DPF Removal In Cumbria

DPF, also known as Diesel Particulate Filter

DPF, also known as Diesel Particulate Filter or FAP filtre à particules in France is a particle filter which reduces the amount of pollution emitted by diesel vehicles. DPF pipes do this by filtering the solid particles which is found in the exhaust gas.

Over time, the particle filter in diesel cars becomes clogged by an accumulation of different components. These components can come from exhaust soot, cinders from the engine oil and particles from general engine wear and tear. A regeneration of the filter is needed when the filter becomes clogged. A vehicle regenerates periodically by burning off the particles which are accumulated in the particle filter.

Regeneration of the particle filter

Regeneration of the particle filter can occur in a number of ways for example it can occur naturally if the temperature of the exhaust is sufficient. Regeneration is also instigated by the injection of ECU this happens if the temperature is sufficient but the filter is clogged. Finally some vehicle models can inject more fuel during the regeneration process in order to lower the temperature.

On occasion the filter in a diesel car cannot regenerate on its own. If this is the case then a forced regeneration is required via a dealer level diagnostic tool. If a filter is to heavily loaded a replacement filter must be fitted if not temperatures can get very high and could cause a fire.

So to see if DPF removal can help with your particle filter and reduce your vehicle emissions the just get in touch.
