Top in form – Optimized method for commercial vehicle canning
More compact exhaust systems for commercial vehicles that reduce pollutant emissions even more efficiently? This is possible with the new Eberspächer canning method: Oval canning for commercial vehicle makes optimum use of the installation space and offers more flexibility in the design of exhaust systems. In canning, a machine uses mounting mats to position large ceramic substrates (monoliths) in the metallic housings. The catalytic coated monoliths are an important part of the catalytic converter. Due to the new shape, it is possible to accommodate the same amount of the ceramic substrate while taking up less space. If more catalyst volume is required for exhaust-emission conversion, it is also possible to use more substrate with the same installation space as before – entirely as required by the customer. With innovations such as oval canning, Eberspächer is continuously working on an even cleaner mobility. Further information
