28 Sep DPF Cleaning, Reconditioning or New
To remove harmful soot or diesel particulate matter from the exhaust of a diesel engine it requires a device called the diesel particulate filter (DPF).
These diesel particulate devices are able to remove between 85% to 100% of more of the carbon build up in your exhaust. There are different types of Diesel Particulate Filters used in different vehicles.
Some filters are disposable and require replacement, when they are full. Some filters burn off the particulate or soot, which is known as filter regeneration. It often takes higher speeds than 70km/h for the DPF to regenerate properly. Some city vehicles might not reach these speeds causing DPF issues.
Diesel fuel injection or turbo charger failure or poor fuel quality may also cause your DPF to contaminate.
Cleaning a DPF filter is necessary as part of proper diesel maintenance and should be done by an expert to avoid damages to the filter.
Why is a diesel particulate filter important?
Apart from making a diesel cleaner and compliant, the diesel particulate filter impact on your vehicles performance. If your DPF blocks up, your engine is at risk to fail. And engine failures are very expensive to fix.
So if the warning light in your vehicle comes on – it’s time to call an expert to have it checked out. Ignoring the DPF light will not only impact your vehicle performance and fuel economy, but also damage your engine.
