DPF Regen Treatment – How Does Regeneration Work?
DPF regeneration works by introducing diesel fuel into the inlet end of a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and igniting it to generate heat. The goal is to raise the Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT) high enough to ignite soot and burn it out of the filter, thus keeping the filter from clogging. Soot burns at temperatures in excess of 1000 degrees F, whereas an average EGT is typically lower, 900 degrees or less depending on engine operating conditions. DPF manufacturers recommend the use of diesel treated with a Fuel Borne Catalyst (FBC) to help with DPF regeneration. The catalyst ingredient reduces the soot “burn-out” temperature to an EGT of around 750 degrees. The result is fewer active regeneration cycles and many more miles of trouble-free driving.
Reduce Expenses From DPF Maintenance
If you are fighting with DPF regeneration issues or wish to prevent them from occurring in the first place, there is a thoroughly tested and proven, cost-effective solution. Simply add Better Diesel FBC to your diesel fuel and enjoy the many benefits of using a fuel borne catalyst to assist your diesel engine to burn fuel more completely and run more efficiently. Independent tests prove soot production by the engine is reduced by 60% or more when using our FBC. Your diesel engine will run better and last longer without the typical DPF regeneration and exhaust-side maintenance problems caused by diesel particulate matter (PM), also known as “soot”.
Our FBC products are proven to lower expenses from DPF system maintenance and repairs. Our FBC products more than pay for themselves with on-going savings from less diesel fuel consumption. Most importantly, consistent use of the FBC keeps you and your truck where you want to be, that is, on the road and earning money. We help transport truck owner-operators and fleet owners like you keep more of the money they earn.
