The diesel particulate filter (DPF) is actually used to filter the particles generated during the combustion of diesel. This is not entirely free of residues. Ash builds up in the filter and leads to an increase in the exhaust gas pressure of the filter and thus also the fuel consumption. Regenerating journeys are necessary, clogged filters have to be regenerated in the workshop, the vehicle only runs in an emergency program.
In most cases, a diesel particulate filter is replaced. If a forced regeneration of your workshop is no longer possible, we adjust the loading condition of the filter for you and a new regeneration can be started again.
Diesel particle filters are not expanded, but are replaced, if necessary, by more powerful ones.
