OXNARD, Calif. — Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. (CDTi), a leader in advanced emission control solutions, today officially launched DuraFit™, its new line of all makes original equipment manufacturer (OEM) replacement diesel particulate filters (DPFs) — leveraging their proprietary catalyst technology within a new market segment.
Designed and manufactured in North America, DuraFit DPFs are cost-effective, exact-fit alternatives to OEM replacements, meet or exceed OEM emission requirements, and are fully supported by CDTi's nationwide distributor network and field application specialists. Sales of CDTi's DuraFit DPFs commenced in June.
The DuraFit DPFs address a growing opportunity in the heavy duty aftermarket to replace original equipment DPF units. According to market analysis firm Power System Research, North American OEMs have produced an average of 250,000 heavy duty on-road diesel vehicles equipped with DPFs each year since 2007 to comply with Environmental Protection Agency requirements. The typical OEM warranty on DPFs is five years and has expired for many of these vehicles with more continuing to expire in the coming years. As 2007 and newer DPFs from OEMs fail and require replacement, aftermarket DPFs are needed as replacements – creating this emerging opportunity. According to a 2012 industry report, the market for medium- and heavy-duty vehicle after-treatment maintenance and repair is projected to grow from a half-billion dollars in 2010 to $3 billion by 2017.
According to CDTi's Vice President of Sales Ian MacDonald, "When you choose DuraFit, you're choosing a replacement built to improve durability and keep your equipment running longer. DuraFit DPFs provide emissions reductions equivalent to OEM units and are designed for quick installation to get your equipment back in service faster. Our existing emission technologies and over 30 years of heavy-duty diesel experience, positions us to efficiently service this new market opportunity."
