This is the main filter on the later diesel vehicles, it is prone for sooting up, this is a serious problem because often it is undetected until you need to go for an MOT and even then it may not be detected.
If not operating correctly, it clogs the engine up and in extreme cases damaging the engine completely. Now that MOT’s will be making more emphasis on the DPF, this becomes extremely important to keep clean.
The Hydrogen Unit will in effect solve this problem, as well as, being kind to the environment without producing harmful emissions.
The other benefit is, if the engine is running cleaner and is not producing carbon to clog up the DPF, one will not have to have expensive cleaning processes or replacements.
Other components protected by the hydrogen unit are EGR sensor; when there is less carbon in the engine, this important sensor is less likely to become faulty. Depending on the vehicle one is operating, there are a number of associated sensors that could also be affected by carbon. However, this unit will protect your vehicle.
Fuel economy, the hydrogen unit, by making your vehicle run at its optimum level all the time, will effectively mean that it is delivering the peak performance of that vehicle. So far, we have not experienced the decline of economy that we would have done in the past where there has been carbon/soot in the engine.
If you get a warning light showing that the filter's blocked, it should be possible to complete a regeneration and clear the warning light. If you ignore a DPF warning light and keep driving in a relatively slow, stop/start pattern, soot will build up in the filter until your car goes into ‘restricted performance mode’ to prevent damage. However, in some cases, the warning light may not appear, this can have a detrimental affect on the longevity of the engine health. Thus, the addition of a Hydrogen unit to your air intake will greatly assist the DPF and can dramatically reduce the chances of fault or clogging, and ultimately the need to regen entirely!

A Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) helps traps any soot that is present in the exhaust gases. A new study indicates soot or black carbon, plays a far greater role in global warming than previously believed. Reducing some forms of soot emissions, such as from diesel fuel, could prove effective in slowing down the planet’s warming.
We are all constantly exposed to thousands of news and reports about air pollution and climate change. Most of us may already know that any effects on the environment end up affecting us as well. But, In what sense? How does pollution – especially vehicle emissions – affect your health?
Studies show that in fact, poor air pollution can have a detrimental effect, not only on our respiratory health, but our diet, skin and even mental health!
