BEST particulate filters PART DEALS MINIMUM EFFORT!

particulate filters


Since 2009, it's been a legal requirement for diesel cars to have particulate filters fitted to help prevent soot produced by the engine from being passed into the atmosphere. Here we will explain more about particulate filters.

Purpose for having particulate filters fitted

The main purpose for having particulate filters fitted to diesel vehicles is to reduce air pollution. They are required by law for all modern diesel engines as they help reduce emissions and bring down air pollution. The filters do this by catching small pieces of soot that are released by the burned diesel fuel. Once the filter is filled then the soot needs to be burned away with one of two processes. The first is passive regeneration where the exhaust temperatures are high enough to burn the soot or active regeneration, which is a process initiated by the vehicle to burn soot. While diesel particulate filters have been an effective way of reducing vehicle pollution, they are liable to become defective and wear out over time. Also, diesel vehicles produced before 2009 may still be required to have filters fitted so they are able to go on the road legally.

Important that diesel particulate filters are maintained

It's important that diesel particulate filters are maintained effectively because failing to do so, or tampering with the filter, could have serious consequences for your vehicle. Some may refer to these filters as soot traps. One of the tell-tale signs there might be an issue is if black smoke is emitted by the exhaust, usually when accelerating quickly. Some vehicle owners may be tempted to remove their diesel particulate filter but this will mean breaking the law and by doing so you will face a hefty financial fine, which is larger for those who remove them from vans. You will also invalidate your vehicle's insurance policy. But how do you know when your diesel particulate filter has become blocked? In most modern vehicles, a light will be illuminated on the dashboard to indicate that the filter is either clogged with soot or the system has developed a fault. The light usually appears as a piped box containing dots though they do vary between manufacturers.

Reasons why diesel particulate filters become clogged

One of the reasons why diesel particulate filters become clogged is if you do a lot of short journeys at low speeds. There may also be issues with poor servicing and the type of engine oil used as some may contain additives that will block the filter. Many diesel car manufacturers will recommend that the vehicle is taken on a longer journey at higher speeds to help the filter become unblocked. For those who carry out modifications for performance reasons on a diesel vehicle, then they may also cause filter issues and running their vehicle on low fuel levels may also damage the filter.
