Carbon Cleaning Services

The South West DPF Cleaning team (part of Top Tuning Limited) are highly trained and experienced in cleaning your vehicles components including DPF’s, dirty valves, dirty turbo vanes, dirty EGR valve’s & blocked catalytic converters.

We provide a range of vehicle cleaning services including On-Car DPF Cleaning, Air Intake & EGR Cleaning, Industrial Off-Car DPF Cleaning & Carbon Cleaning.

Carbon Clean – Restore lost engine power and performance, increase MPG and reduce harmful engine emissions. By removing the built-up carbon deposits within your engine; the engine can run and breathe more freely. Making the engine quieter, smoother and more efficient. A complete engine decarbonisation takes less than 45 minutes and removes up to 75% of harmful carbon deposits; that has built up and cling to expensive engine components and airways. So revitalise your engine with a carbon clean and see the benefits immediately.

Our Specialist Injector Cleaner is formulated specifically to remove Injector Deposits  and ensure injector cleanliness, restore spray pattern and restore combustion efficiency. Other benefits include – Restores lost power and acceleration by removing harmful deposits that build up over time, Improves fuel economy and overall engine performance due to fuel system clean-up, Lowers exhaust gas emissions, Easier cold starting and better ignition quality.

Our Particulate Filter Cleaner and Regenerator has been specifically formulated to combat the adverse effects that start/stop driving conditions have on Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) regeneration. With a continued stop/start driving pattern, soot loading builds up in the DPF since the ECU is unable to make the necessary small adjustments to the fuel injection timing to increase the exhaust temperature and initiate regeneration. Our DPF Cleaner and Regenerator uses a catalyst to adhere to the soot particles during combustion, lowering the temperature at which they can be burnt off. The soot particles will burn at lower temperatures in the soot filter area, helping to regenerate the filter, especially in cases where exhaust temperatures are low, like stop and go traffic, city traffic and short drives. Other benefits include -Aids passive regeneration of Diesel Particulate Filter,  Actively reduces soot emissions, Improves stability of Diesel Particulate Filter systems.

How often should I book a carbon clean?

Consider a carbon clean as a preventative form of maintenance, a bit like your regular vehicle service. In fact we recommend a carbon clean should form part of your annual service schedule. Once a year or every 12,000 miles is the recommended schedule for a carbon clean.

What are the economic benefits?

A carbon clean will save you money by increasing your MPG, extending the lifecycle of expensive components.

What are the other benefits?

You will notice an increase in engine performance; your vehicle will become more responsive, improved drivability.

How does it work?

Our mobile technicians are fully equipped with the latest hydrogen generators and are fully independent, meaning they can attend your home, work or a convenient rendezvous.

We run your engine to bring it up to normal running temperature, we then attach a hydrogen feed into your air intake and our generator pulses regulated hydrogen into your engine. This process is completely safe and the engine runs normally during the cleansing process.

By injecting hydrogen the combustion temperature is raised to trigger a pyrolysis, a chemical reaction that vaporises, and eliminates carbon deposits.

Our Carbon Cleaning service cleans:

  • Dirty Valves

  • Dirty Turbo Vanes

  • Dirty EGR Valve

  • Blocked DPF Filter

  • Blocked Catalytic Converter

What are the benefits of a Carbon Cleaning?

  • Works on all engines, diesel, petrol, or LPG

  • Removes up to 75% of the sooty, scaly carbon residue

  • Restores fuel consumption and engine power and performance

  • Extends the life cycle of expensive engine parts like the turbo vanes, EGR valve, DPF’s, catalytic converters, injectors, valves and airways etc.

  • Engine noise is reduced

  • Emissions are drastically reduced

  • Improved fuel economy

  • Engine’s life cycle is extended

  • Our service is not about giving an engine more power, it’s about giving the engine back the power it has lost over time due to carbon build-up and assisting it to run and breathe more easily

  • Suitable for cars, vans, trucks, HGV’s, boats and even motorbikes

  • Our technicians are fully mobile and come to you

Why do i need a carbon clean?

When burning fuel in a petrol, diesel or LPG engine, small amounts of carbon residue are produced and some of these carbon particles cling to the internal components and airways within the engine, over time these carbon particles build-up and form a crusty residue over the working parts within your engine.

Your valves, pistons, turbo-vanes and EGR valves are all at risk of being effected by excessive carbon deposits.
