A Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is a device designed to remove soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine. Soot is a by-product of combustion and is made up of tiny particles of carbon. A DPF captures these particles and prevents them from being released into the atmosphere.
DPFs are required on all new diesel engines in the European Union and the United States. They are also becoming increasingly common in other markets, such as Australia and China.
There are two main types of DPF:
1. Passive DPFs: These rely on the engine’s exhaust gas flow to push the soot through the filter.
2. Active DPFs: These use an electric motor to create a suction effect that pulls the soot through the filter.
Most DPFs are made from a ceramic or metal honeycomb structure. The soot is trapped in the tiny pores of the honeycomb and cannot escape.
Over time, the soot will build up and block the pores of the DPF. This will eventually reduce the flow of exhaust gas and cause the engine to lose power. The DPF will need to be cleaned or replaced when this happens.
Cleaning a DPF can be done by burning off the soot at high temperatures. This is usually done by driving the vehicle at high speeds for an extended period of time.
