DPF Regeneration Explained

DPF regeneration is a process that helps clean and clear the diesel particulate filter in a vehicle’s exhaust system. The DPF is designed to trap soot and particulate matter from the diesel exhaust, reducing harmful emissions. Over time, the DPF can become clogged with this trapped material, which can negatively impact engine performance and fuel efficiency.There are two main types of DPF regeneration:

Passive Regeneration

This occurs naturally when the vehicle is driven at high speeds for an extended period. The high exhaust temperatures during high-speed driving help to burn off the accumulated soot in the DPF

Active Regeneration

When the soot level in the DPF reaches around 45% of its capacity, the vehicle’s electronic control unit (ECU) will initiate an active regeneration process. This involves injecting additional fuel into the exhaust to increase the temperature and burn off the trapped soot.

Failure to properly regenerate the DPF can lead to the filter becoming completely blocked, which can cause performance issues, increased emissions, and potentially damage the engine.

Regular high-speed driving or forced regeneration by a mechanic is required to prevent this, which is where our DPF Regeneration Service comes in.

Diesel Particulate Filter FAQ’s

  • DPF regeneration is a process where the filter burns off excess soot to maintain performance and reduce emissions

  • Regeneration can happen automatically through passive regeneration while driving at sustained speeds or actively through methods like forced regeneration or filter replacement

  • Symptoms of a blocked DPF include decreased performance, increased exhaust smoke, and engine warning lights

  • It is not recommended to clean a DPF yourself as it requires specialized knowledge and handling by trained mechanics

  • The frequency of regenerations can vary based on driving conditions, with some solutions claiming to reduce regens significantly

  • Regular maintenance, including cleaning or replacing the DPF when necessary, is crucial to prevent issues and ensure compliance with MOT requirements

  • Active regeneration involves raising exhaust temperatures to burn off excess soot and is particularly useful for vehicles with limited high-temperature driving conditions
