Detroit Diesel Sintered Metal Filter Achieves CARB Level 3+ Certification

REDFORD, Mich. – Detroit Diesel today announced that Cleaire Advanced Emission Controls’® LongMile® diesel particulate filter containing Detroit Diesel’s sintered metal filter technology has been verified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) as Level 3+. This designation – the highest level of certification from CARB – means that the filter has successfully demonstrated diesel particulate matter emission reductions of more than 85 percent while meeting the NOx emission standards.

Developed and manufactured in Detroit Diesel’s state-of-the-art Redford, Mich., facility, the filter, which is supplied to Cleaire Advanced Emission Controls, is an integral part of Cleaire’s LongMile retrofit emission control system. The LongMile system can be installed on older diesel engines to achieve essentially equivalent to 2007 EPA particulate matter emissions standards. The new CARB verification enables the LongMile system to be installed on 1993 through 2006 model year engines from displacements of 5.3 to 16 liters.

“The Level 3+ CARB certification of our sintered metal filter means more customers with older vehicles have the option to retrofit their engines to bring them into compliance throughout the nation as mandates come into effect,” said Daniel Haggerty, director, aftermarket marketing, Daimler Truck North America. “We’re committed to working with Cleaire to develop cost-efficient and effective solutions to help our customers meet emissions standards and navigate the ever-changing emissions landscape.”

Cleaire retrofit systems are designed to reduce emissions caused by diesel-powered vehicles. Local, regional and state government agencies are regulating the emissions from in-use diesel engines. Cleaire’s retrofits have been specifically developed to help all-makes of pre-2007 trucks and buses meet those evolving regulations.
