                                       SUMMARY


             Certified Technologies Corporation (CERTECH) of 1624 Harmon

Place, Suite 209, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55403—1999 has applied for an

exemption from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the California Vehicle

Code for their PureCycle oil filter.     The filtering device is designed for

installation on heavy—duty diesel—powered vehicles.

             Based on an engineering evaluation of the PureCycle oil filter,

the staff believes that the filtering device will not have any adverse effect

on the exhaust or evaporative emissions of the vehicles for which the

exemption is requested.

             Staff recommends that CERTECH be granted an exemption for their

PureCycle oil filter for installation on 1997 and older model—year heavy—duty

diesel—powered vehicles and that Executive Order No. D—383 be issued.

                EVALUATION OF CERTIFIED TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION‘S
       PURECYCLE OIL FILTER FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE PROHIBITIONS OF VEHICLE
         CODE SECTION 27156 IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 2222, TITLE 13 OF
                        THE CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS



I.              INTRODUCTION

                Certified Technologies Corporation      (CERTECH)   of 1624 Harmon

Place,   Suite 209,   Minneapolis,   Minnesota 55403—1999 has applied for an

exemption from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the California Vehicle

Code for their PureCycle oil filter for use on heavy—duty diesel—powered

vehicles.     CERTECH has submitted all the required information including

installation instructions and specifications of the filtering device for our

evaluation.



II.             CONCLUSION

                Based on an engineering evaluation of the filtering device, the

staff has determined that the PureCycle oil filter will not adversely affect

the exhaust or evaporative emissions from heavy—duty diesel—powered vehicles

and therefore,   meets the criteria set forth in Section 27156 of the California

Vehicle Code and Title 13 of the California Code of Regulations.



II1.            RECOMMENDATION

                Staff recommends that CERTECH be granted an exemption,

permitting advertisement, sale, and installation of their PureCycle oil filter

on 1997 older model—year heavy—duty diesel—powered vehicles and that Executive

Order No.   D—383 be issued.




IVv.            DEVICE   DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION

                The PureCycle filtering device is cylindrical in shape and

consists of two clarification elements;      the filtering vessel and the


distilling chamber.     The device measures 15.5 inches in height and 7 inches

in outer diameter.    Under engine oil pressure, the oill is filtered through

the replaceable filter cartridge from the bottom of the vessel at a rate of

4—5 gallons per hour.     The filtering material is made of King—strand cotton

fiber.   The filtered oil then enters the distilling chamber where liquid

impurities are removed through vaporization.     The distilling chamber is

heated to temperatures in the range of 212 to 220 degrees Fahrenheit through

a 12—volt electrical connection to the battery.     The purified oil is then

returned by gravity to the oil pan,    and the water and other distilling vapors

vent through the vapor control valve and into the air cleaner.

              The device is   secured on the frame or on the firewall using the

mounting bracket.     The "pre—screen" hose connects the bottom of the filtering

vessel to the oil source (oil gallery).    A 3/4 inch hose connects the oil

return outlet to the crankcase inspection plug or the fitting on the oil pan.

The oil return outlet must be 3 inches above the point where the hose connects

to the inspection plug.     A 1/4 inch vent hose is installed from the vent

chamber to an opening in the air cleaner allowing recirculation of the vapors.

The device is a continuous filtering system which requires a minimum of 3—4

quarts of additional engine oil for operation.     CERTECH recommends that the

filter cartridge be changed at normally scheduled maintenance intervals or

every 12,000 miles or 300 hours.




v.            DEVICE EVALUATION AND DISCUSSION

              CERTECH claims that PureCycle oil filter removes particulate

matter and liquid impurities from the engine oil allowing cleaner running

engine for an extended period of time.    The filtering device has no direct

contact with the fuel system or the combustion process;    therefore,   the staff

concludes that the installation of the filtering device will not have any

adverse effect on exhaust emissions.     Potential hydrocarbon emissions vented

from the distilling chamber are recirculated to the air cleaner preventing

increased evaporative emissions.


             No emissions tests were conducted by the Air Resources Board.

CERTECH has submitted all the required information and has fulfilled the

requirements for an exemption.
