Paccar Parts dealers are now offering the Engine Control Systems Purifilter, an aftermarket passively regenerating diesel particulate filter (DPF) approved by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and distributed exclusively through U.S. and Canadian Kenworth and Peterbilt dealers.
“We’re pleased to offer the Engine Control Systems Purifilter because of its reliability and durability,” said Jeff Sass, general marketing manager for Paccar Parts. “It was the first DPF recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to reduce particulate matter emissions by 85% and the first passive DPF to meet CARB’s strict 20% nitrogen oxides requirement. With that kind of reduction, truck operators will meet CARB’s new emission regulations.
“The California Air Resources Board intends to provide up to $1 billion in state money to defray the cost of buying and installing the diesel particulate filters,” Sass added. “Truck operators who buy and install these diesel particulate filters now, ahead of deadlines, may be eligible for larger grants.”
Approved for use with 1993 through 2006 model year heavy-duty trucks from several manufacturers, the Purifilter DPF features superior regeneration, performance and durability, Paccar Parts said. It also received conditional verification from CARB for use with some 1996 to 2008 off-road diesel engines.
According to Paccar Parts, each model is available in five different inlet/outlet configurations with either standard stamped flanges or optional machined flanges, and features a 100% stainless steel modular design that allows 360 degree rotation of the muffler inlet and outlet sections.
