AP Exhaust Technologies Inc. has released a line of diesel particulate filters (DPF) for replacement on Class 2 and 3 vehicles. Key applications include late model GM/Duramax, Dodge/Cummins, and Ford Powerstroke equipped diesel trucks.
The company says it is the first to market with the new diesel particulate filters for light- and medium-duty vehicles. The Class 2 and 3 DPF launch represents the initial offering for a comprehensive diesel program.
The new DPFs are built to deliver performance that is equivalent to the OEM unit, according to AP Exhaust. They filter out 99% of engine-out soot/PM (particulate matter) and feature the best backpressure levels available in the aftermarket today. Because the overall design features an optimized PGM (platinum group metals) loading, the new AP Exhaust units provide cleaner exhaust and increased durability.
“These new diesel particulate filters offer an exceptional value and a direct-fit solution for light and medium duty vehicles that are reaching their exhaust system life expectancy,” says Bill Kaminski, vice president of product development. “Our DPFs are not rebuilt or remanufactured. They are new designs that meet and deliver OEM-like performance specifications for fit, form, and function.”
