Luber-Finer Adds Training Module to Highlight Importance of Urea/DEF Filtration

Luber-Finer Adds New Training Module

This latest online training module explains how Urea/DEF filters support emission reduction and improve performance.

Luber-finer, a leading brand in heavy-duty filtration since 1936, has added its ninth module to Luber-finer University, the filter company’s free online education program for distributors, point-of-sale associates, and others who work in the heavy-duty industry. Accessible from any internet-connected device, Module 9 covers how Urea/Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) filters function in concert with exhaust aftertreatment systems to reduce vehicle emissions in compliance with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requirements. It also explains why those involved in heavy-duty vehicle maintenance should pay closer attention to recommended change intervals.  

“In some circles, the misconception still exists that these filters do not need to be replaced,” said Jonathan Engels, senior director of sales, commercial vehicle for Luber-finer. “This module dispels that myth by highlighting all of the ways a clogged Urea/DEF filter can potentially cause problems for heavy-duty operators.” 

In addition to highlighting the problems of a clogged filter, Module 9 examines selective-catalytic reduction (SCR) technology, what can happen if DEF can’t reach a vehicle’s exhaust aftertreatment system, and the vehicle coverage Luber-finer’s line of Urea/DEF filters provide.
