Basics of a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) and EGR delete

Drawing of a typical DPF system

The purpose of DPF the system is to filter a diesel engines exhaust system, primarily for soot and particulates. The system is structured like a honeycomb filter; as the honeycombs fill up, replacement of the filter is required to sustain normal operation. If the system is not maintained in optimal condition, clogging is expected and this not only causes a drastic reduction in vehicle operation, but also damage and strain the engine.

To clean the DPF honeycombs structure during its life, the system periodically burns of diesel to push the soot out. Not only is this self-cleaning cycle prone to damage and malfunction, (requiring costly maintenance), it also negates much of the environmental benefits of the system.

Deleting the system completely, solves any potential future issues with the DPF system and its ongoing maintenance.

Primary Benefits:

  • Fuel efficiency -> may improve as high as 30%
  • Improves performance
  • No longer having to maintain the system
  • Reduced engine pressure
  • Improved engine longevity

How the job is performed

The DPF, EGR, and DEF systems have a primary physical component and also a technical component which requires re-programming of the engine control unit. Accordingly, the delete is performed in stages from DPF, DOC, DEF delete – including the physical removal of the EGR (Exhaust gas recirculation), re-programing, and the replacement of the variable turbo with a standard turbo.

BC Legislation

The deletion of the system is currently legal in BC and does not break any federal laws. There is a possibility of new legislation being passed in the future. However, at the time of this writing there is no planned legislation in this area and in the worst case scenario it is possible to re-install the system at a a later time.

Nuances of a DEF (Diesel Engine Fluid) delete

  • Basically identical to the DPF system, but uses a different agent to burn-off the and clear the soot.
  • Water is also a critical component of the system and issues are more common in colder temperatures.

Other components of diesel filtration systems

  • diesel oxidization catalyst
  • exhaust gas recirculation systems
  • variable geometry turbochargers
  • urea injection system
