The DPF cleaning process. This involves spraying the DPF clean liquid directly onto the surface of the particle filter at high pressure. With our system being manually operated, this allows our skilled technicians to concentrate on those cells that require a deep and thorough clean. As a result, our customers get a filter that will far outlast the competition whose protocol is to automatically bake diesel particulate filters, and in turn can fracture the DPF unit itself. In some cases, your DPF will need removing from the vehicle, for processing in our state of the art DPF clean machine, this is at no extra charge.
The DPF flushing process. This uses a DPF flushing liquid, which again is run at a high pressure. The particulate deposits are dissolved during the cleaning process and distributed around the diesel particle filter, these will be flushed out of the system during this part of the procedure, any remaining deposits will then be burnt off as part of a regeneration in the next step.
Final Diagnostics & DPF Load Check. We will carry out a regeneration according to the manufacturers' instruction.
Once complete the final diagnostics is carried out and a confirmation of the new load in the DPF system will be printed. All DPF related fault lights will be OFF, and a test drive of the vehicle will be carried out, to ensure it is operating correctly. This procedure usually takes 2-3hours.
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. As the filter accumulates more soot particles and comes to the point of a blockage, warning lights will appear and a loss in power will be felt. Common warning lights are the engine management light, glow plug light & the DPF symbol itself. If left and continuously driven, this will cause damage to other parts i.e. EGR Valve, Exhaust Sensors, Turbo Seals, the list goes on.. This can be very expensive indeed!
