is you're overwhelmed by the legal demands to keep your fleet compliant and that makes you lose time and money.
Diesel Pollution Solutions is here to change that. We perform precise and prompt smoke inspections, giving you back the time to operate your business and helping you reduce costs.
Vehicle emissions are a serious source of air pollution, especially in urban areas:
California is serious about keeping its air clean and is constantly acting towards improving freight performance and transitioning to zero-emission equipment. Two programs, conducted by California Air Resources Board (CARB), detail the owners' responsibilities. Namely, the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP) and the Heavy-Duty Vehicle Inspection Program (HDVIP). You can read more about them on our warning page.
As there are specific demands in the PSIP that have to be met, dealing with it on your own can be a complicated process, time and effort consuming. This is how we can help your company:
What vehicles are excepted from the program? Diesel-powered vehicles are exempt for being tested in the first four years of their existence (for example, 2015 engines are exempt until January 1, 2019).
*To find out details about the vehicles excepted from the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program read CARB's Advisory.
Maintain records. The smoke test results, information about repairs, and post-repair tests are recorded and have to be kept for at least two consecutive years.
*For details about the information that has to be recorded and maintained, consult our digital record keeping page.
Conformity to PSIP's requirements certifies your fleet is risk-free. Also, correct maintainance extends your vehicles' lives. You avoid costly repairs and penalties and you contribute to cleaner air.
Diesel Pollution Solutions' PSIP testing advantages are:
We test the smoke opacity of your vehicle by performing a snap idle test or a snap-acceleration test.
We don't cover just one aspect of the activities necessary to keep your fleet sustainable. Diesel Pollution Solutions' goal is to help you through the whole mission to comply. We will help you with:
The standards that have to be met in both test are the same. If you pass the periodical smoke test and Diesel Pollution Solutions certifies that you are in compliance, you can also pass the HDVIP.
CARB requires that the smoke opacity test complies with the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) J1667 specifications and procedures. For your annual smoke inspection, Diesel Pollution Solutions is committed to offering the best services.
CARB has issued heavy fines for non-compliance with the smoke inspection program. If your fleet and records are being audited, Diesel Pollution Solutions is dedicated to helping you comply as soon as possible.
The smoke inspection test can be problematic for trucks that are not in a good shape. If your vehicle does not pass the smoke inspection, Diesel Pollution Solutions will help you face the situation.
Environmental protection concerns us all. Diesel Pollution Solutions will help your business reduce costs by compiling a fitting maintenance and complying strategy.
CARB requires that heavy-duty vehicles be smoke checked annually. Diesel Pollution Solutions' mission is to help you comply efficiently.
