Diesel Particulate Filter Regeneration
Diesel Particulate Filter Regeneration in Downend, Bristol by Westerleigh Car Centre
To improve efficiency and to reduce exhaust gas emissions from modern diesel engines manufacturers are now fitting Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) to these engines. The DPF is fitted in the vehicle’s exhaust system, and it is designed to prevent harmful pollutants from leaking into our atmosphere, but as with all filters they need to be cleaned from time to time to prevent them from blocking.
Under certain driving conditions, the DPF will actually regenerate automatically; this normally takes place at motorway speeds and problems can arise in vehicles that are only used for urban driving and rarely have the chance to reach the sustained speeds required for effective cleaning of the DPF. If the filter is not cleaned, it will eventually clog up, causing problems with the efficiency of the vehicle.
At our workshop in Downend, Bristol, we use the highly reputed Fortron Diesel Particulate Filter Treatment (DPF) which reduces the size of the soot particles produced during combustion and lowers the temperature at which the soot is burned off during the regeneration (cleaning) process. It treats the problem of a dirty DPF and also works as a preventative maintenance tool.
