About Diesel Particulate Filters & Vehicle Filter Systems
Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF), sometimes referred to as soot traps, are becoming more common today due to ongoing changes in emissions regulations. With Euro 5 standards now with us, Particulate Filters in diesel vehicle exhausts are now as common as catalytic converters on petrol cars.
This relatively new way to combat vehicle pollution has proven to be very successful in providing major reductions to diesel exhaust emissions but, as with any new technology, sometimes there can be problems. Evidence of these systems failing to regenerate comes to light every day. In the UK, the AA is getting more & more calls from drivers with DPF warning lights indicating a filter blockage, and not knowing what it is or what to do about it.
In order to regenerate properly the DPF must reach a high temperature, something which only happens during extended driving cycles. Diesel powered vehicles used in urban or stop/start driving environments are unlikely to reach the required operating temperatures to regenerate and clean the DPF. As a result the DPF becomes clogged and eventually the vehicle will go into ‘limp’ mode. At this point the filter must be cleaned before permanent damage occurs. This is where the DPF Cleaning Kit from JLM comes in.
New MOT rules now prohibit the removal of the DPF (a bodge to try to bypass the original problem). Any vehicle originally fitted with a DPF must have this in place, and working, in order to pass the MOT.
The JLM DPF Cleaning Kit includes:
- DPF Cleaning Fluid (500ml)
- DPF Flush Fluid (1500ml)
The JLM DPF Cleaning Toolkit includes:
- Spray Gun
- Sprayer Tank (with special coating)
- Transparent Hose
- 2 x Conical Nozzle
- DPF Probe (optional extra)
The process involves thoroughly cleaning the filter with the stage 1 cleaning fluid followed by flushing out all the residue with the stage 2 flush fluid. Everything needed to complete the work is included in the JLM Cleaning Toolkit but the optional DPF Probe can also be used to aid the process depending on the type of DPF being cleaned.
Note: This kit is for professional use only
