Carbon Clean (DPF Clean)

Here at Clutch Fit we've teamed up with BG to bring you a simple, effective carbon cleaning solution. We use a state of the art BG carbon cleaning machine and products to clean your DPF, EGR, and many more engine internals.


What are carbon deposits and what is decarbonisation?

(Carbon) Deposits are a by-product of combustion. These deposits attach themselves to many parts of the engine, including those critically important to the performance and economy of the engine - Fuel Injectors, Piston Rings and various sensors. If fuel injectors are dirty this will interfere with the efficiency and effectiveness of the fuel spray pattern. Deposits behind piston rings will restrict the ability of the rings to seal and therefore can cause a loss of compression (essentially the engine's power).

Decarbonisation or engine carbon cleaning usually refers to the process of removing carbon deposits. BG Products develop and manufacture their own high quality chemistry and delivery systems to do this, safely and effectively. Other proprietary systems use different classes of chemistry, hydrogen, hot water or warm oil.


How will carbon cleaning benefit my vehicle?

Normal servicing does not clean the inside of an engine. And as deposits are a natural ongoing by-product of combustion, without preventative maintenance they will accumulate over time. 

Here at Cluth Fit we recommend a dedicated, dual approach – one product for the top half of the engine, to tackle fuel system issues and one for the bottom half, the oil system.

  • Fuel System: Deposits attach themselves to valves, piston crowns and fuel injectors. When fuel injectors get deposits on their fine spray holes (which they inevitably do) it can interfere with the ability of the injector to atomise the fuel into the engine. A fuel system cleaner will help to stop this happening and keep your engine running optimally.

  • Oil System: Cylinder compression is vital for a vehicle's Power and Economy. As a vehicle’s piston moves it squeezes a fuel/air mixture in the cylinder, giving it explosive power. Rings around each piston ensure a good seal. Loss of compression (and therefore power) is usually due to deposits restricting these rings. A BG Engine Performance Restoration flush will clean deposits from rings, restoring peak compression, ensuring maximum Power and Efficiency.
