Diesel Decarbonisation in Bletchley, Milton Keynes - Signature MK
Decarbonisation can improve your fuel economy between 4-16% so it is worth getting this service if your car feels sluggish. This system is safe and non-intrusive. It aims to remove carbon and contaminants from your car’s engine using a highly refined, non-harmful fuel. The build-up deteriorates performance, reduces fuel economy and increases emissions. The main benefits are:
Areas which decarbonisation can be used:
Diesel engines produce more carbon particulates or soot than petrol and produce more pollutants through exhaust emission like hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen emissions.
Decarbonisation removes hard baked carbon and soot from your engine, injectors, exhaust and sensors giving a cleaner and environmentally friendly vehicular emission by reducing the harmful pollutants.
A Diesel Lambda Sensor is assembled inside an exhaust system and signals the engine ECU to adjust the amount of fuel to be sent to the engine to ensure lowest emissions and best fuel economy. This is by measuring how well the diesel is being used inside the engine and how much diesel can be allowed in. A clogged sensor results in improper information, thereby compromising on the efficiency of the engine and poor fuel economy.
A CAT or Diesel Particulate Filter converts the harmful pollutants into harmless gases and water, which is emitted from the car’s exhaust system, improving the quality of air around us. A Catalytic Convertor that can effectively reduce the emission of soot and other harmful substances are sought after for the effective running of the vehicle as well as environmental safety.
Carbon and soot build up inside your catalytic convertor can markedly reduce the quality of emitted air and it is therefore imperative to keep it cleaned regularly. DPF require more maintenance than CAT. Regular filter maintenance is a necessity. Decarbonisation helps ensure soot and particulate free CAT and DPF.
Clean and properly functioning Diesel Fuel Injectors ensure proper performance and economic mpg. Carbon deposits on the tip of these injectors can affect the optimal spray pattern of the diesel injector. Ensuring your Diesel Fuel Injectors are clean helps to renew and restore performance.
The Diesel Fuel Pump is the heart of the diesel engine. It delivers diesel in a precise rhythmic pattern to ensure that the engine runs smooth. It also controls the amount of fuel to be sent to the engine to keep the desired power. This is done by supplying the fuel to the injectors via a high pressure rail.
This expensive component if not kept clean and soot free, will be open to damage and replacement of this part will be a costly affair. Decarbonisation helps to ensure greater longevity.
A natural byproduct of combustion is carbon which deposits itself as soot, varnish and particulate carbon. These carbon deposits that get collected in various parts of the combustion chamber will affect engine performance, causing it to run slow as well as bringing on start-up problems, overheating and higher fuel consumption.
Decarbonising or decoking your engine and its parts is vital. Decarbonisation makes a previously tedious job simple and more effective. Our Decarbonisation diesel treatments will clean away most of the carbon deposits in the same way as a full engine strip, resulting in a more efficient burn.
