The danger associated with working in an underground mine with heavy machinery is nothing new. But sometimes it’s the dangers you can’t see that can cause the most damage. With the World Health Organisation raising the status of diesel engine exhaust to a grade 1 carcinogen, the need for better diesel filtration has never been greater.
That’s why IMEC are excited to have been engaged by Freudenberg Filtration, an industry leader in diesel particulate filters, to assist with the design & development of their mine fleet exhaust filter range.
The range of diesel particulate filters designed covers all mine equipment from loaders to Haul trucks to IT’s. Freudenberg’s superior filtration technology reduces CO emissions by up to 99%, hydrocarbons by 90%, NOx by 30% and most importantly carcinogenic Diesel Particulate by up to 95% +. This coupled with IMEC’s revolutionary muffler casing designs, enables the replacement of filters without removing the entire assembly, saving time and money.
