Introducing the world's first on-vehicle DPF & Emissions Service

 • Cleans the DPF
 • Restores performance
 • Improves fuel economy

Introducing the World’s First on-vehicle DPF & Emissions Service - the BG Air Intake and Emissions System Service. It cleans from the air intake, right through the engine to the DPF.

Because “Cleaning the DPF without restoring engine efficiency is like having a heart bypass and not changing your diet.”

The BG Approach is different - Other options only tackle the symptom of the blocked DPF itself. BG’s DPF & Emissions Cleaning System attacks the real problem - poor combustion and the consequence, soot build-up.

Results from a Frank Massey trial of the Service:

Before service: Approx 800 mbar pressure in DPF
After service: Approx 100 mbar pressure in DPF

Exhaust Filters –
A practical alternative to fixed extraction

Vehicle exhaust fumes are still a hazardous problem even with modern engines. Even vehicles fitted with exhaust filters as standard emit the damaging ultrafine particles.

These particles travel further into the respiratory tract taking with them the carcinogenic substances associated with health problems. EHC filters can trap and contain many of these particles.

Benefits of using filters include –

 • Cost effectiveness
 • Available to fit most vehicles and machines
 • Practical to use and truly portable
 • Can be used on diesel and petrol engines
 • Prolongs building decoration life

Catalyser and wall flow filters are also available. Catalysers available for LPG engines.

ASH: The Killer of DPFs

All DPFs fill up with Ash. These are the incombustible remains from fuel detonation, DPF regeneration, oil additives and engine wear metals.

Ash plugs harden over time and remain in DPFs until they are cleaned.

Routinely cleaning DPFs is an important aspect of vehicle maintenance for the following reasons:

• Significantly extend DPF service life
• Ensure correct DPF and exhaust function
• Drastically reduce the need for forced/static
  DPF regeneration
• Eradicate DPF-related vehicle downtime
• Optimise MPG

The Hartridge DPF300 Series enables fast and complete DPF maintenance. It also restores poorly performing and neglected DPFs back to their original operating specifications.
