Perko announces formal EPA certification of canisters
March 24, 2011 11:34 am
Perko's emission system partner Delphi has received formal certification from the EPA for their carbon canisters. The canisters have been certified based on their tested performance.
This means that the EPA allows Delphi canisters to be used on tanks larger than those allowed with canisters that are EPA certified by design. The savings to boatbuilders, both in cost as well as space, is significant.
The Delphi 1.0 liter canister can now be used on tanks as large as 90 gallons on trailerable boats and 180 gallons on non-trailerable boats, versus 25 gallons and 50 gallons respectively under the EPA document, nearly a 400% improvement.
