Genuine New BM Cats Approved DPF Diesel Particulate Filter - BM11013H. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused. Diesel vehicles have become increasingly popular across the World as diesel engine technology continues to advance due to their superior fuel economy over petrol vehicles. The drawback with diesel vehicles however, is that they have high NOx and particulate emissions compared to their petrol counterparts. In response to this, existing Euro Emissions Standards were tightened and greater environmentally friendly initiatives were developed, such as the implementation of'Stop/Start' technology in many modern vehicles.One of the most prominent developments however was the introduction of Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs). A Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), is a device designed to remove Diesel Particulate Matter or Soot from the Exhaust Gas of a Diesel Engine.
The filter is designed to remove 85% or more of the soot, however, they can be known to remove up to 100%. Some filters are designed for single-use meaning they need to be replaced when the filter is full.
Other filters processes a self-generated cleaning operation, meaning, once the filter needs to be cleaned it will heat to a certain temperature and burn the soot off by the use of a Catalyst. Please Note: Lengths are measured flange to flange in a straight line (shortest distance) and should only be used as a guide.
