PurePower’s K603cc Certification Level of 28 Grams per Kilowatt Hour Best by 20% CO EPA Certification Best in Industry
PurePowerLPG by Aztec celebrates 10 years (yes, that’s TEN CONSECUTIVE YEARS) as cleanest 603cc engine in the industry. Kawasaki Motors Corporation introduced the gasoline powered 603cc twin valve engine into the commercial floor equipment market in 2010 to be converted to Liquid Propane Gas (LPG). Because gasoline cannot be used as an indoor fuel source, each equipment manufacturer must: (a) create their own LPG carburation system for the engine, (b) have that system independently tested by a third party, (c) register the system and resulting emission measurements with the EPA and (d) post a large financial performance bond with EPA promising not to change their configuration.
PurePowerLPG by Aztec welcomed the introduction of this new, very powerful Kawasaki engine and immediately went to work on engineering the cleanest, most robust LPG configuration possible. PurePowerLPG’s resulting configuration, with 28 grams Carbon Monoxide (CO) per kilowatt hour and 14.1 horsepower, remains the best in the industry. This EPA certification demonstrates why PurePowerLPG is one of the top LPG commercial floor care equipment manufacturers in the world.

Based on the 2019 EPA certification rollovers posted so far, it is clear that Aztec’s 28g of CO/hour will remain the cleanest – 20% cleaner emissions than their next closest competitor, with a 50% higher horsepower. Others competitors with approximately the same horsepower certifications have 2x, 3x or even 9 times higher CO emission levels. Even more incredibly, when the standard Aztec system is enhanced with the NEES Electronic Fuel Controller, the CO emissions can be dropped by another 47% with only a 3.5% drop in horsepower, from 14.1hp to 13.6hp.
Whit Beverly, President of PurePowerLPG and Aztec Products, said, “Businesses use many techniques to try to get to the top of their industry. Having the lowest price or flashy sales gimmicks are common approaches. With CO being a byproduct of all internal combustion engines, Aztec’s approach has always been to have the safest, toughest, most productive floor maintenance equipment available. Our 10th straight year as cleanest engine certification in the industry is testament to that commitment.”
