Cat® Industrial Diesel Engines - Proven Reliability

Real-World Validation for the Uptime You Demand

At the heart of every great product is a great engine — one that powers through day after day, month after month, year after year. That kind of reliability doesn't happen by chance. It's the result of proven designs, quality manufacturing and extensive validation.

We put Cat® industrial engines through a wide range of tests in both everyday and extreme conditions. In addition to laboratory and cold chamber testing, that includes real-world validation in the Arctic Circle, the Arizona desert and the Colorado mountains — all to make sure their performance and uptime meet your high expectations.


Anton Zimmermann, product development manager, explains the importance of Caterpillar’s validation processes and how engines are being tested in extreme environments.
