ALWAYS LOOKING FOR NEW SOLUTIONS, ROTHEN INTEGRATES ITS RANGE OF ADDITIVES WITH AKTION DPF LINE.
ROTHEN AKTION DPF AND ROTHEN AKTION DPF FLUID: TWO SPECIFIC PRODUCTS TO CLEAN ANTI-PARTICULATE FILTERS FAP and DPF.
FAP and DPF, what are them?
The FAP particulate filter is a device adopted to reduce emissions of fine particulate pollutants from diesel engines.
The FAP system aggregates the particulate of exhaust gases in agglomerates of particles without a chemical bond mixing to the diesel a chemical substance called “glycerine” (cerium oxide) that is rich in this feature. These agglomerates are larger than the original particulate, and thus become easily captured by the filter, without dispersing into the atmosphere.
The agglomerates captured by honeycombed filters obviously tend to clog it. Periodically the filter is thus “cleaned” by burning the captured agglomerations: this happens by means of a diesel’s post-injection that is used to increase the temperature of the exhaust gases. FAP’s automatic system decides the most appropriate time for the filter’s regeneration, usually every 300-1000 km (10-15 hours of usage), when driving in suburban locations at speeds of 90 km/h at least, for a minimal 10 to 20 minutes time. If the user does not have the capacity to quickly meet these conditions, complications of technical and economic nature may arise.
In automotive jargon, solutions generically called DPF may be defined as anti-particulate filters, as they work in a similar way to the FAP. The substantial difference, however, is given by the absence of additives: the DPF does not have the need to refill the cerine, but compared to FAP, the absence of additives requires the performance of the regenerative phase at higher temperatures.
What are the drawbacks of regeneration?
- Increased consumption of fuel (in some cases it can double!) and a slight decrease of the performance, albeit limited to the duration of the regeneration phase.
- Increase of the level of oil employed, caused by an excess of oil in the cylinders in order to clean the filter.
- Consequent necessity to replace the lubricant more often, at times every 6,000 km only.
ROTHEN OFFERS TWO EFFECTIVE PRODUCTS FOR THE CLEANSING OF THE FILTER AND AVOID THE DISADVANTAGES OF FORCED REGENERATION:
ROTHEN AKTION DPF SPRAY
A cleansing spray for the purification of all FAP or DPF particulate filter without resorting to their removal.

- Provides increased power and performance to your engine
Available in 500 ml spray can (Pack of 12×500 ml)
ROTHEN AKTION DPF FLUID
Additive for the cleansing of DPF or FAP particulate filters or unmounted catalysts.
- Restores the filter’s optimal operation
- Prolongs filter’s life
- Maximises particulate’s abatement
- Dissolves hardened soot’s deposits and other combustion residues
- Helps dilute considerably the product with greater economy of use
