What is the function of a diesel exhaust system?
A diesel exhaust system has several key functions that are essential to the operation of your vehicle or fleet. Firstly, it helps to filter harmful emissions that are produced during the combustion process. These emissions, including nitrogen oxides and particulate matter, can have a negative impact on air quality and contribute to climate change. A properly functioning exhaust system will reduce these emissions to acceptable levels, ensuring that your vehicle is compliant with environmental regulations.
A well-maintained diesel exhaust system contributes to the performance and efficiency of your vehicle or fleet. An exhaust system that is not functioning properly can lead to reduced fuel economy, increased emissions, and reduced engine performance. This can not only have a negative impact on your bottom line, but it can also lead to costly repairs down the line.
Your diesel truck’s exhaust travels through a series of exhaust tubing and through several components of the afertreatement process before entering the environment. These components are as follows:
- Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF): captures soot, carbon, and other harmful emissions and prevents them from exiting your system.
- Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) & SCR Catalyst: responsible for converting harmful emissions like carbon monoxide and NOx into their most basic components. This renders them almost completely harmless once expelled.
