Diesel Particulate Filter Optimization 2003-01-0376

Recrystallized Silicon carbide (R-SiC) honeycombs have been widely used over the last couple of years as filtration media for diesel particulates filtration in passenger cars applications. Although such filters are very reliable thanks to SiC good properties and smart designs, existing devices can still be improved.
This paper describes several new features developed for R-SiC honeycomb filters in order to increase their durability and reduce their cost. Durability improvements can be obtained through the optimization of different filter properties such as thermo-mechanical resistance and thermal diffusivity. Specific tests have been performed in order to optimize new R-SiC filters.
