Diesel Particulate Filter – Global DPF

The Global DPF is an active, metal-mesh substrate, level 3+, CARB verified, diesel particulate filter that reduces PM emissions by at least 85%.  The Global DPF is tolerant of variations in diesel fuel quality and will not have reactions to the poor fuel quality and contaminants that may be found in emerging markets.  The excess particulate matter is trapped in the metal-mesh substrate portion of the filter during engine operation. To clear out the trapped PM the filter must be “regenerated”. Regenerating the Global diesel particulate filter is as simple as bringing the vehicle to an idling state and pushing a button. Fuel is injected into the burner section of the filter system in order to build heat. The heat causes the particulate matter to safely ignite and burn off.  The internal metal-mesh substrate allows for fast heating and cooling so the regeneration process is normally completed in 10 minutes or less, allowing your vehicle to be up and running again quickly.

Diesel Particulate Filter

A diesel particulate filter is a device that acts similarly to the catalytic convertor of your car. It traps particulate matter contained in diesel exhaust and prevents it from distribution into the air. The particulate matter is later burned off during the regeneration process which can take anywhere from 10 minutes to 8 hours depending on the brand of dpf. There are two types of filters, active and passive. The Global diesel particulate filter is an active filter and normally regenerates in less than 10 minutes.

Diesel Particulate Filter– Active and Passive

A passive diesel particulate filter can be used for heavy-duty diesel vehicles that have a duty cycle similar to long haul trucks. The long drive time cycle and engine load allow exhaust temperatures within the diesel particulate filter to reach the required temperature to allow particulate matter to burn naturally without the injection of diesel fuel an equivalent accelerant.

An active diesel particulate filter is generally needed for heavy-duty diesel vehicles that have a duty cycle requiring multiple stops or idling, such as garbage trucks, local delivery vehicles, street sweepers and cranes. Long idling periods and multiple stops do not allow for the exhaust temperatures within the diesel particulate filter to reach the required temperature to ignite the trapped particulate matter without an external heat source or the manual injection of an accelerant.
