Clean Diesel Technologies (CDTi) is to supply DuraFit, its new line of original equipment manufacturer (OEM) replacement diesel particulate filters (DPFs), to the New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) fleet.

The DSNY operates the largest municipal-owned sanitation fleet in the world consisting of around 3,000 vehicles including refuse collection trucks and mechanical street sweepers.

Mondial Automotive, a regional distributor for CDTi, will supply DuraFit products to the DSNY fleet.

“This important fleet win with DSNY demonstrates the growing distribution reach of DuraFit, which addresses the US$300m plus replacement filter market,” said CDTi president and CEO, Chris Harris.

“DuraFit is an important growth driver in our Heavy Duty Diesel Systems division. We are excited the DSNY selected DuraFit to provide durability and service life, as well as filtration performance that either meets or exceeds the requirements of increasingly stringent environmental regulations.”

Rocco DiRico, deputy commissioner with DSNY, added: “This product has and will continue to be put to the test under the extreme operating conditions faced by the New York City Sanitation Fleet.”

Designed and manufactured in North America, DuraFit DPFs are exact-fit OEM replacements that meet or exceed OEM emissions requirements and are backed by a two-year, unlimited mileage warranty.

DuraFit DPFs address a growing opportunity in the heavy duty aftermarket to replace original equipment DPF units.

According to a 2012 industry report, the market for medium and heavy duty vehicle after-treatment maintenance and repair, is projected to grow from US$500m in 2010 to US$3bn by 2017.
