Sioux Dakota ®Series Machines are Performance Certified
In 1998 the Cleaning Equipment Trade Association (CETA) implemented a new performance standard for the industry. This standard, developed by the Technical Standards Committee of CETA, in conjunction with engineering representatives from manufacturers and suppliers in the industry, specifies the performance criteria required for CETA certification. All Dakota Series machines meet these requirements, and are CETA Performance Certified. This certification assures the buyers of Dakota® Series machines that the performance promised in the literature will be the performance delivered.
