Title Particulate filter against Diesel soot
Original title Partikelfilter contra Dieselruss [in German]
Bibliographic information Sep. 1991, No.5, p.4-6. Illus.
Abstract A filter for the removal of soot from the exhausts of industrial trucks, such as fork-lift trucks, is described. It is composed of three ceramic filter-sets housed in a steel casing. For additional conversion of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons in the exhaust a precious metal catalyst-coated version is available. The filter is regenerated usually after 8 hours by burning the collected soot. It is connected to the 220V mains for this purpose.
