EEC Diesel Particulate Filters
What are they?
Before the advent of Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) soot particles were released into the atmosphere at the end of the combustion process causing health
and air quality problems. DPFs are being fitted after the catalytic converter to trap these particles. ever more stringent EU Emissions legislation is resulting
in more and more vehicles being fitted with DPFs.
How do they work?
Soot particles from diesel exhausts are trapped by a porous ceramic substrate inside the filter and collected on the walls. When the maximum 'Fill Level'
is reached one of several methods is employed to clear the filter of the collected particles. It is only necessary to replace the DPF when the process breaks
down and the filter becomes irreversibly clogged.
Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) eventually become clogged with impurities from the burnt oil and fuel used to lubricate and power the engine. This dose not necessarily mean the the components that make the DPF effective have broken down. EEC can take an existing DPF and put the product through an approved regeneration process that can effectively remove the impurities from most types of Diesel Particulate Filters. The customer recieves the DPF back in a condition that is close to that of when it was new at a fraction of the cost of buying a new DPF.
