DOCs, short for Diesel Oxidation Catalysts, are exhaust aftertreatment devices that can effectively reduce emissions from diesel-fueled vehicles and equipment. Due to their simplicity and low maintenance requirements, engine manufacturers have used DOCs in various in-use applications for many years. Additionally, they are commonly employed as a retrofit technology.
The typical design of a DOC consists of a flow-through honeycomb structure that is coated with precious metal, such
as platinum or palladium, and contained in a stainless steel housing. As hot diesel exhaust passes through the honeycomb structure, the precious metal coating initiates a catalytic reaction that breaks down pollutants into less harmful components. This process helps to reduce the amount of harmful emissions that are released into the environment.
