So how do DPF’s work?
Diesel Particulate filters (DPF) or ‘traps’ do just that, they catch bits of soot in the exhaust. As with any filter they have to be emptied regularly to maintain performance. For a DPF this process is called ‘regeneration’ – the collected soot is burnt off at high temperature to leave only a tiny ash residue.
Why does my Diesel Particulate Filter get blocked?
Every vehicle type & engine combination can have differing reasons as to why the diesel particulate filter blocks. The rate of particulates generated by the engine, the quality of the fuel, quality of the or oil, driving style, even the location of the DPF in the exhaust system can all contribute to the filter blocking or not regenerating fully.
Different Regeneration Cycle Types
- Active regeneration – Take about 10 Minutes on average
- Passive regeneration – Takes place while driving using the heat of the exhaust temperature. This works really well with trucks that drive longer distances with few stops compared to trucks that perform short trips with many starts and stops. Regeneration cycles start and can’t finish and this will become a catalyst for a trip to the mechanic shop.
- Forced Regenerations – This involves the garage using a computer program to run the car, initiating a regeneration of the DPF.
Now you know about the three main regeneration cycle types that a DPF can go through. Besides the passive regeneration cycle, these regeneration cycles take time and they can cost you money… Because in trucking, time = money.
What if your DPF didn’t have to go through a regeneration cycle as often? Well this is only possibly if your diesel particulate filters DON’T HAVE TO regenerate. (Or at least as often)
So what is the solution?
The DPF would have to accumulate less soot, then the regen cycles wouldn’t be necessary as often; which results to more time driving… Which means more money.
I would like to invite you to try our solution. DPF Remedy is a tablet and by simply dropping it into your fuel tank, you will start to address your DPF problems.
Here’s how DPF Remedy works:
DPF Remedy is an organic diesel fuel catalyst that prevents the soot/particulates from forming and reaching your DPF in the first place!
Reduce your Diesel Particulate Filter Regeneration events (DPF Regens) by up to 800% while increasing performance and horsepower 3 to 5% and reducing fuel consumption up to 20%!
How To Use DPF Remedy
Our proprietary “Quick Dissolve” process makes treating your vehicle as easy as filling your tank.
No mixing, no measuring, just drop the proper number of DPF Remedy tablets into your fuel tank every time you fuel. (DPF Remedy comes in either 50 or 10 gallon tablets)
By the time you’re done fueling, the formula has mixed with your fuel to ensure perfect combustion starting with your first tank.
While you will notice the DPF benefits immediately, it may take 3-5 tanks for you to notice a large increase in fuel mileage.
Your fuel savings will more than pay for DPF Remedy. Increased performance, easier starts, better acceleration and a smoother running engine will be noticeable every time you get behind the wheel.
It’s well known that fuel consumption increases during the winter months, partly because composition changes by refiners to winter fuel to make it more volatile and burn properly in cold weather conditions. Diesel consumers also notice lower mileage in the winter....
Hey Guys, Kevin here with DPF Remedy. We have been seeing a lot of comments online. We are getting a lot of online messages, telephone calls, just a lot of skepticism out of the marketplace. And we don't blame you. We have had 30 years and hundreds of bad additives...
So what's the answer? We wish there was a specific answer to this question, but there's not. Every engine & DPF is a little different and how often they go through regeneration cycles is the same. Let's also not forget that there are different types of...
