What is a retrofit solution?
A retrofit solution describes the measures taken to allow new or updated parts to be fitted to old or outdated systems. It is necessary when the design of a large assembly is changed or revised due to upgrades, product development or legislation. If a customer with an old version of the product needs to purchase an updated part, then retrofit parts and assembling techniques are required in order to ensure it fits and operates correctly.
In the case of diesel vehicles, new legislation and rules have come into effect which require vehicles to be more energy efficient and to release less harmful gases into the environment. Many cities are introducing Clean Air Zones (CAZ) or Low Emission Zones (LEZ) which issue daily charges to vehicles who are not compliant.
“We create new, bold solutions. Because everyone has the right to breathe clean air.” – Proventia NOxBUSTER® City
How to upgrade to Euro VI
Excalibre Technologies can retrofit diesel vehicles for fleets or individuals with the Proventia NOxBUSTER® City DPF + SCR systems. It enables diesel vehicles (such as buses, coaches, refuse collection vehicles and trucks) to be upgraded to the Euro VI emission level.
Proventia are the leading developer and manufacturer of retrofit and OE emission control systems. Their systems have full TfL and CVRAS approval ensuring compliance with the UK’s “Ultra Low Emission Zone” (ULEZ) and “Clean Air Zones”. We have installed over 1,000 systems across major bus operators. The system is designed to fit each vehicle without structural modification.
Reducing city driving NOX
Combined with advanced catalyst technology and optimised thermal management, the NOxBUSTER® system achieves impressive and necessary emission reduction rates in city traffic, without additional devices or components. The retrofit solution provides real-time, 24/7 online information about NOx emissions and EAT system purification performance.

About Excalibre Technologies
Founded in 2007 (a year before the introduction of LEZ), Excalibre Technologies was born with the intention of offering high quality commercial vehicle emission control products and services at a competitive price with customer service at the heart of our operation. Since then Excalibre has grown to become a leading supplier of retrofit solutions and DPF cleaning services in the UK.
We work with several national organisations to help achieve their ecological targets of lowering emissions and ensuring their vehicles are maintained to a high standard using internationally recognised practises and equipment supported by OEMs. We can also supply most aftermarket silencers and catalytic converters.
