Carbon Cleaning & Tuning, a perfect partnership

 

Why would a tuning company benefit from Carbon Cleaning?

The aftermarket world for car performance tuning is an incredibly competitive business – styling changes, trends come and go; it can be difficult to keep up! But at its core the quest for more power and improved performance never goes away. So how can a Carbon removal help in that quest for improved performance?

Carbon naturally builds up within the engine and also within the Diesel particulate filter. This reduces the efficiency of the engine. More so the older vehicle is, the more of an impact this can cause to the bhp. Therefore, simply doing a tune up to an engine which has already lost performance is not the ideal situation.

About 75% of fuel is wasted

Did you know that with each litre of fuel used in an engine, only around 25% is used to generate performance? The 75% approximately remaining  is said to be wasted – generating mostly heat, highly contaminant gases and carbon residues.

These carbon deposits build up over time creating obstructions within the internals of the engine. Difficult to detect – these obstructions will at a minimum result in increased fuel consumption and poor emissions – but worst of all for the enthusiastic driver, engine performance and driveability can be drastically reduced causing issues in various sections of the power train.

Independent back to back rolling road tests have shown just how much horsepower can be lost over time – in fact a McClaren 12C with 36k miles on the clock found an extra 43bhp after a 30 minute HHO clean.  This is where a Carbon Clean machine really fits a purpose for a tuning company.

One of the most popular aftermarket modifications, Stage 1 OBD remaps offer great value for money and give excellent improvements to both performance and economy. But it's possibly one of the most cut-throat areas of the market; a lot of companies do it, some unbelievably cheap re-maps are being offered and some wild horsepower results are being made.

How can a tuning company stand out and add value to their remapping offer?

Engine Carbon Cleaning

The Carbon Clean machine will enable you to offer far more than your rivals can, with solid performance gains. Take a 2014 Golf GTi for example; 216bhp is quoted by VW as new, most tuners are quoting 300bhp from a stage 1 map. That’s a great gain but for the reasons described earlier the vast majority of ’14 plate Golf GTi’s out there are not producing the 216bhp quoted by VW anymore…but 30 mins on the CC machine and that cars performance will have been restored to close to as new, and this is before you add the 84bhp delivered by the map!

The result will be a quicker car than any of your rivals are able to produce for the same money, and one very impressed customer. And thanks to the almost zero running costs of the CC machine you can offer this package very competitively!

India Steps up Emission Regulations with BS-VI

The Carbon Clean team were at the Auto Expo2020 show in Delhi, promoting ways to reduce carbon. As part of the UK delegation with the SMMT, we were thrilled to meet so many influencers in the Indian Automotive sector. It was positive to see so many initiatives to reduce carbon emissions within the country.

The Indian government have been keen to tackle the issues of pollution in the country. Specifically they will be implementing BS-VI DPF into commercial vehicles from April 2020, which means that all new vehicles will meet need to meet the new requirements. This is equivilent of the Euro-6 DPF prevelent in Europe.

This move should reduce the carbon emissions which are emitted from these heavy-duty vehicles which account for a large part of the ground transportation in India.

This also creates a huge opportunity for our carbon removal machines. Specifically our DCS range offers deep cleaning of blocked DPF which will be in high demand as these new BS-VI vehicles will innevitable get blocked over the coming months and years.

We have a range of machines which off off-car DPF cleaning as well as on-car engine carbon cleaning suitable for all types of vehicles.

The benefits of removing carbon from various parts of the engine and DPF are:

  • Beter fuel economy
  • Lower Harmful Emissions
  • Restored Engine Performance
  • Healthier Engine

Our products are easy to use and do not incorporate any harsh chemicals.

Car Pollution- Why Electric cars aren’t enough!

While electric cars have been hitting the headlines, there is no denying that they are a long way from being adopted on a mass basis. At present, electric vehicles are simply not affordable for most of the UK population. This is why we need to find other ways to lower carbon emissions.

According to a report from the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee, approximately 20,000 conventional vehicles would need to be taken from the roads per week for the next 31 years in order for the UK to reach its 2050 goal of having “almost every car and van” to be “zero-emission.”

This sounds like a very unrealistic target by any means, so we need to look for aletrnative methods to reduce harmful emissions.

One of the most effective ways to lower carbon emissions is with carbon removal technology. Carbon is created due to incomplete combustion in engine cylinders. This builds up layers of hardened, black carbon. This is why using specialist carbon cleaning machines can help you to lower your emissions and ensure your engine runs smoothly, meaning you are less likely to have problems in the future. 

Carbon cleaning machines can be used on a wide range of vehicles, including those with hybrid, petrol, or diesel engines. They can also be used on passenger vehicles, motorbikes, agricultural vehicles, all commercial vehicles and even motorboats! 

These machines make the most of state-of-the-art HHO engine cleaning technology. Electrolysis is used in each machine to split water molecules into the composite elements of hydrogen and oxygen, creating HHO or oxyhydrogen gas. 

The result of using this equipment includes lower carbon emissions being expelled into the environment, as well as engine performance being restored. Other benefits include better throttle response, smoother running engines, and improved fuel economy. 

When you consider the fact that electric cars are far away from being adopted on a large scale, you see why it is important to look for other ways to reduce the emissions you are responsible for.

This report by the government’s Science committee highlights the uphill struggle to migrate the huge number of vehicles over to electric setups. Investing in a carbon cleaning machine is undoubtedly one of the best solutions, and will still prove to be a lucrative investment for many years to come.

How does Carbon Cleaning Work?

Firstly, Why does Carbon build up in combusion engines?

Carbon is produced due to incomplete combusion in the engine cylinders, and builds up layer upon layer of black, hardened carbon. This affects the smooth running of the engine and causes many other issues in all types of combusion vehicles like passenger cars, HGVs and even tractors to name but a few. Hybrid vehicles also have feature a combuson engine and therefore will incure carbon build-up in those parts. But how exactly does carbon cleaning work within your engine and is it safe for your vehicle?

HHO Technology

Our products use cutting-edge HHO engine cleaning technology to solve the problem. Each machine uses electrolysis to split water molecules into the composite elements of oxygen and hydrogen to produce oxyhydrogen or HHO gas.

The Setup Process

Our specially designed machines are set according to the engine size.
The HHO is fed into the engine through the vehicle’s air intake valve to mix with the air and fuel in the combustion chambers of the engine. Most of our machines can offer this service in a workshop or mobile location.

In the Engine Cylinders

When this mixture ignites the HHO combusts at a much higher temperature than the fuel alone. This effectively atomizes the carbon deposits as the engine is idling over the period of 30-40 minutes.

Expelling the Carbon Safely

The final products of the reaction is hydrocarbon (HC) and Carbon Monoxide (CO) gas. This is safely expelled past the exhaust valve, through the DPF (with diesel engines) and out of the tailpipe.

This revolutionary technology is more efficient, ecological and much kinder to the engine than the traditional chemical methods used. The process is also non-invasive: a technician can now clean an engine in a matter of minutes without first disassembling it. Still unsure, watch our demonstration video of our most popular HHO machine, the CC-16.

How to Prove a Carbon Clean has worked?

As a result of a carbon clean you should feel a noticeable difference afterwards, including these main benefits:

  • Better Fuel Economy
  • Smoother running Engine
  • Better throttle Responce
  • Restore Engine Performance
  • Lower Carbon emissions expelled into the environment

You can also perform an emissions and diagnostics test before/ after the Carbon Clean to see the clear statistical difference.

What Vehicles can be Carbon Cleaned?

  • Diesel/ Petrol/ Hybrid Engines
  • Passenger Vehicles
  • All Commercial Vehicles
  • Agricultural vehicles
  • Motorbikes
  • Motor Boats

Why Carbon Clean your Engine?

How to Clean a DPF

 

Here's the correct way to clean a DPF…

Most mechanics are still unsure about DPF Cleaning and sending them away can take time, causing a lost opportunity to gain extra profit for your garage. Here's how easy it is to restore a DPF, and most of our machines have an automatic feature meaning that even a junior mechanic can perform a deep clean in just 20 minutes! 
Take a look…

Firstly, Why does a DPF get Blocked?

Usually around every 300 miles or so the DPF will regenerate by super-heating the filter to burn off the contaminated particles that collect there as soot and ash. Most of the soot is then expelled through the exhaust as finer particles of harmless ash. However, it has been found that the regeneration process leaves residual ash behind in the filter. Each time a regeneration occurs more particles will build up in the filter.

Over time carbon will block the DPF and cause several issues within your engine. The Carbon-Clean DPF ProClean Treatment, when used alongside our DCS machines, is a fast and cost effective way to completely clean and protect any DPF. Our range of machines offer fast, simple and effective cleaning of the DPF filter from within the workshop.

Step 1

Remove the blocked DPF from the vehicle. This is normally a straight forward job for most mechanics. Our machines can restore passenger vehicle DPFs to even HGV commercial DPFs!

Step 2

Soak the DPF in our specially formulated ProClean solution for 20 minutes. This loosens up the hard, unburnt soot and ash, and prepares the DPF for a thorough clean.

Step 3

The DPF is then connected securely to our high quality machines which come with all types of accessories to fit any DPF. The accessories include various nuts and bolts to block out any O2 sensor holes (and others) for effective cleaning.

Step 4

High pressure air and water is then pumped through to thoroughly clean all parts of the DPF in just 20-30 minutes. Some of our machines incorporate features to show before/ after pressure readings, and even have a dryer for quicker turnaround times.

Step 5

The DPF is now restored and can be installed back to the vehicle. We also suggest using our ProClean Power & Protect solution which coats the DPF, to slow down the carbon build-up again.

The Benefits with our DPF Cleaning Machines:


– Better Fuel Economy. We'd expect a 5-8% difference
– Restored Engine Performance
– Lower Engine Noise
– Increased lifespan of the Engine

 

Our Unique Equipment can restore the following DPFs

– Cars

– All Commercial Vehicles

– Agricultural Vehicles

– Motorbikes

– Boats
