Denso to Launch Replacement Aftertreatment Devices in March

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Denso Products and Services Americas Inc., an affiliate of Denso Corp., will begin accepting orders for its new diesel particulate filter and diesel oxidation catalyst replacement products for heavy-duty trucks in March, the company said.

Denso will distribute the products — known as PowerEdge — and Clean Diesel Technologies Inc. will manufacture the components, Denso said.

“If you look at the forecast for this market it is about $2.8 billion dollars by 2020, when it will become the second-largest aftermarket segment next to tires,” Frank Jenkins, senior manager of Denso’s heavy-duty marketing group, said during part of the Technology & Maintenance Council annual meeting here. TMC is a division of American Trucking Associations.

To begin with, the all-makes replacement program features 60 DPF parts numbers covering more than 260 original equipment-quality products and seven DOC part numbers for heavy-duty on-road and off-road trucks and equipment, Denso said.

Plans call for expanding the product line with an additional 20 DPF and 15 DOC part numbers later this year, according to the company.

The PowerEdge diesel aftertreatment replacement DPFs and DOCs match or exceed the emissions control performance and benefits of OE-manufacturer replacement units when installed in 2007 and newer heavy-duty diesel equipment, Denso said.

The features include: high-grade stainless steel and other materials that increase durability by resisting corrosion and preventing failures; substrates from Corning Inc. that maximize DPF performance and minimize back pressure; CDTi’s patented advanced coatings that increase catalization and regeneration efficiency; plus exact-fit designs that include gaskets to meet specific application needs, reduce part numbers and streamline installation, Denso said.

The turn-key DPFs and DOCs are approved for horizontal, vertical and dual installation and backed by a two-year unlimited mileage warranty, Denso said. Many of the components are manufactured in the United States.
