Volvo Trucks, Mack Offer Retrofit Solution For California

Posted on February 9, 2009

Volvo Trucks North America and fellow Volvo Group company Mack Trucks Inc. have begun offering dealer-installed retrofit diesel particulate filters (DPF) to meet strict new California emissions requirements for in-use vehicles. The DPFs are designed to work with non-EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) engines sold from 1996 to 2002.

The retrofit DPF is integrated into existing exhaust systems and offered in several sizes based upon engine displacement and horsepower. Each retrofit DPF comes with an installation kit, complete with brackets, engineered for the customer’s specific Volvo or Mack truck model. Dealer installation is required.

The DPFs come with a five year/150,000 mile warranty and can be ordered through any Volvo Trucks or Mack Trucks dealer in the U.S. and Canada.
