CTI’S HIGH-PERFORMANCE PARTICULATE FILTERS
Chicago, March 11, 2009 (word count: 194)
This new SiC composite DPF uses a patented manufacturing process (an innovative calcination process) that enables the production of a wide range of shapes and sizes at a very competitive cost. CTI’s SiC filter is in all cases three-to-four times under the limit of Euro 5 standard (5mg/km) on MVEG cycles. It also has shown excellent results (under 5.1011 part/km) for fine particulate filtration efficiency (SMPS tests) on IFP and various car manufacturers’ vehicle benches.
The CTI’s composite DPF has been implemented for many years on buses, trucks, and off-road vehicles with trouble-free servicing. It shows growing interest at OEMs with high performances demonstrated on passenger car applications.
