What is a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)?
Similar to catalytic converters, diesel particulate filters are used to remove harmful matter from exhaust gas. Exclusive to diesel engines, a diesel particulate filter or a DPF is a device designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas.
DPF’s often require more maintenance than catalytic converters. This is a result of ash building up in the filter because it cannot be converted in to a gas in order to pass through the filter efficiently. As a driver, you may receive a warning on your dashboard before the clogging up of your filter becomes an issue that will affect drivability.
Here at Emerald Exhaust Centre, we can expertly take care of your diesel particulate filter replacement needs.
