Overview: Reduce Diesel Emissions in MINING Environments

Mining emission control system

Mining vehicles operating underground in poorly-ventilated areas, running 24 hours a day and 7 days a week present particularly challenging and important environmental issues.

If untreated, the diesel exhaust being emitted from these vehicles will be inhaled by the operators before dissipating. Increased exposure to diesel exhaust in poorly-ventilated mining areas is a factor in heart and lung disease, affecting workers' health, safety, and productivity. An emission control system will combat these serious health problems in mining environments

Diesel Retrofit Options for Mining

AZ Purifier Diesel Oxidation CatalystAZ Purifier Transit Diesel Retrofit Municipality Diesel Retrofit School Bus Diesel Retrofit Mining Diesel Retrofit Construction Diesel Retrofit
Emission Control System:
Diesel Oxidation Catalyst
Manufacturer: Engine Control Systems (ECS)

DOCs utilize a chemical process in order to break down pollutants from diesel engines in the exhaust stream, turning them into less harmful components. In this diesel retrofit, an AZ Purifier is installed upstream of the vehicle's original muffler, into a single integrated package, to reduce diesel emissions by an industry-leading, verified 20-40% (40% when paired with the Racor CCV).

AZ Purimuffler Diesel Oxidation CatalystAZ Purimuffler Transit Diesel Retrofit Municipality Diesel Retrofit School Bus Diesel Retrofit Mining Diesel Retrofit Construction Diesel Retrofit
Emission Control System:
Diesel Oxidation Catalyst
Manufacturer: Engine Control Systems (ECS)

The AZ Purimuffler utilizes the same DOC technology as the AZ Purifier, combining the AZ Purifier's catalyst and a silencer solution. The AZ Purimuffler can be designed as a direct fit replacement for the manufacturer's original muffler, meaning less down time & less invasive installation. The AZ Purimuffler can reduce diesel emissions by an industry-leading 20-40% (40% when paired with a Racor CCV).

MINE-X Diesel Particulate FilterMINE-X Transit Diesel Retrofit Municipality Diesel Retrofit School Bus Diesel Retrofit Mining Diesel Retrofit Construction Diesel Retrofit
Emission Control System:
Diesel Particulate Filter (Passive DPF)
Manufacturer: DCL International, Inc.

The MINE-X is a flow-through particulate filter that can reduce diesel emissions and lower backpressure more effectively than conventional wall-flow diesel particulate filters. This DPF removes up to 60% DPM and requires diesel fuel with sulfur content less than 500 ppm and works best with sulfur content less than 15 ppm (ULSD).

DZ Purifier DOC for miningDZ Purifier Mining Diesel Retrofit Construction Diesel Retrofit
Emission Control System:
Diesel Oxidation Catalyst
Manufacturer: Engine Control Systems (ECS)

The DZ series was the first diesel purifier in the industry to feature quick release band clamps. This allows the center body to be cleaned when used on older engines as well as facilitate engine-out opacity checks to diagnose engine problems.The DZ catalytic converter is supported on a metallic substrate, which affords exceptional resistance to vibration and affords the lowest possible exhaust backpressure.

EZ Purifier DOC for miningEZ Purifier Mining Diesel Retrofit Construction Diesel Retrofit
Emission Control System:
Diesel Oxidation Catalyst
Manufacturer: Engine Control Systems (ECS)

The EZ series offers the same metallic substrate, catalyst, and quality materials as the DZ series but features all welded construction for an ultra compact size and lower price. EZ purifiers are ideal when retrofitting light industrial and highway vehicles, where space for installation is limited. With an add-on silencer, the EZ is the most compact and durable diesel retrofit for reducing emissions and noise.

Cattrap DPF for miningCattrap Mining Diesel Retrofit
Emission Control System:
Diesel Particulate Filter (Passive DPF)
Manufacturer: Engine Control Systems (ECS)

Designed for mining and heavy industrial applications, the ECS Cattrap uses an advanced base metal soot ignition catalyst system to reduce diesel emissions (>85% DPM reduction) and toxic NO2 emissions. Listed on the US Mine Safety Health Administration Table 2 List of DPM Control Technologies, the ECS Cattrap is a diesel retrofit that can be employed in mining environments where most other DPFs cannot.

HUSS MK Diesel Particulate FilterMK System Transit Diesel Retrofit Municipality Diesel Retrofit School Bus Diesel Retrofit Mining Diesel Retrofit Construction Diesel Retrofit
Emission Control System:
Diesel Particulate Filter (Active DPF)
Manufacturer: Huss

The MK System's active regeneration is executed by a powerful diesel burner, which works independently from the exhaust gas temperature. Depending on filter size, dpf regeneration takes between 5 and 45 minutes, supervised by the HUSS control. The high-tech LPS-SiC removes a verified 99.9% of the harmful soot particles from the exhaust gases, providing you with a dependable diesel retrofit.

OEM Replacement DPF FiltersOEM Replacement Filters Transit Diesel Retrofit Municipality Diesel Retrofit School Bus Diesel Retrofit Mining Diesel Retrofit Construction Diesel Retrofit
Emission Control System:
DPF Filters for Maintenance
Manufacturer: DCL International, Inc.

Our aftermarket filters are brand new (not reconditioned), built as direct replacements of OEM parts for easy installation, tested to produce the same emission reductions and same backpressure as original units, and can be cleaned in the same manner as an OEM part. Purchasing a spare filter will minimize vehicle downtime, optimizing the benefits of your diesel retrofit.
