The absence of global protocols to limit particulate matter (PM) emissions is prompting countries to draft local regulations. In the U.S., the Clean Air Act mandates the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) set national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for six PM criteria. These PM-driven regulations are increasing the adoption of diesel particulate filters (DPF) in stationary and mobile diesel engines.
However, most DPFs fail to deliver the desired PM filtration. They lose integrity in real-world operations where exhaust temperatures at the inlet are difficult to manage due to varying environmental conditions.
Known for developing self-generating, sustainable, and active DPF solutions that conform to global PM emission standards, Rypos is a verified diesel emission control provider assisting businesses in boosting their filtration capabilities. Rypos has considerable experience in power generation, including data centers, healthcare facilities, universities, government, transport refrigeration, and port equipment, including commercial harbor craft vessels and rubber-tire gantry cranes.

“Rypos holds extensive knowledge of diesel PM technology and leverages this knowledge to design advanced and flexible DPF solutions that help companies comply with air quality regulations,” says Paul Anderson, CEO of Rypos.
A Quantum Leap Forward in DPF Technology
Passive DPF filters trap soot, which can hinder the reduction of inlet temperature during an engine’s thermal regeneration process. Over multiple regeneration cycles, the soot heats up to very high temperatures, eventually melting the DPF filter.
Placing passive filters away from the generator can also be problematic. Specifically, passive filters need the heat of combustion to regenerate, and if they are too far from the source, the exhaust cools by the time it gets to the filter, preventing the DPF from regenerating.
In cases of intermittent demand, a passive filter may not be as effective. A generator constantly runs and heats up, enabling the filter to run quite efficiently. However, standby generators used in data centers or in mission-critical infrastructure like hospitals do not run for more than 15 minutes at a time.
The system will never get hot enough to properly regenerate the passive filters, resulting in clogging and plugging and ultimately, hindering their performance at times of power outage.
Rypos’ ADPF bypasses this with an automated electrical regeneration to monitor filter back pressure and temperature. ADPFs are heated at 700°C to incinerate the trapped soot containing toxic contaminants, enhancing filtration integrity while maintaining a low back temperature that maximizes engine performance. Today, Rypos’ filters are proven to consume less energy, reduce lifecycle operating costs, and accomplish up to 95 percent diesel PM removal.
Better Innovation for More Optimal Results
Rypos technology is more than just a filter. Its DPF system can be adjusted to specific regeneration cycles based on the required operating parameters, reducing undue back pressure that would impact engine operation while optimizing the particular matter removal.
The system regenerates electrically, unlike the passive filters that need to burn excess fuel to regenerate. This is particularly useful for varied marine applications, like a harbor craft, which must idle for 20 minutes, run flat out and then idle for another 20 or 40 minutes as people disembark.

“Our system can adapt in real-time to the operating parameters, ensuring that it does not negatively impact the way the engine operates. Rypos ensures that the engine does not consume excess fuel, to run the filter optimally,” says Anderson.
This is in contrast with passive filters, where without sufficient heat, the system has to burn extra carbon to remove carbon, that is, burn more diesel fuel to burn off or regenerate the filter, capturing the PM. Not only does this increase the cost associated with fuel consumption, but the cost of environmental impact. Rypos systems are the solution.
The increasing awareness of air quality regulations and ESG initiatives further drives demand for those solutions.
The company consistently inspects its production unit for compliance with current regulations before they green-light the release and installation of each product. In-house manufacturing capabilities enable Rypos to offer extended warranty and servicing programs with quick response rates for rebuilding products and boosting their validity.
In the stationary and transport refrigeration segment, Rypos has a proven track record of always complying with the latest regulatory requirements and helping clients meet their product deadlines. Rypos’ ultra low emissions DPF (ULETRU) is a self-cleaning filter using the transport refrigeration unit’s (TRU) electrical power to regenerate itself as needed. It delivers a PM emission rate of 0.2 g/bhp-hr or less for Tier 1-, Tier 2-, or Tier 3-certified diesel engines. Rypos also welcomes clients looking to be DPF suppliers and trains their technical staff to troubleshoot the DPF application.
Carving the Journey Ahead with Experience and Ingenuity
A customer-oriented company, Rypos continuously develops product variations that align with client feedback to maintain its unmatched level of service. By clearly understanding diesel engine filtration requirements, Rypos’ highly competent team skillfully implements DPF solutions that adapt to a client’s installation requirements. It has cultivated the skills to provide exceptional field support and elicit customer praise for its lowmaintenance products.
It is no wonder that Rypos’ stellar team has helped propel it to 25 years in business.
Currently, Rypos is producing solutions to address the evolving regulations and sustainability goals of California companies and beyond. With the California state government poised to levy new emission rules on harbor crafts, Rypos is developing products capable of ensuring continual compliance with the emerging regulations to help businesses create sustainable products built for a greener future.
They are also actively working to meet the needs of the standby power field, where generators are continuously getting larger. Rypos is working to scale its offerings accordingly, increasing its manufacturing footprint to support the growth in the industry, especially in the data center market.
By combining superior products with its vast support network, Rypos creates a sense of reliability that is rare in the current hyper-competitive industry.
