Frequently Asked Questions
1. Will the ERD harm me or my employees from something the device is emitting?
No. The ERD is a fully passive, non-intrusive device. The ERD contains no magnets, batteries or internal electrical source. DLS Electronic Systems tests with modern equipment have shown the ERD does not produce any detectable harmful emissions. Devices passed two standardized tests for electromagnetic radiation:
- FCC: Unintentional Radiators (Class B Digital Devices)
- IEC: Electromagnetic Fields of Household Appliances and Similar Apparatus with regard to Human Exposure.
2. Will the ERD harm my trucks, heavy machinery, cars or other equipment?
The ERD works on all internal combustion engines and with all combustible fuels. The ERD has been installed on passenger cars, buses, trucks, motorcycles, forklifts, Zambonis, gas grills, gas furnaces, lawn equipment, etc.- in five (5) different countries. During that time period ESC has not had one report indicating the ERD caused any harm to an engine or piece of equipment.
Note: ESC carries a Five (5) Million Dollar Liability Policy that covers any engine or equipment damage that was caused by the ERD as long as the device is installed per ESC’s installation instructions.
3. How long will the ERD continue to work?
The first-generation Emissions Reduction Device (ERD) was manufactured on October 17, 2017 and has a proven useful life of over two (2) years. ESC warranties its products for one (1) year.
4. Why do fuel savings and emissions reductions vary?
Fuel improvement will vary from vehicle to vehicle. Vehicles must be in good mechanical condition to get the maximum benefit from the ERD.
5. Can I get a refund if I am not fully satisfied?
ESC has a 30-day no questions asked full refund. If you are not happy with our product for any reason during the first 30 days, you can send it back for a full refund. Once the Emissions Reduction Device (ERD) device is installed, the effect starts working almost immediately. Thirty days is enough time to see our technology’s amazing effects.
6. Are the tests done by accredited and independent entities?
Yes, all testing was conducted by the following independent institutions:
- Texas A&M Transportation Institute at College Station, Texas (2
- DLS Electronic Systems in Wheeling, Illinois (Harmful Emissions)
- Pacific Power Group. Kent, Washington (indoor dyno on a 2020 Freightliner double sleeper with a Detroit Diesel engine)
- Cummins NW Inc. Sumner, Washington (indoor dyno on a 2016 Freightliner single sleeper with a Cummins engine)
- Environmental Quality Management Company (EQM) in Cincinnati, Ohio (forklifts)
Ongoing Testing / Future Testing:
- Merlino Construction Company in Seattle, WA – Fuel, Oil, and emissions testing under SAE J1264 & elements of SAE J1526 on two 2017 Kenworth T880 diesel tractor/trailer conducted by John Duffy, PhD (retired engineer from Kenworth Advanced Engineering Division), Vehicle Monitor Corporation in Redmond, WA, Glenn Fulton Greenco Industries.
- Carrix at Seattle Port Terminal 18 & 30 – Conducted on “yarddog” tractors that move ocean containers at seaports
- Carlile Transportation in Seattle, WA (division of Saltchuk Companies)
7. How do I know the unit is still working?
You will continue to see fuel savings assuming a well-maintained vehicle/engine. We recommend replacing the device every (2) two years.
8. Do you offer a warranty?
ESC offers a limited 1-year warranty. See the Warranty page for how to activate your warranty.
