Diesel Particulate Filter cleaning

Role of the particulate filter

A diesel particulate filter or DPF is an ” anti-pollution ” engine component located at the outlet of the vehicle’s exhaust manifold. It is fitted to both diesel and petrol vehicles. It is installed after the catalytic converter and before the silencer. It is equipped with a honeycomb filtration system that retains the fine particles resulting from the combustion of the air/fuel mixture. As these particles can be carcinogenic for humans and highly polluting for the environment, the DPF has a very important role to play in the fight against pollution.

How the particulate filter works ?

A particle filter operates in 2 stages. The first stage filters out particles, while the second removes them.

The primary function of the DPF is to filter and capture the fine particles present in the exhaust gases. This forms a layer of soot on the filter walls. Periodic regeneration is therefore necessary to regularly remove the soot.

DPF regenerations take place in automatic cycles during which the temperature of the exhaust gases is greatly increased in order to burn off the soot deposits.

Eventually, if the DPF has a malfunction or if the regenerations are not regular, this layer of soot clogs the particle filter, causes a reduction in engine performance and leads to clogging of the DPF.In this case, the DPF must be cleaned or replaced.

DPF cleaning

Replacing the particulate filter is a very costly operation. The part itself is expensive, and it also requires labor to disassemble and reassemble it.

DPF cleaning therefore remains a very interesting alternative to avoid its replacement.

Indeed, our DPF CLEANER machine is specially developed to carry out in-depth DPF cleaning without having to dismantle it.

It injects an exclusive, highly descaling product into the particulate filter, dissolving the soot and ash present there.

The cleaning operation takes place in 2 main stages, with a cleaning phase and a rinsing phase to eliminate residues once and for all.

The cleaning operation is carried out by connecting directly to the DPF differential pressure sensor and does not require any removal of the particle filter.

The intervention is usually completed within one hour, so the vehicle is not immobilized for too long.

If you have problems with your particulate filters, clogged DPF or lit DPF warning lights, don’t hesitate to contact us. Our technicians are at your disposal and will be able to solve your problems quickly.
