Exhaust filter maintenance essential – CV Show 2012

Eminox says now that operators have invested in particulate traps to meet the changes in London’s Low Emission Zone at the turn of the year they need to make sure the systems are maintained.

The company is offering filter servicing advice at the CV Show (stand 2G21). Marketing manager Kathye Henderson says failure to service units will mean operators having to spend more money. “If you’ve invested in it, you need to get it checked, as replacing the system is not cheap,” she says.

“Systems, like the DPF (diesel particulate filter) and CRT (continuously regenerating trap), are supplied with traffic light indicators to give early warning of any build up inside the filter; green is good, amber means its OK but get it checked, red means get it sorted out.

“On red short term affects includes worsening fuel consumption and potentially permanent damage that means replacing the unit,” she adds.

Eminox has been open during the evenings, nights and weekends to meet demand, and it has mobile services and ‘while you wait’ service at its three depots.

“Getting filters back to ‘as new’ levels of performance is more cost-effective in the long run and mean longer intervals between services,” she says.
