Diesel Particulate Filter and how it operates?
Diesel emissions are 90% lower since the 1980s; however exhaust regulations based on statistical studies dealing with the health impact of exhaust emissions continue to demand even lower gaseous and particulate diesel emissions. Particulate emissions are responsible for the characteristic black exhaust fumes emitted from the diesel engine. They are a complex mixture of solid and liquid components with the majority of particulates being carbon micro spheres on which hydrocarbons from the engines fuel and lubricant condense.
If you own a diesel car, you probably have a diesel particulate filter, however, you may not know exactly what this is or what it means for you, so here we explain exactly what they are, what they do, why you need them and how to maintain them. read more →
