DPF Cleaning

DPF Cleaning is a way of removing soot from your car’s DPF. A DPF is a component specific to a diesel engine since they burn fuel differently from petrol cars. A large amount of soot is created as a byproduct of the combustion process.

DPF Cleaning works by raising the temperature of the exhaust gasses, burning out most of the built-up soot in the car’s DPF. By doing this, the technician is then able to carry out the rest of the process without removing the DPF. If your car has a more severe DPF blockage, the DPF would need to be removed and cleaned.

DPF Explained

A DPF is a filter that’s fitted onto the car’s exhaust to catch the soot particles being emitted from the car’s engine. This type of filter is only used on diesel engines, never on an engine running off petrol.

DPF stands for Diesel Particulate Filter and when there’s a build-up of excess soot, the engine of your diesel vehicle won’t work properly. It’ll cost you an excess amount in fuel consumption and emit harmful exhaust emissions.

This cleaning process uses different types of regeneration, such as active regeneration for example. It’s a term used for cleaning the soot out of the car’s DPF. The regeneration process can be done both on and off the car depending on how bad the soot build-up is.
