Sintered Metal filters with Manual Regeneration
These filters saturated with soot will ignite at +-400⁰C automatically, forming ash that will be collected in the filter housing. This ash, under normal conditions, needs only be removed every 1200 operating hours, or with each service interval by releasing two clamps. The cleaning proses comprises of spraying the filter with a high pressure water hose, and then allowing the filter to dry before inserting it back inside the filter housing.
