Abstract:
Recent studies have shown that SiC provides substantial advantages for use as the material for wall flow diesel particulate filters. In addition to very advantageous thermal properties, it has been shown that SiC based filter material has higher permeability than Cordierite.This paper presents a comparison of the basic flow characteristics of SiC based and Cordierite based wall flow filter material, expressed in terms of parameters which are basic materials properties that are independent of filter geometry.In addition, the flow characteristics of the particulate matter collected on the filter during engine operation are presented. The results show that the advantageous flow characteristics observed with the basic filter material are retained for loaded filters, up to very high loadings.
