What is a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter)
In simple terms a DPF also known as a Diesel Particulate Filter is basically a trap that is fitted in the exhaust system. Usually a few pipes and probes connected measuring pressure differential and temperature.
Most modern day diesel’s have them fitted, this is one of the reasons why you don’t see black smoke poring out of the exhaust like you used to see a few years back around town.
The plan is to work as a trap catching all the black soot produced whilst driving around town then get rid of it on long journeys. This is all well and good but whats so environmentally friendly about dumping a whole load of built up soot all at once? ‘We have yet to find out’
Often you will see driving down the motorway, what appears to be a car with a blown engine or black smoking like a train. Most likely the vehicle will be going through a regeneration process clearing out all the built up soot. Sometimes you may end up with a DPF blocked, this is often because the regeneration process (Cleaning Process) has not completed properly. In this event you may want to have the DPF removed in which case you are in touch with the right people for the job.
