Perko opened its new Diurnal Emission System Design Training Facility in time for the Miami International Boat Show, which runs Feb. 17-21.

The facility is part of Perko's 450,000-square-foot manufacturing plant, which is just 30 minutes from the Miami Beach Convention Center. The company will provide transportation to and from the show for customers who would like to visit the facility.

The display room is equipped with audio-visual aids to set up seminars with as many as 25 attendees. The space is available to all Perko fuel system customers and prospects for education and training or just to walk through, view options and handle products.

The training center contains examples of nearly a dozen tank/canister/fuel system configurations, samples of fuel fills, P-traps, vents, ullage tanks, canisters, vapor/fuel separators and fuel system valves.

To arrange a visit during the show or at any time, e-mail Perko at or contact Oscar Socarras at (305) 621-7525, Ext. 154.
