When it comes to the MOT of a vehicle, its content of the emissions matters a lot. One such content is the particulate matter present in the diesel based engine’s exhaust. Diesel cars come fitted with Diesel Particulate Filters or DPF that ensures a reduction in the overall emission of these particulate matters. Over time the filter gets clogged and needs regeneration for a clear exhaust of the gases. At BR Car Care Centre, we make sure that the filter is ready to work again well within the regulations set by the government of the UK. Our technicians carry out necessary DPF regeneration Birmingham in the most expert way.
What is DPF regeneration?
As mentioned, the dirt and soot particles generated in the engine while burning diesel clogs the filter of a vehicle that runs on diesel. In such cases, a regeneration becomes inevitable. The regeneration process involves the cleaning of the particulate matter off the filters.
It is a mandatory service to ensure a pass certificate for the MOT test.
What are the methods of DPF regeneration?
Unlike catalytic converter service, DPF regeneration needs proper maintenance of pressure. The cleaning of the filters can be done in the following two ways.
Active Regeneration: As the name suggests, active regeneration involves the usage of active agents of cleaning. The particulate matter is burned with the help of heat. It is a quick process and takes only 10 to 15 minutes to perform on a standing vehicle. The only drawback of active regeneration is its unsuitability when the pressure build-up is too high.
Forced Regeneration: Forced regeneration is carried out by manually running a car under the influence of a computer. This technique is best for regenerating a filter when the pressure is too strong for active regeneration.
DPF regeneration becomes essential as prolonged usage of a car with clogged DPF will result in engine malfunctions. It will also corrupt the fuel and the engine oil as well. Therefore, our experts, at BR Car Care Centre, recommend the motorists to get their DPF regeneration Birmingham done regularly. The technicians at our garage will make use of highly advanced and sophisticated technology to deliver quality service each time you visit our garage.
