Soot particle filter

The soot particle filter is based on a ceramic honeycomb structure made of silicon carbide (SiC). The exhaust gases flow through the porose honeycomb walls. Up to 99 per cent of even the smallest particles (20-300 nanometers) are eliminated in the process.

The effectiveness of our filters has been tested against the most stringent standards. (VERT –certification).

Soot regeneration

Regeneration means combustion of the soot in the filter without leaving any residue. Soot is pure carbon created in the course of the incomplete combustion characteristic of diesel engines.

In the presence of oxygen and with no catalytic coating, the soot burns off at a temperature of around 650°C.

To ensure all the soot deposits in the filter are burned off, all standard version filter elements are catalytically coated. This catalytic coating causes soot particle combustion to commence from around 400°C in the presence of O2.
