J&S Automotive Distributors tells us that it is stocking a new heavy duty JLM DPF Cleaner for 2018. It says that it is one of the best diesel particulate ﬁlter cleaners for trucks and ﬂeet owners on the market. it adds that JLM DPF Cleaner – Heavy Duty contains a very high concentration of the active additive.
Almost all modern trucks are equipped with Diesel particulate ﬁlters, and even many older trucks and buses have been retroﬁtted with the DPF as major additions to exhaust systems due to changing regulations in recent years.
DPFs are much more complex and expensive pieces than the simple exhaust systems they have replaced. The DPF ﬁlter captures incompletely combusted fuel (soot) from the truck’s engine that would otherwise end up in the environment. In the course of time the ﬁlter becomes full. The truck’s electronics ensure that this soot is burned during motorway driving or when the engine is under a heavy load. This is known as Regeneration.
