It has been said that necessity is the mother of invention and modern compression ignition engines are such an example of remarkable engineering. In order to achieve their necessary power and performance every facet of each component is in finely tuned balance. Further development arose thanks to the necessity to comply with emissions standards, and several techniques to cater to this requirement emerged. But why do we have more than one filter in the exhaust system and what are their differences?

It’s safe to say that we aren’t that great at predicting the future and hindsight helpfully highlights exactly how far off track we were. So given how hard the future is to predict is it possible for an after sales department to see ahead and future proof the workshop accordingly? And if it is conceivable, then how far ahead is it possible to plan?
