Ceramex delivers the most effective restoration of Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) for all types of commercial vehicles and diesel-powered industrial equipment. Our patented, automated, cleaning and inspection technology meets the rapidly increasing market demand for commercial and industrial DPF cleaning and restoration that is both environmentally and cost conscious. Ceramex is trusted by many of the world’s leading commercial and off-highway vehicle manufacturers to keep their fleets compliant with increasingly stringent emissions legislation. Our products are also validated and approved and used by many of the most prestigious OEM’s across the globe. Primary Ceramex products are:
If you’ve been exposed to the world of diesel, you have probably wondered, “What is DPF?” A diesel particulate filter, or DPF, is an exhaust after treatment device that traps particulate matter such as soot and ash. A DPF typically uses a substrate made of a ceramic material that is formed into a honeycomb structure. In order to reduce emissions from diesel vehicles, diesel particulate filters capture and store exhaust soot, which must be periodically burned off to regenerate the filter. The regeneration process burns off excess soot deposited in the filter, which prevents harmful exhaust emission and the black smoke you commonly see emitted from diesel vehicles when accelerating. Engine manufacturers use DPFs to trap particulate matter in order to meet EPA 2007 emission standards.
A diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) is an after-treatment component that is designed to convert carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrocarbons into carbon dioxide (CO2) and water. It doesn’t matter if you are running your diesel engine on the road or off, you must still adhere to strict emissions standards. A diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) is an after-treatment device that can help you do that, as it effectively turns CO and hydrocarbons into CO2 and water vapor. It breaks down pollutants in the exhaust stream from a diesel engine, helping to reduce particulate matter (PM) and is very similar to a catalytic converter on a car or light truck.
Ceramex provides numerous benefits including superior performance over conventional cleaning processes including high capacity, fast turnaround, longer interval between cleans, up to 7% improvement in fuel consumption, and fewer expensive filters. Ceramex goes further than the competition and provides complete quality validation including full inspection reports, filter imaging for audits and monitoring, and full quality and process traceability throughout the restoration process.
