Self Study Program 336 – The catalytic coated diesel particulate filter
Self Study Program 336 – The catalytic coated diesel particulate filter Design and function PDF. The reduction of particulate emissions from diesel engines is a great challenge in this day and age. In addition to engine measures, exhaust gas treatment is of particular importance to help achieve this.
The particulate filter is an effective method to remove carbon soot particles that are inherent in diesel emissions.
The most common filter systems comprise of an oxidisation catalyst and a particulate filter. On the catalytic coated particulate filter from Volkswagen, the catalyst and filter have been combined to form one single unit. With this particulate filter system, the particulates can be burnt off continually without the addition of a fuel additive, thanks to the design and installation position close to the engine.
