EPEC uses Cummins engines exclusively. Cummins are the biggest independent diesel engine manufacturer in the world, and provide particularly suitable engines for these applications.
EPEC supplies Diesel Engine Systems (DES’s) for both underground and surface applications – wherever there is a hazardous gas environment, EPEC can supply an engine solution.
Although the standards are different between underground Coal mines and ATEX, the underlying physics are the same – keep the temperatures down, and prevent sparks. And if something goes wrong, have systems in place to avoid a critical situation arising.
Our systems are complete, and are fully tested before shipping – you can witness the testing if you like, or we can send you a video of the engine developing the required power.
EPEC also provides extensive ‘Installation advice to our Customers – we are all interested in the engine installation being successful, and we are there to support our Installation partners.
