The C13 is a diesel engine manufactured by Caterpillar Inc. Using a combination of source reductions, barriers, and various technological platforms engine noise has become considerably reduced.
C13 ACERT relies on proven C-12 technology. The single piece cylinder head design has proven itself durable as well as reliable A steel spacer core sandwiched between two layers of spring steel increases the head gaskets resilience. Gasket resilience increases engine life by decreasing leakage.
C13 is equipped with a new highly efficient oil filter (based on Cat’s hydraulic technology). The new filter reduces engine wear and enhances contamination control.
