Rypos’ Diesel Particulate Filters Help Meet CARB Regulations

With the recent court decision upholding the California Air Resources Board (CARB) TRU ATCM regulation that went into effect on December 31, 2009, Rypos, is committed to continuing to work with TRU owners still in need of a cost-effective solution.

The company is working with several leading equipment finance companies to offer attractive lease terms through a program that is one of five funding options presented by the ARB*.  The CARB regulation requires all refrigerated trailers and bobtail units that are more than seven years old and operate in California to be modified or replaced to reduce particulate matter emissions.  The Rypos DPF/LETRU and the Proventia FTF and Bobtail FTF, both exclusively distributed in North America by Rypos, enable TRU fleet owners to retrofit their fleets of Carrier and Thermo King TRUs.

“Rypos continues to reach out to TRU owners to help them meet the CARB regulations as cost-effectively as possible,” says Peter Bransfield, CEO, Rypos Inc. “We continue to provide the most cost-effective and reliable solution for the community to comply with the CARB regulations.”

The Rypos DPF/LETRU is a highly effective self-cleaning diesel exhaust filter that uses an electrically conductive sintered metal fiber medium and electrical power from the TRU to regenerate the filter when needed. The Proventia FTF and the Proventia Bobtail FTF are both passive flow-through filters that use engine exhaust temperature to regenerate the filters.  Either option can generally be installed in less than two hours and provide the full seven years of compliance. Filter kits for most TRU models are available for immediate delivery and can be ordered by calling 800-609-4021 or emailing dgd@rypos.com.
