POLARIS Laboratories® is prepared to help its customers meet EPA NESHAP regulations that began on October 19. The Quad Z regulation requires an oil change on spark ignition reciprocating internal combustion engines (SI RICE) unless fluid analysis can prove the lubrication meets EPA thresholds. 

HORIZON®, the company’s award-winning application, is capable of analyzing sample data and sending an alert to customers when the fluid exceeds the Quad Z thresholds. This alert is necessary since the EPA only allows two days of operation after fluid analysis identifies an exceedance. Violations of the rule could result in $25,000 fines.

In addition to Quad Z analysis, customers will receive POLARIS Laboratories®’s exclusive maintenance and reliability recommendations based on the sample’s metals, contaminants and fluid properties. These recommendations help customers prevent equipment failure, increase uptime and save money.    

More information about how POLARIS Laboratories® can help companies can be found at www.polarislabs.com/how-you-take-action/neshap-zzzz or by e-mailing custserv@polarislabs.com.
