Eminox, has a long heritage in designing, developing, and manufacturing pioneering technologies and solutions to ensure commercial vehicles meet the latest emissions regulations.


Our range of Euro 6 replacement Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) are easily sourced, direct from our UK manufacturing facility in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, with expert advice available from our team should you need it.


“A DPF in full working order can remove 99% of particulate matter (PM), or soot. Therefore, when a DPF is not working as effectively as it could, tangible detrimental effects will be had on emissions compliance, air quality and public health,” said Dr David Phillips, Engineering Director, Eminox. “Regular servicing and maintenance will go some way to alleviating the challenges faced when DPFs fail. However, dashboard lights can appear at other times, primarily when a DPF becomes blocked. This is most typically evident through compromised vehicle performance, black exhaust fumes and unusual engine smells, and all can have a negative impact on maintaining essential emissions compliance.”


Compliance is a priority


It is important for owners and operators of Euro 6 commercial vehicles to ensure that current legislation and emissions regulations are met, and that they act responsibly to achieve this.


Whilst limited downtime may be necessary to maintain a DPF, it is essential to ensure the vehicle remains compliant to the latest emissions regulations. This is particularly important when driving in the ever-increasing number of Ultra-Low Emission or Clean Air Zones (ULEZ or CAZ), in the UK, as significant fines can be applied for non-compliance.


For those who operate vehicles on the continent, even higher standards of DPF testing have been introduced in Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland and Germany and it is expected that future adherence is likely in more countries.


Periodic Testing Instrument – Particle Number (PTI-PN) essentially replaces smoke testing and gives a particle number (PN) measurement, rather than an opacity measurement. It is carried out whilst the vehicle is idle and stationary using a portable PN tester.


By setting a new testing standard for in service DPF monitoring, it is important to appreciate that whilst it is possible to get DPFs cleaned, low quality cleaning processes are not as effective as a replacement DPF and may therefore not meet the new required standards of PTI-PN testing.


Replacing a DPF


Knowing that vehicle DPFs are in optimum working order brings reassurance regarding vehicle compliance, continued performance, and minimal downtime for fleet operators.


By choosing high quality replacements, operators benefit from greater flexibility surrounding vehicle deployment, safe in the knowledge that vehicles, whether in the UK or on the continent, will meet the latest standards.


For workshop professionals, knowing that a replacement DPF is manufactured by one of the leading developers and manufacturers of exhaust aftertreatment systems only serves to add further reassurance.


“Our expertise regarding vehicle emissions legislation and compliance, and our range of real world tested, market leading type approved products, makes us the ideal partner for emissions reduction technologies, including replacement DPFs,” said David. “These have brought, and will continue to bring, reliability and cost efficiencies for operators striving to ensure their vehicles are environmentally sustainable and achieve emissions compliance, whilst prolonging the life of fleets.”


By choosing our approved, proven technologies compliance and cost can be managed effectively.
