A Diesel Particulate Filter is a device fitted to most modern diesel engine cars and vans that is deisgned to remove diesel
particulate matter, or soot, from the exhaust gas emitted by the vehicle. Some DPFs are designed to be used only once,
needing replacement when they are full. Other Diesel Particulate Filters are designed to burn off the gathered particulates
with the use of a catalyst or byrunning an in-built engine program, when required, that injects extra fuel into the
combustion process thus causing the exhaust temperature to increase and reach a level that incinerates the trapped soot
in the filter
If the DPF is beginning to block, and not performing to its required level, the performance of the vehicle begins to suffer. As
exhaust pressure builds the engine will attempt to work harder, fighting against the restricted flow, resulting in lower fuel
efficiency, loss of engine power and eventually complete engine failure. A block will be indicated on the dashboard of your
vehicle by a warning light, and perhaps even an "Air Pollution System" warning in some vehicles.
What are the benefits of Diesel Particulate Filter cleaning?
Cleaning your blocked DPF will extend the life of your filter, maintain engine power, restore fuel economy and help to
safeguard the environment.
Pro-Line cleaner for diesel particle filters is a highly effective agent for the cleaning of installed diesel particle filters on motor
vehicles. Contamination in the diesel particle filter is dissolved quickly, making the previously required, cost-intensive
What are the benefits of Diesel Particulate Filter removal?
With the DPF removed from your vehicle, not only are you eliminating the possibility of the filter becoming blocked
resulting in a potentially hefty replacement cost, but you will experience greater fuel economy along with better
engine performance from your vehicle. This is because the build up of exhaust pressure on your engine is reduced
and allows the engine to work under less strain, requiring less power and fuel.
Diesel Particulate Filter Removal Service
We offer a Diesel Particulate Filter removal service at a very competitive price as an alternative to replacing the
blocked or malfunctioning DPF on your diesel car or van. When we remove the DPF we will also need to remap the
ECU to ensure that the engine is aware it no longer has a Diesel Particulate Filter attached. Instead of a simple
engine remap you will also have the opportunity for us to do a more advanced re-configuration of the ECU, free of
charge, to further improve the fuel economy or perhaps boost the engine performance beyond just the benefits of
the DPF removal itself.
