Prevent an expensive diesel particulate filter replacement and related vehicle failure!
You certainly would not like to hear your workshop manager say “The diesel particulate filter is full, you have to buy a new one". For a new diesel particulate filter (DPF) you have to invest an average of € 1,400, including installation.
A DPF only has a limited capacity to store soot particles. At a certain amount of soot, it must be burned to CO2 and ash in a regeneration process.
If the soot cannot be decomposed in the DPF, a corresponding ash formation will automatically result. The DPF is clogged by ash, it can no longer work, and a costly replacement in the workshop lies ahead.
For vehicles that are predominantly driven in short-haul operation (stop and go), i.e. less than 20 km, service life of the DPF is significantly reduced. In short distance operation, the diesel particulate filter cannot reach the required operating temperature for the regeneration process.
This is exactly where MATHY-DPF comes into effect, because the necessary combustion temperature for the soot in the DPF is lowered and the regeneration process can take place at lower operating temperatures. Service life of the DPF is extended.
If your vehicle shows the following characteristics, it is normally too late to prevent the costly diesel particulate filter replacement:
- The malfunction indicator lamp in the dashboard is already lit.
- The vehicle has no more power
- Emergency operation has already been initiated
- The vehicle has a high fuel consumption
