The effects of the factors of reverse pulse air regeneration; pulse air pressure, pulse air time and pulse air interval, were evaluated. Pulse air pressure significantly affects a DPF's pressure drop increase. Pulse air time and pulse air interval do not greatly affect a DPF's pressure drop.Current DPFs and samples with modified materials were tested. The pressure drop increse varied with the material properties, such as mean pore size and porosity.Current DPFs are applicable to a DPF system with reverse pulse air regeneration. There is the possibility to get an optimum DPF for the reverse pulse air regeneration system by changing the mean pore size, porosity and/or other properties.
