The Diesel Particle Filter

Controlled regeneration

Our D7E engine is equipped with a Diesel Particle Filter (DPF). It captures and processes the microscopic soot particles in engine exhausts during regeneration, leaving only a fine ash. The process is automatic, but when manual regeneration is needed – within an environmental zone for instance – you’ll be alerted well in time.
