Delphi’s Full Complement of Emissions Canisters on Display at International Boatbuilders’ Show


Auburn Hills, Mich. — For the second consecutive year, Delphi will show boating-industry representatives from around the world its evaporative emissions solutions for impending regulations on boats with built-in fuel tanks. In addition, Delphi will display key products for the complete range of marine engine management systems at the 2008 International Boatbuilder’s Exhibition (IBEX) Oct. 6-8 in Miami.

“On the road, Delphi has been recognized as an industry leader in automotive evaporative emissions for more than 30 years,” said Sue LaBine, Delphi Powertrain chief engineer for Canisters and Evaporative Controls. “Now, we are taking that experience to the water and developing environmentally-friendly, cost-effective solutions for the marine industry. At IBEX, we’ll connect Delphi with the dynamic industry and its talented people—especially those implementing this latest technology.”

As an integral part of an effective evaporative control system, Delphi marine evaporative emissions canisters help limit the amount of hydrocarbons released into the environment. Delphi’s canisters are located in-line between the fuel tank and the outside vent. As gasoline vapors enter the canister, hydrocarbon molecules in the vapors are attracted to, and stored upon, the surfaces of the carbon bed inside the canister. The canister is then passively purged as fresh air is drawn toward it and the vapors are returned to the fuel tank, thus limiting the hydrocarbon exposure to the atmosphere.

Delphi’s canisters have been validated in the marine environment and comply with the American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC) and the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) current recommendations and requirements.

In addition to supplying canisters, Delphi has the ability to integrate hoses, drains and other devices to create a sub-system working harmoniously with the latest marine fuel systems.

Currently, Delphi produces more than six million evaporative emissions canisters annually. As the only canister supplier in the marine market with more than 30 years of involvement, Delphi is leveraging its vast experience and knowledge to offer customers world-class quality, warranty and performance. Further, Delphi has full engineering capabilities in North America and Europe to help manufactures meet evolving evaporative emissions regulations and support the global reduction of ground level ozone.

In addition to its evaporative emissions canisters modules and systems, Delphi offers key, customizable powertrain products for the complete marine engine management system. That line-up of components and systems is applicable for gasoline engine management, small engine management and diesel engine management.
