Northern Lights releases exhaust cleaning system
Northern Lights, the marine power generation and propulsion specialist, has launched its new solution for the removal of soot and particulate matter often associated with diesel powered equipment.
The Diesel Exhaust Cleaning System (DECS) is based on DCL International’s MARINE-X system. DECS removes particulates as they are emitted from the engine. It is designed to improve air and water quality in and around the vessel and to produce a cleaner environment onboard.
When equipped with DECS, exhaust gas is routed through a catalytically coated ceramic filter. Soot is trapped and the filter is kept free of restrictions. DECS uses a passive regeneration process and requires no additional equipment and regeneration time, functioning as normal while particulate matter is continually burned off using the heat emitted by the engine’s own exhaust.
Presuming an exhaust gas temperature of 300° C, the soot burns away and transforms into CO2.
DECS’ modular steel housing and removable elements are designed to withstand the harsh marine environment. The polished exterior of 304-stainless steel maintains a low-service temperature with a high polish to complement the engine room.
DECS is CARB Level 3 verified and NO2 compliant. It is custom engineered to best fit the engine room configuration and individual filtration needs. The monitoring system records critical engine information while meeting or exceeding classification society requirements.
“DCL International’s emissions control technology has been proven to be effective on a global scale,” said Northern Lights director of marketing, Colin Puckett. “DECS will provide an ideal solution for the new generation of yachts that will be managing exhaust systems using safer, more practical and reliable technology.”
