Altronic is committed as good corporate citizens, as stewards of the global environment that we all share, to the health and safety of
our employees, and to the highest standards of corporate governance.
Altronic’s commitment to these basic values has served us well over the decades that we have been a manufacturer and supplier of high-quality products for our global distribution and customer base.
In addition to designing products that serve to control and reduce the stack emissions from industrial spark-ignited gas and diesel engines, we make ongoing investments in our production facility and manufacturing processes to reduce environmental waste, reduce resource consumption, and improve the working environment for our employees.”
As the world moves towards the development of renewable energy, and works to reduce its dependence on hydrocarbon-based fuel, we are confident that clean-burning natural gas engines will remain an important part in basic reliable and cheap power generation, will serve as the required backbone of renewable power generation backup, and will serve an important role in the ever-growing world demand for power and energy.
One of the key foundational building blocks to a cleaner global environment is the global spread of prosperity. Increasing prosperity leads to an ever-increasing demand for energy, and
also the ability to ensure that this increasing need can be filled
by cleaner energy sources.
Altronic is fully committed to the protection of the environment through prevention of pollution, compliance of obligations and continuously improving our operations to minimize the effect on the natural world.
Since 2010, the Altronic facility is certified to ISO 14001:2015, the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system. It serves to improve environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste, better serving our community, customers, and employees.
Included in the vast portfolio of industrial engine products designed and manufactured by Altronic are several product lines designed to contribute to and enable the control of emissions of stationary industrial internal combustion engines in use throughout the world.
Electronic Ignition Systems
Working in concert with the design of the engine combustion chamber, the ignition system creates high voltage on the anode side of the spark plug gap. When the voltage differential becomes sufficient to create a conductive path of ions within the gap, a current rush flows from anode to cathode, resulting in a spark.
Air/Fuel Ratio Control
Whether the engine and fuel control are designed as stoichiometric (match of air and fuel required for complete combustion), or lean burn (excess oxygen achieved through high turbo boost and increased compression ratio), the proper control of air and and fuel is critical.
In modern stationary internal combustion engines, reliance on advanced electronic engine controls is a given. In this sense, they are the “brains” of the engine. These systems offer start/stop, speed, air/fuel ratio, and ignition control, along with monitoring and safety shutdown protection, advanced diagnostics, data logging, data telematics, and communications.
The Altronic GTI Bi-Fuel product line allows for the fumigation of natural gas into stationary diesel engines, thereby substituting cleaner-burning natural gas for a percentage of the diesel fuel. This technology offers advantages in terms of cost savings and extended run time of the diesel fuel tanks. In 2014, the GTI Bi-Fuel system became the first of its kind to achieve certification with the California Air Resources Board.
