Are you experiencing a delayed throttle response, black smoke from the exhaust when you accelerate, or perhaps poor fuel economy? It sounds like your vehicle could benefit from DPF cleaning to be carried out by your local DPF specialist, Engine Carbon Detox. The diesel particulate filters within your diesel car must be maintained to get the most out of your vehicle. Failure to look after the DPF can cause extensive problems with the emission levels of your car. By investing in DPF filter cleaning, you’re taking a proactive step towards prolonging the life of your vehicle, whilst being a responsible owner.
Why Invest in DPF Filter Cleaning?
Diesel particulate filters act to trap and store the soot that is expelled from your exhaust. The aim of doing so is to reduce the overall volume of carbon emissions from diesel vehicles. Over time, the amount of trapped soot builds up which can cause problems for the efficiency of your vehicle. You might see plumes of black smoke coming out of your exhaust, especially when you’re accelerating. When your diesel particulate filter is full, it will need to be regenerated or cleaned.
The Mobile DPF Cleaning Process
The professional mobile DPF cleaning service delivered by Engine Carbon Detox restores your diesel particulate filter back to its original condition. This strategy is proven to be 100% successful at removing DPF blockages. We guarantee that our service will remove the entire volume of soot from your filter, taking it down to a rock bottom 0g.
We use a hydrogen cell unit which offers ease of installation. The benefit of the unit is that it boosts the consumption of fuel in excess of 99% and will last for up to 8,000 miles between services. Vehicle owners must commit to going for regular motorway runs to assist in DPF regeneration. Without taking this step, the blockage within your diesel particulate filter will slowly build up again.
Passive and Active Regeneration
When you allow your car to run on motorways, this forces the exhaust temperature to increase, thereby burning off the excess soot in your diesel particulate filter in a process known as passive regeneration. Regular journeys at 60-70mph for more than 30 minutes at a time, help to maintain the filter. However, many vehicle owners don’t drive in this manner. Those who require their diesel cars for shorter, slower journeys around town will notice a build-up of soot.
Where passive regeneration isn’t possible, your diesel vehicle will instead switch to active regeneration. This process relies on the use of additional fuel when your DPF reaches almost half of its limit. Active regeneration forces the temperature of the exhaust to raise, thus burning off the trapped soot within the filter. Active regeneration suffers from problems if the journey time is too brief and the regeneration cycle does not fully complete. In this case, you may notice signs such as an odour emitted from the exhaust, an increase in fuel consumption, a warning light on your dashboard or cooling fans running. You may also experience the deactivation of your automatic Stop/Start feature.
