These records may not be associated with a regeneration event. The regen should not be abused, which means that you should only attempt to perform regeneration, if your bus needs it. Carbon dioxide is the preferred product, but increased carbon monoxide emission may occur if oxygen is depleted in the reaction zone. The bottom portion of the viewing area allows the user to view the data associated with either the Maximum Soot Load condition or the Maximum Diesel Particulate Filter Outlet Temperature condition achieved over the life of the engine. The more heat generated the better to melt down the soot and ash. Exhaust system components can become hot enough during operation and testing to cause burns or ignite and melt combustible materials. The inner switch should be kept in the lower position.
However, relatively high temperatures are necessary to achieve appreciable regeneration rates with O 2. Frankly, I think the whole regen thing is stupid and fuel wasting. There are 4 possible values that can be displayed: Normal, Above Normal - Least Severe, Above Normal - Moderately Severe or Above Normal - Most Severe. The materials at this site may be out of date, and www. Habitual rule breakers that have exhausted all of the above will receive a permanent life-time ban that will be strictly enforced.
A wheel chair bus is at risk to having more trouble because of the in town stop and start without a lot of highway driving. I think the interval changed with oil and filter quality improvements over the years. When it is in the upper position, this does not allow the computer to initiate regen on its own. After the time was up the driver brought the bus home without any trouble. Reading codes and working with the emissions system requires the latest version of software to properly troubleshoot problems. Another possible way to keep the exhaust system cleaned out is to drive at highway speed for at least 20 minutes.
Maximum Diesel Particulate Filter Differential Pressure: This parameter gives the maximum Diesel Particulate Filter Differential Pressure recorded during the regeneration event. To facilitate filter regeneration on diesel engines in real operation the exhaust gas temperature has to be increased or the soot ignition temperature has to be lowered using a catalyst. In this case, it is recommended to perform the stationary regeneration procedure. All reported posts will be addressed and dealt with as deemed appropriate by Firehouse.

Will it hurt anything to just let it sit in the garage a couple of weeks before our next trip? We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of this policy at any time. Terms listed in this document may be superseded by specific terms elsewhere on the sites www. Reinstatement will not be allowed — there is no appeal process. The software for each diesel engine in our fleet is invaluable and we would be lost without it. We don't have an extended drive planned for a couple of weeks.
In my experience it has to be done about every 2 weeks depending on usage. Freightliner Cascadia '11 Any tips, ideas, or help of any kind would be appreciated. User Submissions Any material, information or idea you transmit to or post on this Site by any means including, but not limited to e-mails sent to www. The rate of soot oxidation is significantly lower than that of the oxidation of gaseous exhaust pollutants, such as carbon monoxide. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them. It records data associated with last 10 active regeneration events both complete and incomplete.
This monitor reads from Diesel Particulate Filter Inlet Temperature Sensor, which gives the temperature at the inlet of the diesel particulate filter and is usually the sensor located midway in the aftertreatment system. I drive a Sutphen every 3rd day as well as sell them. Catalog Information The catalog information is furnished for the convenience of our customers and is accurate as possible. At low temperatures 360°C, 400°C the oxidation rates are very slow and the regeneration is incomplete. If your need is urgent, please contact www. Here, we will give an overview of these three types of regeneration.
I've tried everything I know to do: I've shifted into gear and back into neutral, deactivated and engaged the parking break, depressed the clutch twice and the brake pedal twice, and held the Regen switch for the required 5 seconds. I tried a few days back to reschedule, but I won't be able to get in for another 3 weeks. From what I remember, this means I need to perform a parked regen. Subsequent accounts created in an effort to side-step the rules and moderation process are subject to automatic removal without notice. This behavior is also seen in diesel filters, which regenerate faster when the soot loading is higher.
