The CARB certification shows Rypos’ active diesel particulate filters go beyond normal EPA emissions standards.

Considerations for reconditioned diesel particulate filters

“Reconditioned”, baked or cleaned diesel particulate filters (DPF) units offer short term financial benefit. In terms of  functionality, the overall cost to the customer is much higher. In reality these processes can deactivate the original catalyst and stress the DPF substrate to an even greater extent during normal active regen cycling. Reconditioned units present an

Diesel particulate filter fleet maintenance options and risk assessment

Diesel particulate filter (DPF) problems will cause an engine to lose power, have a lower fuel economy, cause poor throttle responses and can make a truck’s engine harder to start. These issues can limit engine performance and prevent the truck from moving. When trucks are not in service neither is your business. DPF preventative maintenance

Benefits the customer can expect with Durafit DPFs

As demands for cleaner emissions increase, the designers of diesel aftertreatment systems continue to focus on ways to improve the performance of those systems to remove more particulate matter, and improve the overall efficiency of the filtration installed on the vehicle. Improvements targeted included enhancement of the coating on the substrate to improve chemical reactions

DPF failures and common causes

The truck’s DPF removes diesel soot from the exhaust emissions of a diesel engine, and like any other filter, it slowly gets clogged up with the soot that it traps and if not serviced when required most likely fails. What are the a few key common causes of DPF failure? High Idle Times. High idle

The Importance of Validation in the DPF Cleaning and Restoration Process

Recently we heard an individual refer to a DPF as a sealed trash can. At Ceramex, we can identify with that definition since it is impossible to see how full it is. As a result, the tendency is to keep pumping ash into them until they will not take any more. Unfortunately, when the trash

Volvo Trucks details new maintenance intervals

Volvo Trucks in North America extended its recommended maintenance intervals for diesel engine oil and diesel particulate filters on all model year 2011 and newer Volvo trucks equipped with Volvo’s D11, D13 or D16 engines. For engine oil and filters, the new recommended maintenance intervals add 10,000 miles to the previous life of an oil change
