Multiquip, a diverse manufacturer and supplier of world class quality products and solutions, is pleased to announce MQ PowerBalance, a patent pending system to ensure reliable operation of Tier 4 diesel generators through all weather conditions and loads.

“Consistent, reliable and clean power generation is what our customers demand from our MQ Power Tier 4 generators,” said Torsten Erbel, the vice president for product management, engineering and support, for Multiquip. “The addition of PowerBalance technology will assist Tier 4 generators deliver the performance and reliability that customers expect from Multiquip.”

Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandates have placed very restrictive engine emission requirements on all diesel engine manufacturers doing business in the United States. Latest generation diesel engines, supporting interim Tier 4 and Tier 4 Final emission directives, are designed to continually clean the engine exhaust to ensure EPA emissions compliance.

The Tier 4 engine and emission system can experience problems when running at low temperature and/or low loads. During these conditions, excess soot build up can result in poor performance and untimely shutdowns.

MQ Power’s PowerBalance is an integrally-mounted load bank system designed to apply a supplemental resistive load to the generator when operated under low temperature and/or low load conditions. It constantly monitors, senses, and manages the exhaust temperature and/or load. No additional monitoring is required to keep the generator continually running and providing the reliable power needed.
