The exhaust emission standards for new cars have effectively required fitment of a DPF in the exhaust of diesel cars since 2009 when the ‘Euro 5’ standard came into force.
Standards aim to deliver an 80% reduction in diesel particulate (soot) emissions but the technology’s not without problems. Which is why Industry leaders Innotec Supplies (UK) Ltd have been prompted into creating a cost effective solution.
DPF Doctor is an effective cleaner for loosening and removing carbon and soot deposits in the diesel particulate filter and all this without having to dismantle the DPF.
Due to its unique foaming ability and high pressured can the product is able to penetrate deep into the porous ceramic honeycomb of the filter enabling a full and precise clean.
Thanks to its high dissolving power DPF Doctor will thoroughly dissolve the saturated and fatty soot substance in the DPF after which the engine management system can restart the normal regeneration process.
The application of DPF Doctor could not be simpler. When the engine is cold remove the pressure sensor from the filter or disconnect the filter from the engine side. Shake the can well, insert the included aspirator nozzle into the opening and spray the entire contents of the can in 4 to 5 bursts leaving 5 minutes between bursts. Once complete replace the pressure sensor and allow the vehicle to idle for 5 minutes. Then take for a test drive so the regeneration is activated. And it really is that simple!
NOTE: DPF canisters and their associate pressure sensors are located in various differing locations on a vehicle. Sometimes the pressure sensor is easily accessible from underneath the car. However, there are makes of model of vehicle where this can be more difficult and may mean the removal of heat shields and other parts to access the pressure sensor itself, which can then be removed to allow access to insert the flexi tube for product insertion. If in any doubt please contact your local garage or mechanic before purchasing.
Please be aware that all DPF’s have a life expectancy which varies from vehicle to vehicle. Sometimes, if the DPF filter is very badly blocked , no amount of cleaning will return the filter to a driveable healthy state. There is no 100% guarantee with this product, but when compared to a forced regeneration cost (anywhere from £50 to £140) or a new replacement DPF (anywhere up to £1200) then at £19.99 including postage, the INNOTEC DPF DOCTOR has got to be worth a try…….?
