Diesel particulate filter Fischer Abgastechnik

Meet strict environmental regulations without compromising the vessel’s performance with the efficient diesel particulate filter (DPF) from Fischer Abgastechnik. The in-house designed and developed diesel particulate filter can remove soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine. The diesel particulate filter is suitable for all maritime sectors including shipping, shipbuilding, offshore, inland waterways, dredging, fishing and yachting.


About the diesel particulate filter (DPF) from Fischer Abgastechnik


The diesel particulate filter (DPF) from Fischer Abgastechnik is designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine for vessels that use marine heavy fuel oil or gas oil. Tests have shown that the diesel particulate filter in-house developed by Fischer is capable of removing more than 80% of particulate matter from diesel emissions.


Fischer Abgastechnik is able to deliver you as shipowner or shipyard the wall-flow diesel particulate filter that can usually remove 80% or more of the soot, the single-use diesel particulate filter (intended for disposal and replacement once full of accumulated ash) and the diesel particulate filter designed to burn off the accumulated particulate either passively through the use of a catalyst or by active means such as a fuel burner which heats the filter to soot combustion temperatures.


The process of removing the accumulated soot from the diesel particulate filter is called regeneration. In case of the diesel particulate filter in-house designed and developed by Fischer, this can be done either passively (from the engine's exhaust heat in normal operation or by adding a catalyst to the filter) or actively introducing very high heat into the exhaust system.

From a diesel particulate filter to a complete exhaust gas system


Fischer Abgastechnik is not a standard diesel particulate filter specialist. For general cargo ships, bulk carriers, container ships, auto carriers, tankers, fishing vessels, oil industry vessels, passenger ships, ferryboats, tow and tug boats, barges and specialized ships as an example, Fischer thinks in complete exhaust gas systems.


Through an optimal alignment and integration of the diesel particulate filter, SCR catalyst, exhaust silencer, spark arrester and suspension elements, Fischer Abgastechnik is able to advice you a complete exhaust gas system according to your wishes and needs. Furthermore Fischer Abgastechnik can do the integration of a flue gas cooler for a waste heat recovery system for delivering a more than energy-efficient exhaust gas system.


The core values from Fischer Abgastechnik


Fischer Abgastechnik is able to help shipowners and shipyards with meeting the requirements related to emission reduction. By using professional measuring devices, Fischer Abgastechnik performs several tests so that you can prove easily that your diesel particulate filter complies to all the diesel particulate matter emission standards.


Besides that, Fischer Abgastechnik understands that the space in the engine room of a vessel can be limited. Therefore Fischer Abgastechnik is specialized in tailor made solutions so that the diesel particulate filter can fit in almost any kind of new build or existing vessel with new or older engines installed.


Next to efficient diesel particulate filters, the systems from Fischer Abgastechnik are compact, have a nice look and are built according German standards.
