Filtration products from Eminox provide a means for diesel vehicle operators to continue to meet ULEZ and Euro VI air cleanliness standards.
Bringing its emissions reduction expertise to the aftermarket, Eminox has launched its new range of original equipment-quality Euro VI replacement diesel particulate filters (DPFs).
Founded 40 years ago, Eminox was one of the first suppliers of DPFs to heavy-duty vehicle manufacturers, working with Volvo on Euro III emissions reduction from 1991. 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’s Aftermarket 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 type-approved DPFs are OBD compatible and certified to UNECE Regulation 49 – the same standard as the vehicle itself. As they are BER compliant, fitting an Eminox DPF does not compromise any remaining vehicle warranty. To guarantee peace of mind, they are backed by a two-year, 200,000km warranty from Eminox. All required gaskets and clamps are included at no extra cost.
