Premier’s new innovative DPF Tester detects DPF removal, manipulation and/ or failure by measuring particulate emission levels invisible to opacity meters at PTI/MOT. It offers an alternative to the current mandated visual inspection and EOBD. The DPF Tester samples emissions during a short, automated test at idle before “judging” DPF filtration efficiency against pre-set Euro limits with a simple Pass or Fail result.
The DPF Tester uses the scattering of IR radiation to measure particle density released by diesel vehicles with compromised DPFs, which are “unseen” by opacity meters to ensure such vehicles are identified for repair and maintenance. Designed to target and stop gross polluters from harming air quality and public health. The simple design comprises of a test stand with a measuring head and a flexible sample pipe for insertion into the tailpipe.
