Eminox, a leading European designer and manufacturer of exhaust and emission-control systems for heavy-duty vehicles, has recently launched its new range of original equipment-quality Euro VI replacement diesel particulate filters (DPFs).
The new range shares the same ISO- and TS-certified UK design and manufacturing facilities as the Euro VI and Stage V standard products provided to the company’s vehicle customers, which include some of Europe’s largest OEMs.
The growing global focus on air quality means an increasing number of cities around Europe, such as London, are implementing ultra-low emissions zones (ULEZs), which require diesel trucks and buses to be Euro VI Standard compliant. The DPF is a key component of Euro VI systems, collecting soot particles from exhaust gases before they leave the vehicle. Eminox recommends that DPFs are checked, and cleaned if required, at every service. If not maintained correctly, a DPF can become blocked or even damaged, forcing its replacement and increasing vehicle downtime.
“As tighter emissions regulations come into force, we expect the need for Euro VI DPF replacement to grow significantly across Europe,” said Neil Koston, Eminox’sAftermarket product manager. “Until now the only safe option in case of problems was to buy from the OEM. Our new range offers a high-quality, cost-effective alternative, backed by a full warranty. Eminox’s emissions reduction experience and British manufacturing expertise really show that quality doesn’t have to cost the earth.”
The range will be available to the European aftermarket from Eminox’s network of distribution agents from summer 2018.
