The diesel particulate filter (DPF), also known as just particle filter, has the job of filtering health-endangering particles out of the exhaust system. In addition, the particle filter burns the soot that has collected on the filter pockets. This soot burn-off, otherwise known as regeneration, depends on the operating conditions of the vehicle, the different driving cycles and the individual engine exhaust concept of the car manufacturer. In order to comply with emissions standards, the diesel particulate filter (DPF) – as the name suggests – is used on vehicles with a diesel engine.

The Cost-Effective Alternative to Replacing the Particulate Filter

If the DPF is clogged with particles, it can quickly become very expensive: Customers have to dig deep into their pockets to replace a diesel particulate filter.. A new diesel DPF can costs between £1,000 and £6,000.

Symptoms and Problems

An increased loaded of the DPF without regular regeneration leads to a blockage of the component and the results are:

  • Loss of engine power (Limp home mode)
  • Increased fuel consumption
  • Warning lights on Dash board
  • MOT Failure

Application and effect

Instead of replacing the DPF, in most cases, It can be cleaned whilst still installed to the vehicle. Proving to be even more cost effected by cutting down on expensive removal and installation costs.

The cleaning fluid dissolves the deposits on the DPF and the neutralizing solution ensures the complete removal of particles.

Results of DPF Cleaning

The use of the cleaning fluid and rinsing solution enables:

  • A subsequent regeneration in which the soot deposits are burned to CO₂.
  • There is no additional impact on the environment
  • The particle filter is fully functional again after cleaning.
