Exhaust gas filter cleaning with FilterMaster now with exhaust air cleaning by gas scrubber
The environmentally friendly exhaust filter cleaning with FilterMaster requires only approx. 2.00 l of theoretically drinkable liquid, to clean a car filter. Small amounts of residual liquid including residues are collected and subsequently rendered harmless by a certified disposal company.
When filters are burnt out, pollutants such as cyclic carbon compounds, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and fine dust can be released into the environment. With FilterMaster DPF, the filters are not burnt out, but only dried at lower temperatures after cleaning. However, emissions could also be released into the environment during this drying process.
To prevent emissions from escaping during the drying process, Kipp Umwelttechnik, together with its sister company mycon, has developed and installed a gas scrubber for the FilterMaster process with the support of a university. In the gas scrubber, the hot steam emerging from the drying oven is cleaned by demineralised water with additives. The pollutants remain in the gas scrubber and are disposed of by a certified specialist company.
Despite the resulting increase in cleaning costs, the FilterMaster prices for exhaust particle filter cleaning remain stable.
Ingo Kipp and Oliver Kipp, Managing Directors of Kipp Umwelttechnik GmbH:
“We are happy to assume the additional costs for investment and operation of the gas scrubber for the relief of the environment and for our good conscience.”
