A Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is designed to reduce the soot emissions from your vehicles exhaust by up to 80%. DPFs were introduced following the ‘Euro 5’ standards coming into force and are required to be in good order for your MOT.
A DPF works by trapping bits of soot in the exhaust. The DPF is structured like a series of honeycomb filters that stop the soot passing all the way through the filter therefore reducing emissions.
DPF blockages are common in this fairly new technology, especially when your vehicle is used to travel frequent short distances. A DPF effectively self cleans in a process called ‘regeneration’ where the soot is burnt off the filter at high temperature usually when the vehicle is travelling consistently at moderate to high rpm. However, if the DPF builds up too much soot it will drastically reduce the performance of the vehicle and could require a manual clean.
Our DPF cleaning service, using state of the art technology, provides a fast and cost effective solution. This regeneration process achieves 98% of the original new condition with certified results.
Using our DPF cleaning service can generate significant savings, removing the need to undertake costly on-going repair bills or buy expensive new filters.
