Today’s diesel fleet managers are challenged by new equipment technology and stringent air quality regulations. Keeping diesel particulate filters clean and in good working order is one of those challenges. The AeroCLEAN System developed by emissions control manufacturer, CleanAIR Systems, offers fleet managers a fast, easy and safe solution for filter maintenance.
Over time, self-cleaning diesel particulate filters can build-up a layer of non-combustible ash that requires cleaning of a fleet’s exhaust filters. This routine maintenance allows the filters to function properly, as well as extends the life of the filter. Without the correct equipment and understanding of filter technology, the cleaning process can become a problem. If water or solvents are used to dislodge ash, ceramic filters can be negatively affected. High heat methods can cause thermal shock and may crack or melt filters. CleanAIR’s AeroCLEAN extends the life of a filter by using a non-thermal, dry cleaning technique to safely loosen and blow out collected ash in under 15 minutes.
Originally designed for a select market segment using off-road equipment retrofitted with CleanAIR PERMIT Filters, the AeroCLEAN is capable of safely cleaning filters in-field. The cleaning system requires no electricity and is safe enough to use on a daily basis if frequent cleaning is necessary to keep a fleet’s diesel particulate filters in top shape.
With new on- and off-road regulations looming on the horizon and particulate filters becoming an integral part of emissions control for diesel vehicles such as construction and mining equipment, the AeroCLEAN is reaching a wider market looking for a safe, effective way to service fleet vehicles.
According to the maker, the AeroCLEAN handles all sizes of CleanAIR PERMIT Filters. The enclosed cleaning system uses no heat or electricity, requiring only a compressed air source for its dry cleaning method. Utilizing a rugged, sturdy construction, the AeroCLEAN can be taken directly into the field for as-needed cleaning of vehicle filters. The unit’s large containment area allows for repeated maintenance of multiple filters before collected material is removed. With a cleaning cycle of less than 15 minutes, the AeroCLEAN is a fast, easy solution for cleaning diesel particulate filters.
