Diesel Particulate Filter.
A diesel engine produces Particulate Matter (PM), also referred to as soot particles, during normal operation. A DPF is fitted in the exhaust system to filter soot out of the exhaust gases to ensure that the vehicle complies with EURO 4 emission standards (Australian Design Rule: ADR 79/01-Emission Control for Light Vehicles). As soot accumulates on the DPF periodic cleaning is required to remove the deposits.
