Recent advances in mine safety and occupational hygiene have resulted in a large number of diesel vehicles and plant being fitted with particle filters. These filters, when working correctly, greatly reduce particle emissions, so it is essential that their efficiency can be periodically checked The Pacific provides the capability to perform these checks quickly and accurately.
Targeted engine maintenance can drastically reduce diesel particulate matter (DPM) emissions which can contribute to serious health concerns.
The Pacific is the tool that mechanical and workshop staff need in order to reliably identify high DPM emitters, and to validate the effectiveness of emissions-related maintenance. It is highly automated, with only a single press-button required to initiate and run a test. It is designed for ease of use by maintenance personnel as an everyday workshop tool, after only minimal training, but retains the flexibility to support more complex research or investigative activities.
Routine maintenance of the dPM-RT2 is limited to checking and periodically replacing one disposable filter.
