Advantages and of Disadvantages of Diesel filter (DPF - Diesel Particulate Filter)
Why diesel particulates filter?
A external links for paying members only is only applied to the diesel engines. The aims of the exhaust gases are to pass through, and the soot particles to absorb. This is obviously good for the environment but will definitely drawbacks to the engine.
What is the process of the DPF?
Soot particles are temporarily stored in the filter. Average 600 km regeneration occurs because the filter is saturated. During the regeneration of the soot particles are burnt at a high temperature. To do this, the temperature is temporarily increased to 550 ° C. In order to reach this temperature, there must be a substantial amount of diesel fuel in the diesel particulate filter to be sprayed. You can imagine that this has a negative impact on fuel consumption. Regeneration is the destruction of stockpiled soot particles at extremely high temperatures. Usually takes regeneration automatically during a long trip on the highway.
Disadvantages of the particle filter:
The problem with short distances is twofold:
The engine is almost impossible for operating temperature, making the combustion of fuel is not optimal and the emission of particles increases. This will cause the particle filter quickly saturate.
Because the operating temperature is not reached, the particle filter in the exhaust sits too low a temperature to achieve the regeneration to boot. The result is that the particle filter is clogged, causing the engine power will decrease, the computer generates an error and gives the car to a garage for repair. The garage is a forced regeneration of the DPF empty. Repeatedly or late intervention may cause damage to the filter. The lifetime of the particle filter is thus shortened.
Maintenance costs and increase the life of the particle filter can be shortened by the unilateral use of a modern diesel car by short journeys.
What can ATM-Chiptuning for you?
In practice, the particulate filters with many customers fail or not want to regenerate. The dealer is the only solution, replace the particulate filter. These costs are often between the 1500, and 2000.
ATM has the knowledge and quality of the particulate filter to get emptied and software off. This means you no longer suffer from interference and or a clogged filter.
Note: When the particle filter is emptied or removed, it should also software to be written. If this is not done, the engine in the emergency program store.
Need a car at the MOT (soot measurement) to have a soot filter. A modern diesel remains without filter under the allowable emissions.
The advantages of the removal of the particulate filter:
- Lower the maintenance. (No failures and or replacement of the particulate filter more)
- Lower the fuel consumption. 1 to 2 L at 100km!
- More power because the turbo earlier pressure can build and less back pressure gives. (Can be up to 30Nm)
- Longer service life of the engine and turbo.
The particle filters off and removes:
- No error messages
- No fault codes
- No more regeneration
- Extended service intervals, no more oil dilution by excessive regeneration
- More power
- Lower fuel consumption
Diesel filter are good for the environment, let there be no misunderstanding arise. However, there are a lot of manufacturers who lack adequate attention to the further development of particle filters. They are too often broken by a malfunctioning system. A new filter is the only solution and the recurrence rate is very high.
external links for paying members only provides Diesel filter, external links for paying members only and external links for paying members only kits. For most of the brands, Gapbigrigpower has developed software that we have the performance of the filter can switch off completely. external links for paying members only information or prices please contact us.
