What is a Retrofit system and how does it help control emissions?

Retrofitting in for an emissions control system refers to the addition of new technology or feature to older systems. A retrofit solution for diesel vehicles involves adding an emission control device to remove emissions from the exhaust system.

So do Retrofit systems actually work?

In short yes, but to an everyday operator of a vehicle it can be hard to tell. The infrastructure of the vehicle is the same apart from an improved exhaust system. Performance is unhindered and the interior is identical, right down to the coffee stains on the passenger seat! Often the only way operators can tell that their vehicle has been modified is via the MIL light on the dash remaining off and the reassuringly bare welcome mat after a day in a Low Emission Zone because no fine has been issued!

Of course, if you had the time and the desire to test the emissions coming from the vehicle before and after retrofitting the difference would be stark. For example, you would see a 90% reduction of NOx and a >95% reduction in Particulate Matter being emitted under controlled conditions from the vehicle with the retrofitted exhaust system.

The NOxBUSTER® City system, provided by Proventia and installed by Excalibre Technologies, has been rigorously designed and tested to ensure that once fitted to your vehicle you (and those around you) can breathe easy knowing that your vehicle has a greatly reduced impact on the environment.

Prove it!

OK! As a part of the retrofit package Proventia provide real-time monitoring of the NOxBUSTER® City system to ensure that your vehicle is performing exactly as promised. This monitoring facility is called the PROCARE™ Drive and is offered via a web-based service accessible from any PC, tablet or smartphone with an internet connection 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The data is logged using a device installed on the vehicle allowing quick access to the NOx levels, exhaust gas temperature and backpressure data of all the NOxBUSTER® City systems in your fleet. The powerful PROCARE™ Drive can also provide data to improve the efficiency of the vehicles in the fleet, providing data on average vehicle speed, DPF and SCR operation alerts as well as AdBlue level, temperature and dosing rate information. All data can be easily exported for reporting purposes, shared with relevant parties and displayed graphically to ensure an ease of communication as required.

The data generated is collected and saved in the secure cloud storage and can easily be recalled as required. Minimal training is required to use the system with a simple user interface and setup provided. Access to the PROCARE™ Drive system is free of charge for the first year after installation and is only £166.00 per year thereafter.
