A Diesel Particulate Filter System Using Assisted Regeneration for Mechanical Handling Equipment 910134
A cooperative R&D program involving Engine Control Systems Ltd. (ECS) and Consolidated Freightways, Inc. (C-F) has resulted in a diesel emissions control system for small to medium sized mechanical handling equipment.
This paper outlines the design specifics of the system with an emphasis on the manner in which forktrucks can relatively easily be retrofitted. Both laboratory and in-field test results are outlined. The particulate filter system uses electric power to induce regeneration when backpressure rises to unacceptable levels.
