DPF Treatment to the vehicle fuel tank

Diesel Particulate Regeneration

The increase in the popularity of diesel powered vehicles is well documented and the reasons for the increase in the popularity over recent years is that diesel engines unlike in the past have evolved to now perform more like the traditional petrol engines, with the added benefit of vastly improved fuel economy.

The disadvantage of this however is diesel exhaust emissions (Black Smoke). Diesel fuel is derived from a form of heating oil, this does not allow for an environmentally friendly engine.

To improve the efficiency and exhaust gas emissions on modern diesel engines manufacturers are now fitting Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) to modern diesel engines.

The DPF is fitted in the vehicles exhaust system and catches or collects exhaust gases and soot particles from the engine reducing exhaust gas emissions, as with all filters they need to be cleaned from time to time to prevent blocking.

DPF is designed to be cleaned by the vehicle under certain driving conditions; this is normally at freeway speed. If the filter is not cleaned it will eventually block causing operating problems with the vehicle.

Fortron Diesel Particulate Filter Treatment (DPF) contains a proven catalytic additive which reduces the size of the soot particles produced during combustion and lowers the temperature at which the soot is burned off during the regeneration (cleaning) process.

The introduction of DPF on diesel engines has caused problems with vehicles that only travel in urban cycles and often do not travel at freeway speed, for the vehicle to effectively clean the D.P.F the vehicle is required to travel a freeway speed for a period of time to allow the regeneration process. If this is not carried out eventually the D.P.F will become blocked and cause the vehicle to become underpowered and in some cases stop.

Fortron Diesel Particulate Filter Treatment (DPF) has been formulated as a fuel tank additive to treat this problem and to act as a preventive maintenance tool. By adding Fortron DPF Treatment to the vehicle fuel tank, it will greatly extend the period required for the DPF to be cleaned.
