Diesel particle filter: Clean instead of replace
January 13, 2010, 12:24 PM
A solution to the problem of clogged diesel particle filters.
TUNAP Wolfratshausen has developed a cleaning solution and applied for a patent for this product.
The replacement of such filters as hitherto is no longer necessary. This cuts costs for clients enormously and thus increases client satisfaction. Cleaning solution is sprayed onto the filter through extant apertures and dissolves the residues inside. This is then burn off during the regeneration programme.
The particle filter cleaning set from TUNAP contains the MP 131 diesel particle filter cleaner and the MP 132 cleaning concentrate and is available immediately.
If diesel vehicles are mainly used for short distances this filter in the exhaust system is rarely really hot enough to burn off all the residue. It therefore clogs up. In such cases a regeneration programme starts automatically involving injecting more fuel to achieve a higher temperature.
Such regeneration is sometimes impossible, however. Examples of this are in city traffic or jams. If this occurred repeatedly the filter had to be replaced.
TUNAP identified the problem and developed the first particle filter cleaning set that cleans clogged filters quickly, easily and economically. It thus saves a lot of money.
The procedure is to first remove the temperature or pressure sensor in the exhaust system. A probe is inserted through the aperture and used to spray TUNAP MP 131 diesel particle filter cleaner directly onto the filter.
This should be done twice with an interval of about ten minutes so that the solution can work in.
TUNAP MP 132 concentrate is then used to flush out. This dissolves and distributes the residue in the filter so that the regeneration programme can burn it off. The sensor is then
reinstalled and the garage then need only start regeneration manually (if the engine does not do this itself) and under take a twenty-minute test drive.
The whole business is very environment friendly. The dissolved particles are burn to ashes and do not burden the environment. The cleaning solution evaporates.
The new TUNAP cleaner for clogged diesel particle filters is sprayed straight into the filter. It dissolves soot there and this is then burnt in an environment-friendly way.
In addition to the cleaning set we naturally also supply all the tools needed to do the job. Our field staff offer free training too.
