US and every nation on earth are dependent on the transportation industry. And trucks are an essential part of the economi circle that connects producers to consumers. A commercial truck will usually be able to carry two, three or more passengers, but behind the seating will be something designed to carry materials or tow something large, and this feature will make up the majority of the commercial truck. A commercial truck can be divided into different types and classes. Many people use the more generic terms, light duty, medium duty, and heavy duty.
A commercial truck need to carry heavy loads of goods and some trucks are used over in mountainous regions or on flat roads for extended periods of time. To make sure that the trucks can achieve that, they require engines and fuels which can produce high amounts of torque, and it can be found in the diesel engine and with diesel fuel for a whole number of reasons. More than 95 percent of all large heavy-duty trucks are diesel-powered as are a majority of medium-duty trucks. Diesel power is the driving force today of goods movement by truck in US economy.
But, from the exhaust diesel engines contribute to the problem by releasing particulates directly into the air and by emitting nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides, which transform into “secondary” particulates in the atmosphere. It irritates the respiratory system, causing coughing, choking, and reduced lung capacity. So, as a truck owner and the driver how we can reduce the emission from diesel truck ?
Several options are available to truck owners who are considering improving the emissions performance of their diesel engines.
1. Converting engines to alternative fuels like compressed natural gas
2. retrofitting older engines with modern emission control technologies.
3. Smoother driving style
4. Air filter and diesel exhaust filter cleaning.
5. Change the oil reguraly
6. Check the tyre pressure
Reducing your diesel truck’s emissions is good for the environment and offer better performance, increased fuel economy and be cheaper to run.
