Reman boom stresses the need for vigilance!

Replacing a broken Euro VI silencer is a costly affair, so it’s really no wonder why truck owners increasingly turn to Remanufacturing. But as new markets bring new opportunities, new risks also surface.

A broken Euro VI silencer often involves one or several damaged catalysts or filters (commonly named “Substrates”), or a blockage of crystallized AdBlue® residues. Nothing that a professional remanufacturing workshop can’t fix, simply by replacing the substrates and cleaning the insides.

As a concept, Remanufacturing of Euro VI silencers is an obviously positive no-brainer. A good, professional reman-job results in a product that performs like new, with a CO2-footprint 80-90% lower, and a very attractive price-tag. Both planet & wallet win!

But as the market grows, quality variations rise, and pitfalls start to show. Recent findings by Dinex and our partners reveals that not all reman-suppliers are keen on upholding the same standards, and guess who’s stuck with the consequences: Drivers, and truck owners.

Why do Type Approvals matter?

Type Approval is your guarantee that vital technologies, such as catalysts (DOCs & SCRs) and particulate filters (DPFs), conform to Euro VI standards – both in terms of emission reduction, performance, and durability.

It’s easy to get your hands on cheap replacement substrates without Type Approval, and there is a huge risk of these ending up in remanufactured Euro VI silencers, unless the workshop and the buyer clearly insist on maintaining full compliance.
