A. Modern day diesel engines are now often fitted with one or more of the Exhaust Gas Recirculation Systems, Diesel Particulate Filters or Adblue Systems designed by engine manufacturers to reduce harmful exhaust emissions now demanded by government authorities.
Exhaust Gas Recirculation Systems are designed, simply, to pass exhaust gases back through to the inlet manifold in an attempt to "re-burn" the exhaust gases and thus reduce exhaust emissions. Obviously, this can cause huge problems as carbon deposits can often track back into the inlet manifold with the exhaust gases, at times, causing complete failure of the EGR Valve and almost completely blocking the inlet manifold. This can result in a very expensive repair as well as excessive down time as the inlet manifold often has to be soaked for three days to remove the carbon.
Failure within an EGR System can occur in as little as 30,000km from new. The consistent use of Pro-Ma Performance Products DT5 Diesel Fuel Treatment in every tank of fuel can greatly assist in eliminating this problem with EGR Systems.
The "Combustion Modifier" in DT5 diesel fuel treatment is designed to assist the diesel fuel to burn completely and more efficiently within the combustion chamber saving money on fuel useage and eliminating carbon deposits within the combustion chamber. Therefore, with EGR Systems, because there is no deposit of carbon, there will be no tracking of carbon through to the EGR system and no blocking of the inlet manifold saving a very expensive repair.
Diesel Particulate Filters are often installed within the exhaust system (in a similar way a catalytic converter is installed in petrol engine vehicles), again, in an attempt to reduce harmful exhaust emissions demanded by government authorities.
Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) are designed to capture harmful exhaust particulates (often these can be carcinogenic) before they enter the atmosphere. The DPF is designed to "burn off" the captured particulates when these particulates reach a certain level. However, to burn off the particulates, the vehicle needs to be driven at highway speeds. Often in family type running, the vehicle is not driven at highway speeds and this can cause blockage of the DPF requiring that vehicle to be returned to the manufacturers workshop for service incurring a costly workshop repair, and, if sufficiently damaged, a complete replacement of the diesel particulate filter often costing many thousands of dollars.
Again, the great benefit of Pro-Ma Performance Products DT5 diesel fuel treatment, through the action of the Combustion Modifier, the fuel burns more efficiently and completely in the combustion chamber so little to no particulates will be emitted through the exhaust system and into the diesel particulate filter saving significant costs in diesel use and repair and downtime costs.
Adblue Systems are often installed in diesel vehicles again as an attempt to reduce the harmful exhaust emissions. This is done by installing a separate reservoir where the Adblue liquid (simply urea) is injected into the exhaust system when the onboard computer recognises the exhaust emissions are above a certain level. This is designed to "neutralise" the harmful exhaust emissions. Commercial operators of diesel vehicles often report that the consistent use of Pro-Ma Performance Products with the Combustion Modifier reduces and almost eliminates the need for any Adblue to be injected into the exhaust system proving the Combustion Modifier operates as designed as well as saving money.
