the cost of
ash from oil
DPFs effectively reduce emissions of particulate matter by collecting
and storing incombustible particles in the form of ash and soot.
However, most of the ash that collects in the DPF comes from
consumed lubricant. Even today’s lowest-ash oils clog DPFs, often
resulting in greater backpressure, more frequent forced
regenerations and increased fuel consumption.

Today’s 1% low-ash oils aren’t low enough
Oil specifications have changed over time to keep up with lower-emissions demands but
have not specifically addressed improving the performance of aftertreatment systems. The
percentage of ash-forming metallic additives in oils was limited to a maximum of 1% with the
introduction of API CJ-4 specs in 2006, and this maximum has remained at 1% under the API
CK-4 standard, introduced in 2016. Unfortunately, it’s still not low enough to maximize
the lifespan of the DPF, meaning the technological advancement of aftertreatment systems
has outpaced today’s lubricants. Until now.
