2003 and older model-year diesel fueled vehicles, excluding those with turbocharged engines equipped with catalytic converters and/or exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) systemsThe Condensator, Model DX, consists of two plastic separators which hold absorbent beads that trap heavy particles, pressure relief valve, adapter for the crankcase breather outlet, and the necessary hose and fittings. It replaces the road draft exhaust tube, allowing the crankcase blow-by gases to circulate through the plastic separators where oil and other heavy particles are trapped and gases are recirculated into the engine's air intake system. Regular maintenance requires disposal of the heavy particles and periodic cleaning of the separators.

beads that trap heavy particles, pressure relief valve, adapter for the crankcase breather
outlet, and the necessary hose and fittings. It replaces the road draft exhaust tube,
allowing the crankcase blow—by gases to circulate through the plastic separators where oil
and other heavy particles are trapped and gases are recirculated into the engine‘s air
intake system. Regular maintenance requires disposal of the heavy particles and periodic
cleaning of the separators.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Condensator,
Model DX will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those
submitted by the device manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Condensator, Model DX, as
exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the
vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.
