Exhaust Gas Cleaner Introduced by Northern Lights

Press Release
Thursday, August 02, 2012

Northern Lights provides soot & particulate matter removal solution for diesel engine exhausts with DECS.

DECS, or Diesel Exhaust Cleaning System, is based on DCL International’s MARINE-X™ system which removes particulates as they are emitted from the engine. Air and water quality in and around the vessel are thereby vastly improved.

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. Unlike competitors’ active systems which require additional equipment and regeneration time, with DECS, the Northern Lights generator set functions as normal while particulate matter is continually burned off using the heat emitted by the engine’s own exhaust.

At a conservatively rated exhaust gas temperature of 300° C, the soot burns away and transforms into harmless CO2. DECS’ modular steel housing and removable elements are designed to thrive in the unforgiving 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, and is custom engineered to be application specific to best fit the engine room configuration and individual filtration needs. The fully featured monitoring system records critical engine information while meeting or exceeding classification society requirements.
