The Particulator is designed to be fitted to smaller construction machines and removes diesel particulate matter from exhaust gas. It consists of a filter that is encased in a steel jacket and a control box to regenerate the filter when required and monitor back pressure.

The filter is made of cordierite, a synthetic ceramic, which provides high filtration whilst keeping back pressure low and regeneration is effected by burning off the fine diesel particles that get trapped in the channels of the filter – using a controlled heating cycle.

Using the particulator brings 99% reduction in soot particles when fitted to small diesel engines. This is the same exhaust gas filtration technology as used on the latest Stage V machines and is indispensable when operating diesel engines in confined spaces such as basement areas.
