Bespoke fume extraction system to enable in-house vehicle DPF regeneration

As part of our workshop installation design scheme, and comprised within our LEV extraction system, CCS created 2 bespoke fume extraction points to enable in-house vehicle DPF regeneration. Initiating the regneration process cleans the DPF, keeping National Express’ vehicles running and in good condition. This process requires vehicles to be run at heavy load within the workshop, generating heat for a sufficient length of time to burn off particulates deposited inside the filter. Our bespoke LEV system incorporates hoses and fans which can handle the high fume volumes and demands created by the regeneration process.

Oil monitoring system to improve management of workshop resources
