Eminox launch replacement DPF range
Commercial vehicle emissions specialist Eminox has launched its first range of high-quality direct fit replacement Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) for light commercial vehicles.
The new range meets strict European standards; reassurance that’s even more important following recent emissions scandals and investigations into non-conforming products. All Eminox DPFs for light commercial vehicles are manufactured to TS 16949 and fully comply with UNECE Regulation 103; the European standard concerning the approval of replacement pollution control devices.
The launch range from Eminox covers more than 70% of light commercial vehicles that were factory fitted with a DPF which are regulated by Euro 4 emissions standards. Vehicles covered by the range include the popular Mercedes Sprinter as well as vans manufactured by Citroën, Fiat, Nissan, Peugeot, Vauxhall and Volkswagen.
Eminox has been manufacturing DPF systems for OEM and retrofit applications since 1995, the new range will offer a cost-effective but high-quality alternative to OEM replacement DPFs. The DPFs are manufactured using silicon carbide substrates which can withstand high-temperature regeneration, offering longer life than the industry standard cordierite filters. The filters are housed in stainless steel for durability and a high-quality mat ensures the substrate is fixed in position correctly. DPFs are individually packed in boxes for storage and to prevent any damage during transportation.
The range has been designed with the workshop customer in mind, with each part being supplied with all fitting components required to fit the DPF rather than having to reuse worn components or having to order them separately. Through the branch network, customers will have access to an Eminox emissions specialist. All DPFs come with unlimited mileage, 2-year warranty from the fitment date.
“Making Eminox emissions products available to the European aftermarket is a logical progression for us because it leverages our expertise in supplying both commercial vehicle manufacturers and retrofit markets”, said Neil Koston at Eminox. “All of this comes with the technical expertise, quality and durability you would expect from the Eminox brand.”
“This is a premium quality range that offers a substantial saving against a replacement DPF from the original vehicle manufacturer”, said Neil Koston. “That means it represents excellent value for workshop operators and a great business opportunity for parts distributors looking to push ahead in this sector. We are committed to developing our range and throughout 2016, we will be launching DPFs for Euro 5 vehicles too.”
Eminox is reminding everyone that not all DPFs are the same, with its strapline for the new range ‘think inside the box…’ “The aftermarket is a business area that was traditionally built on cost effectiveness, but that isn’t just about the lowest price” added Neil Koston
Through its branches in the UK, France, Germany and Sweden, Eminox can supply the aftermarket with DPFs on a same day or next day basis across Europe.Back to News and Features
