SMF-FBC Diesel Particulate Filters With Fuel Borne Catalyst

The Stratus SMF-FBC model is the latest generation of diesel particulate filter featuring continous regeneration with no downtime.

Stratus SMF-FBC is ideal for larger diesel engines up to 800 hp and output ranges from 75 to 600 kW. It requires only an exhaust temperature above 380°C for 10% of the operating time.

SMF-FBC uses a fuel borne catalyst and continuously regenerates during engine operation. Designed with a Stratus sintered metal element, SMFFBC is bult to last the lifetime of the engine.

Unlike other diesel particulate filters with oxidation catalysts, SMF-FBC also reduces NO2 emissions – a significant advantage for mining applications.

A complete system consists of the filter, plus software, electronics and sensors. SMF-FBC is fully automatic.

Key Advantages
  • Low running costs
  • Easy cleaning
  • Low lifetime costs
  • No machine downtime
  • Quick regeneration
  • Reduces NO2 emissions by up to 70%
  • No dependency on type of diesel fuel
  • Higher engine performance
  • Lower fuel consumption


SMF-FBC Operations

The regeneration of the SMF-FBC system is made continuously and is fully automatic as soon as the exhaust gas temperature exceeds 380°C.

The additive automatically dosed to the fuel lowers the ignition temperature of the soot and accelerates the regeneration process. The sintered metal filter considerably reduces particle emissions by more than 99% for particle count in the range of 20 – 300 nm.

SMF-FBC filters the soot, regenerates itself and also reduces the NO2 emissions of the exhaust gas. The reduction of NO2 depends on the amount of soot added to the filter (NO2 reduction of up to 70% is possible).


Conditions for use Stratus SMF-FBC
  • Exhaust gas temperatures on the filter > 380°C for at least 10% of the operating time
  • Use for Tier I, Tier II or Tier III engines or comparable classes (e.g. EU)
  • Permissible exhaust gas backpressure must be observed according to the application
  • Engine output range 75 – 600 kW
