The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has verified a diesel particulate filter with a safety device for use in the state. The BE Econix Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) from Boshart Engineering is now available for installation. According to CARB, the device meets fleet and air quality regulations.

“We were able to achieve the vision of including a safety device with a DPF through a diligent and dedicated effort of CARB,” said Ken Boshart, CEO. “We were thrilled to meet CARB requirements for our verification, which now allows us to provide the marketplace with BE Econix DPF that now ranks first in safety.”

According to Boshart, the BE Econix DPF active metal system with a patented safety device, initially approved for truck fleets that do not pass temperature cycle requirements, provides an added measure of safety that can be retrofit onto a wide range of existing heavy-duty diesel trucks that need an active or passive filter solution.  

The BE Econix DPF active metal system has the shortest regeneration time in the industry at less than 10 minutes and without a plug in, Boshart said.
