LP EGR filter with 3D mesh

Vehicle manufacturers and suppliers are working in close partnership to develop new solutions for reducing fuel consumption and thereby also CO2 emissions. Low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation (LP EGR) systems are one example of how they are attempting to increase the efficiency of diesel engines. These systems operate on the clean air side downstream of the particle filter with a policing filter to protect the engine and turbocharger from soot and abrasive particles.

Volkswagen (VW) commissioned Emitec (Gesellschaft für Emissionstechnologie GmbH), a specialist in exhaust gas after-treatment with metallic catalytic converter holders and particle filters, to develop a new generation of LP EGR filters for filtering out particles and soot with minimum loss of pressure. Volkswagen selected the innovative Volumetric Mesh, from the leading international technical weaving mill GKD – Gebr. Kufferath AG, as the filter material first installed in the Golf 7 GTD.
