View Thread: Diesel particulate filter for Passat and Passat Estate


kak
Volkswagen has extended the engine line-up for the Passat, its successful mid-size model. The saloon and the estate versions are now available with a 100 kW/136 hp four-cylinder turbo diesel engine. The 2.0-litre TDI with a six-speed manual gearbox is fitted with a diesel particulate filter as standard. The additive-assisted diesel particulate filter is located away from the engine in the vehicle underbody. Its housing is made of stainless steel and contains an innovative filter block made of silicon carbide (Si-SiC) with alternate inlet and outlet channels. The inlet channels facing the engine form a "cul-de-sac” for the soot particles. Only the exhaust gasses are able to pass through the porous ceramic wall into the neighbouring outlet channel.
