All modern diesel engines feature a DPF (diesel particulate filter), which captures particles in your exhaust system. Through the DPF, soot and ash are stored inside the filter, then slowly removed through processes known as passive and active regeneration.
Sometimes, however, the DPF in a vehicle can fill up due to it not disposing of the particles properly, particularly if you have been consistently driving at slower speeds. When your DPF becomes full and won’t passively regenerate, the best option is to have it cleaned by a specialist.
Here at Bosch Car Service Milperra, we specialise in diagnosing DPF problems.
A full DPF can lead to engine troubles and significantly reduce the performance of your car and fuel economy.
When it comes to DPF cleaning, the typical methods have been to clear out the filter with extreme heat or to use pressure cleaning machines. In recent years, ultrasonic cleaning has become more common as a safer and more effective method to clean diesel particulate filters.
How Does Traditional DPF Cleaning Work?
Given that the DPF is designed to clean itself through heat, it seems logical that manual cleaning should simulate this method. Extreme heat DPF cleaning can involve temperatures of over one eight hundred degrees celsius. While this method generally succeeds in burning away soot, it can struggle to remove the ash that will have built up over years and can cause major damage to the substrate within the DPF.
In addition, traditional DPF cleaning can permanently damage the filter, meaning that you are unlikely to be able to go through the process multiple times. Instead, you will be paying for a brand new DPF. Thankfully, for all your DPF cleaning, DPf Regen at Milperra has a better option.
Why Choose Ultrasonic Cleaning?
In the past, many people have gotten various forms of DPF cleaning only to find that it has damaged their diesel particulate filter, resulting in the need to purchase a brand new one. One of the advantages of ultrasonic cleaning is that it does not damage components at all, meaning it can be performed repeatedly. Ultrasonic cleaning is also significantly cheaper than purchasing another DPF.
Bosch Car Service Milperra avoids DPF cleaning through incineration or pressure cleaning with a method that is also non-abrasive and non-caustic. Ultrasonic cleaning is a simple and quick process, leading to perfect diesel particulate filter cleaning.
