The traffic Agency's principgodkendelses system:









Requirements specification





 





Here you can view the requirements as a matter of principle approved filters complies with:





 



Particle filter intended to replace the existing muffler and must provide at least the same level of noise attenuation.





 





The claim shall be deemed observed if the test of driving noise on motor with filter for maximum permissible effect gives the noise measurement of less than the retail prescriptions for vehicles required value based on engine size. The measurement must be done on the main filter for which approval is sought for.





 



The filter must provide a maximum back pressure of 20 kPa in the engine's maximum power.





 





The claim shall be deemed to be complied with by the submission of documentation too, reaction on engine with filter for maximum permissible effect.





 



The filter must be designed and installed so that during operation and regeneration occurs risk for ignition of the surroundings.





 





Technological Institute evaluates the filter construction and installation instructions.





 



The filter must reduce at least 80% of particle emissions measured in the dilution tunnel according to EEC Directive 88/77 (stationary 13-mode test) on a Euro 1 engine (Directive 88/77 amended by 91/542 level A). Used reference fuel with a maximum sulphur content of 50 ppm. The measured emissions shall be representative of the emissions through practical application.





 





A reduction of 80% correspond to the order for the strengthening of the Euro 3 to Euro 4. The test must be done on an engine for at the same time ensuring that Euro1 filter works at high emissions. Measurement on the second motor can be accepted, if the result is expected to be equivalent in accordance with the technological Institute's assessment.







There must also be attached to the measurement results of CO, HC, NOx and NO2.





 



Filter the manufacturer sets a maximum limit value for smoke density measured under free acceleration, where the filter will be operational. The filter must be fitted with gauge outlet before the filter so that the engine maintenance mode can be monitored.





 





The manufacturer may specify additional requirements for opacity if it varies with the instance. filter-or engine size.





 




By continuous operation must smoke after the filter, measured under free acceleration as detailed for the periodical survey, does not exceed a K-value of 0.2 m-1.





 





The manufacturer shall submit Declaration.





 



The filter condition should be continuously monitored. This must be done in the form of a tale in the driving position, which warns against excessive back pressure.





 





The manufacturer shall submit relevant material.





 



If the filter system operation leads to increased emissions during operation or reclamation, should these facts be illuminated.





 





The manufacturer shall submit relevant material.





 



The filter must be designed in order to be functional in the car's normal life when both filter as engine serviced in accordance with the manufacturer's common service requirements.





 





The manufacturer shall submit Declaration.





 



There must be prepared a detailed service manual, which also provides a work environment description that lives up to the Danish working environment service's recommendations. There must also be a guide in connection with the disposal.





 





The working environment at the service of particulate filters is very important. It therefore required that the manufacturer shall draw up a detailed guide, taking account of the Danish working environment service's recommendations.





 



It is assumed that the used fuel with a maximum sulphur content of 50 ppm. Requires a filter system addition of special additives in the fuel, must these be added automatically during normal operation of the car. Exempted from this requirement are vehicles in a car park, where fueling alone beings from his own tank installations.







Where additives make technological Institute an evaluation system for the purpose of safety of the additive for addition of correct dosage with additive.
