The cleaning is operated by our sister company Kipp Umwelttechnik GmbH within the cooperative association
mycon is searching for more global cooperation partners for FilterMaster DPF.
FilterMaster for cars – for vehicles up to 3,5 tons
The quality and efficiency of the DPF cleaning system “FilterMaster for cars” is impressive. Since no cutting and welding work is required, the entire housing including the pipes remains intact. The DPF cleaning processes previously used for car exhaust diesel particulate filters are therefore no longer contemporary and no longer competitive in terms of preserving the value invested in them.
The method also differs significantly from cleaning equipment and washcoat that rinses the filter with water and/or with water-based or other chemicals. Water can penetrate in the porous “washcoat” – which binds the catalytic metal particles. In contrast “FilterMaster for Cars” operates with purified compressed air to which a microscopic amount of active agent is added as an aerosol for just a short while. The active agent is non-toxic and could even be potable, except for its unpleasant taste. Research and practical experience have shown that the active agent will not damage the catalytic surfaces. The fact that the process does not damage exhaust particulate filters has been confirmed by several studies, including one at the University of Paderborn. No damage by the entry of “drinkable chemistry” was showed through the procedure test.
The story began in 2011 as part of a two-year grant project involving Kipp Umwelttechnik and the University of Paderborn. The project sought to develop a method for purifying exhaust gas particulate filters without having to dismantle or separation the supply and discharge lines to the filter. This project laid the foundation for the subsequent successful joint development “FilterMaster for cars”.
The benefits of the system “FilterMaster for cars” extend to several areas:
- Fully automatic cleaning minimizes the sources of errors
- Unsoiled and gentle cleaning maintains the catalytic qualities of the filter
- Cleaning without separating and welding work retains the quality of the filter housing
- Risks of damage, such as caused by fusion during the burning process at temperatures of 550°and more are avoided, since the filters are only treated with a temperature of 350° after the cleaning process
- Quick cleaning times reduce vehicle downtime
- The costs for filter cleaning are reduced
FilterMaster for trucks and more – for buses, vans, ships, lokomotives and more
This regeneration system constitutes a whole new design in comparison to the previous concepts in the DPF regeneration palette. In terms of cleaning speed and cleaning success the mycon system is a quantum leap ahead of previous conventional processes.
A variety of different special jet nozzles are utilised together with certain carbon dioxide/compressed air mixtures with additives as well as some additional industrial gases for the regeneration of the metal and ceramic filter surfaces. The entire filter surface is worn down in a controlled manner depending on the filter type and over 90% is cleansed of the original soot volume.
The process can be precisely controlled with every type of filter and processing can be accurately repeated. The system works in a closed-loop circuit. Adaptive flange rings enable the accommodation of almost every filter type and square filters of an older style can also be regenerated.
For the customer this means just one thing: Get startedAs with all mycon devices the new cleaning station is also available to lease without any investment costs, incl. the complete gas technology and gas delivery.
The test system of mycon GmbH
Inspection of exhaust particle filters (with sensors for measurement of the Differential pressure, supply of the test air, air generation unit, balancing discs for adjustment of the filter diameters).
This system is suitable for taking up exhaust particle filters up to a weight of about 200 kg, a length of 200 to 700mm, a diameter of 200 – 700 mm.
