The high focus on emission control of soot and NOx gasses from diesel engines has led to an increasing demand for ceramic filters. Such ceramic filters can trap more than 99% of the harmful soot particles.
Silicon Carbide’s ability to withstand high temperatures during regeneration of the filter and its low thermal expansion make SiC an excellent candidate for diesel particulate filters, especially for passenger cars, but also for retro fit of filters for busses, trucks and the off-road market.
Honeycomb ceramic filters made of silicon carbide are formed by extrusion and bonded either by recrystallization or reaction bonded to control the pore size and distribution.
Saint-Gobain is offering a variety of tailor made products for the production of diesel particulate filters.
We are thrilled to announce the acquisition of the Silicon Carbide business by OpenGate Capital. OpenGate is a leading global private equity firm specialized in corporate carve-outs.
The new company name will be Fiven. You can still contact us through this site and the phone numbers / email addresses known to you for the moment. We are eagerly working on a new website and will be happy to welcome you as a visitor soon on www.fiven.com.
