Diesel Particulate Filter


Diesel Particular Filter filters particles from the burned exhaust gases. These types of filters need maintenance. The walls flow of diesel particulate filter removes 85% or more of the soot, and under certain conditions, can obtain soot removal efficiencies reaching 100%. Some types of filters are single-use intended for disposal and replacement once full orparticulate filter removes 85% or more of the soot, and under certain conditions, can obtain soot removal efficiencies reaching 100%. Some types of filters are single-use intended for disposal and replacement once full or covered with ash,

Failure of fuel injectors or turbochargers resulting in contamination of the filter with raw diesel or engine oil can also require cleaning. The regeneration process can happen at road speeds higher to clean out diesel particulate filters.

Diesel engines is capable of producing a variety of particles during combustion air-fuel mixture. The particle components vary widely dependent upon engine type, age, and the emissions specification that the engine can obtain. Two-stroke diesel engines can produce more particulate per unit of power than do four-stroke diesel engines as they burn the air-fuel mixture completely
