DPF Filter Regeneration
DPF Regeneration Services in Sheffield
Here at DPF Solutions, we provide a comprehensive DPF filter regeneration service. This process clears the excess soot and diesel particulate matter that has gathered within your filter mesh and is unable to be cleared naturally. Under specific conditions, engines can burn away the excess matter, but this requires long sessions of driving at a constantly high speed, which is not always possible for drivers.
If your driving habits do not allow this method of natural DPF regeneration, the deposits of diesel particulate matter will continue to grow and block the filter. This will in turn make the quality of your driving experience suffer, with a less smooth engine function and a decrease in fuel economy. If this is allowed to continue, the state of your filter will deteriorate and the DPF warning light will appear on your dashboard. Driving with a blocked DPF will cause the filter to fail, which will be disastrous for your engine. The DPF will then need to be replaced.
How DPF Regeneration Works
Our DPF regeneration service is a simple and easy procedure, simply using our top-of-the-range Bosch diagnostic equipment to instruct your engine control unit (ECU) to initiate a manual regeneration of your DPF filter. Your ECU will then perform a post-TDC injection of diesel into the engine, raising the combustion temperature and recreating the environment in which the diesel matter will be burnt away, bringing your filter back to life. After the regeneration is completed, you will find that your engine power and drive quality will feel almost like new, your emissions will be lower and your fuel economy will increase. This service is completed static at our garage in Sheffield, and is faster and cheaper than a chemical clean.
Our DPF regeneration services come included in our standard servicing packages, so you can ensure that a car service with DPF Solutions will ensure your diesel particulate filter comes away healthy. Regular services and regeneration is essential to ensure that your engine remains in full working order. Although it may be tempting to attempt a DPF regeneration process yourself, or resort to fuel additive cleaning products, a regeneration procedure performed by professionals will give a much higher quality of result.
