Diesel particulate filters (DPF) are a mainstay in reducing soot in engine exhaust. These combustion by-products are also contaminating engine lubricating oils and are most common with incomplete burning of hydrocarbons. The less soot/ash, the more efficient that engine’s performance. Diesel fuel treatment with FPC has been shown to result in LESS soot particle quantity and size as shown below. This lightens the load on downstream DPF equipment and oil change maintenance requirements.
In addition, OMSHR research has evaluated numerous control technologies to reduce emissions from diesel equipment. Evaluated control technologies include diesel particulate filters, alternative fuels (biodiesel), emissions-assisted maintenance programs, and fuel additives.
