Intended to destroy soot particles, the Diesel Particulate Filter (or DPF) is unfortunately not eternal. Several elements can drastically reduce the lifetime of this device on vehicles. For example, this is the case of diesel cars that become dirty due to urban use and short daily journeys. Every so often, the DPF wears itself out and no longer performs its regeneration functions. This makes it necessary to replace the DPF. This is an operation frequently performed by dealerships, garages and car centers.
A quick search on the internet will lead you to a conclusion: the price of a DPF replacement is very unequal. Generally, the service (supply of a new DPF and assembly) is invoiced between 800 and 4,000 €. This varies both according to the type of sign that carries out the operation, but also the quality of the DPF itself.Moreover, the most expensive models are not necessarily the best. On this subject, some dealerships sell this anti-pollution device at a high price. However, too frequently the DPF is from previous generations and of inferior quality. To increase their margins, some do not hesitate to employ materials that age poorly. If in doubt, request the DPF reference that is submitted to you. If it is not made of stainless steel, then the risk of rust is strongly present.
Generally speaking, the cost of the DPF is proportional to the size of the car. In the same way, Premium manufacturers tend to charge more for their DPF than generalist manufacturers, without the quality necessarily being superior. However; in addition to the purely mechanical part, every garage must have its diagnostic case on the OBD (on-board computer) part of your car to initialize it and allow it to function.
At Krosfou, we have understood the stakes and the problems confronting drivers. Therefore, the Diesel Particulate Filters that we manufacture conform to overly strict specifications. Very often They are of a more outstanding quality than those offered directly by the network of car manufacturers. By making DPF more accessible (sometimes three to four times less expensive than the manufacturer's price). We make it possible for you to install quality — and durable — equipment on your car. If certain mechanical parts do not require a particular standard, the DPF must be carefully selected. By analyzing the most frequent causes of failures, we have found that lower quality DPF do not allow sufficient regeneration cycles to burn off the collected stool particles. The consequence is the device is clogged until it breaks down. It was therefore significant to compensate for this by selecting durable materials and promote the elimination of pollutants.
Some professionals make generous margins by displaying their DPF at a premium price. However, there are very worthwhile alternatives for a considerably lower cost. We offer you the possibility to find a DPF that properly matches with your car without further delay. You will be capable to make your choice among our DPF manufactured by us, adequately meeting the most demanding standards... And made of stainless steel and ceramic. No rust, no trouble! Finally, the cost price will be much bearable.
