Diesel particulate filters, also known as DPFs, are frequently used as part of the more advanced pollution control systems found on more recent diesel engines. These filters are designed to prevent dangerous pollutants from being discharged into the atmosphere. When these filters begin to get full, they have to go through a process called “regeneration,” in which the soot that has collected in the filter is converted into ash by the use of chemical processes that take place at high temperatures.
Diesel operators have been afflicted with diminished power and performance over the past many years due to regens, and sadly, High Pressure Common Rail (HPCR) diesel engine technology is mostly to blame for this issue. There is more than one cause that has contributed to the combustion problems that modern diesel engines are experiencing.
By utilizing Diesel Kleen +Cetane Boost, it is possible to quickly and effectively solve the key concerns, therefore enabling the system to perform as intended and achieving the highest possible level of combustion.
1. Deposits on the Injectors Because modern injectors have tolerances of 1 to 3 microns, tiny deposits will lead to injector clogging and/or inadequate fuel atomization if they are not removed.
2. Low Cetane: Naturally occurring cetane levels that are lower than 50 do not permit for maximal combustion, which results in an increase of unburned fuel within the combustion chamber.
DIRTY INJECTORS cause inadequate fuel injection and poor atomization, which leads to decreased power and performance. This is because the burning of the fuel is hindered.

INJECTORS THAT ARE CLEAN lead to correct fuel injection and atomization, which in turn makes for more thorough combustion.
Because diesel engines use compression ignition, the fuel must to have the ability to rapidly auto-ignite, and the sooner it can do so, the better. A greater cetane value, which indicates a shorter ignition delay time, almost always indicates that the fuel is being burned more completely. This results in an increased combustion rate and a decrease in the amount of soot loading in DFP.
A more effective combustion process, beginning with the injection stage and continuing through combustion, will result from injectors that have been well cleaned and cethane values that are higher. If you increase the pace at which the diesel is burned, the DPF will collect less particles, which will have the effect of reducing the amount of soot loading and regen cycles. This will make it possible to achieve maximum performance and power.
