AGAE Technologies, LLC, a specialty chemical company in Corvallis Oregon, announces breakthrough technologies in diesel particulate filter (DPF) cleaning. AGAE’s solvent-free, aqueous cleaning solutions, formulated with rhamnolipid biosurfactant and other natural ingredients, are highly effective and economical for cleaning DPFs. DPF cleaning and effectiveness have been constant challenges for DPF users. AGAE’s new technologies meet these challenges.
Insufficiently filtered diesel engine exhaust is a major source of vehicle-generated air pollution worldwide, including particulate matter pollutants PM 2.5. DPFs play a critical role in trapping and preventing diesel engine exhaust pollutants such as these from directly discharging into the environment; however, insufficiently cleaned filters are not fulfilling this vital role. AGAE’s new technologies can make DPFs perform as originally designed while also keeping cleaning costs at a minimum.
The excellent cleaning capabilities of AGAE’s DPF cleaning solutions are well-documented in a pending patent. AGAE’s DPF cleaning solutions in an advanced DPF cleaning machine produced unprecedented exogenous residue removals of up to 1.2 kg, while current DPF cleaning technologies are typically only able to remove 0.01 to 0.1 kg. In addition, the backpressures of AGAE’s formula-cleaned DPFs were restored to their original manufacturer specifications. The low cost and high performance of AGAE’s DPF cleaning solutions enable DPF users to affordably and effectively be in full compliance with the strictest standards for DPF use as set by the State of California.
Due to their endurance and exceptional performance, the use of diesel-powered engines has steadily increased in cars, trucks, buses, ships, and industrial facilities; despite this increase, thoroughly cleaned and functionally efficient DPFs can fundamentally guarantee cleaner air and a healthier environment, while simultaneously helping to reduce global warming.
AGAE’s DPF cleaning technologies are immediately beneficial for diesel-powered engines, and for air pollution control and global warming reduction.
These DPF cleaning technologies were developed by AGAE Technologies in collaboration with CES R&D Inc. and DPF Cleaning LLC. These California-based companies specialize in development of advanced DPF cleaning machines and cleaning services.
