Thermo King’s TriPac DPF, available as either an aftermarket or original equipment option, is now CARB certified, the company announced.
In addition to being designed to meet CARB regulations, the TriPac diesel particulate filter (DPF) offers several other features important to drivers and owners, the company said.
Regeneration, the process of burning off particulate matter trapped in the filter element, takes place during normal driving hours with no disruption to the driver during rest periods. Plus, extended APU runtime between regenerations assures minimal driver involvement, Thermo King said.
The TriPac DPF does not reduce fuel economy and will place no extra strain on the APU, nor will it alter scheduled maintenance intervals, Thermo King said. Also, the filter reduces engine noise. It includes nine different mounting options, based on vehicle considerations, enabling easy installation on most modern tractors despite the trend of less available frame rail space. The DPF is also designed for minimal maintenance.
