Naturally, a DPF operates as an emission-reducing measure. Hence, in diesel engines by trapping the exhaust stream particulate matter by the process of filtration.

This process is an efficient and effective way of removing diesel particulate matter (DPM) from the exhaust stream.

During a ‘regeneration’ process, the soot collected is incinerated at high temperatures with virtually no residues.
