During aftertreatment service, you’ll want to inspect the DOC and look for evidence of aging,
While the DPF and DOC are the components we typically associate with aftertreatment service issues, improperly maintained aftertreatment systems can lead to a host of other operational issues. “Issues with the emissions system can have a ‘knock-on’ effect on various components in the engine environment,” said Dr. Barry Southward, vice president of catalyst technology for
