How Does a Diesel Aftertreatment System Work?
A diesel aftertreatment system consists of a series of steps designed to reduce harmful emissions. As the exhaust stream exits the engine, it passes through catalysts and filters that effectively remove particulate matter (PM), which includes soot and ash, from the exhaust. Additionally, the fumes mix with Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), reacting to convert harmful nitrogen oxide into harmless nitrogen and water vapour. This process helps minimize the environmental impact of diesel engines while ensuring compliance with emissions standards.
What is a DPF Removal?
A DPF removal, also known as a delete, involves removing or disabling the Diesel Particulate Filter. It's important to note that DPF removals are completely illegal under Canadian law due to their negative impact on air quality and violation of emissions regulations. Repair shops offering DPF removals/deletes should be reported as they compromise the environment and contribute to excessive pollution.
