How does a Carbon Cleaning machine work? Carbon Cleaning machine live in action on a Mercedes

What does a Carbon Cleaning Machine do?

Our Carbon Cleaning machines use electrolysis to split water molecules into the composite elements of oxygen and hydrogen to produce oxyhydrogen (HHO gas). 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.

This mixture ignites the HHO combusts at a much higher temperature than the fuel alone. This atomises the carbon deposits which are expelled through the exhaust system.

Expelling the Carbon Safely

For the final stage of the clean, the hydrocarbon (HC) and Carbon Monoxide (CO) gas react, this then expels past the exhaust valve and out of the tailpipe (through the DPF with Diesel engines).

Do you have the right Carbon Cleaning Machine?

In the ever-changing industry of the automotive aftermarket and unpredictable economic fluctuations, Carbon Cleaning is one of the best investments your business can make to overcome those challenges. Selecting the right equipment is crucial to achieve longevity and required performance for consistent results no matter the vehicle type and size.

Since our inception, we have seen a considerable number of customers who purchase dry cell hydrogen generator kits online. Consequentially they tend to accept their loss and switch to a genuine Carbon Clean Machine from us. Usually, only months after their original investment, customers realise that quality, performance, efficiency, and reliability are important to maintain a constant business growth. Our machines deliver this without fail. No carbon clean machine on the market can compare.

Why Our Carbon Clean Machines are the best on the market?

Unlike the cheaper dry cell hydrogen generator kits online, our Carbon Clean Machines use water and cutting-edge Oxyhydrogen engine cleaning technology to remove up to 100% of carbon deposits.

Each machine uses electrolysis to split water molecules into the composite elements of oxygen and hydrogen to produce oxyhydrogen.

A non-evasive procedure whereby the Oxyhydrogen is fed into the engine through the vehicle’s air intake to mix with the air and fuel in the combustion chambers of the engine. When this mixture ignites the Oxyhydrogen combusts at a much higher temperature than the fuel alone. This atomizes the carbon deposits which are expelled, harmlessly, in gaseous form through the exhaust system.

Given the power and technology being used, an internal filtration system and in-built cooling fans are packaged within the CC-Series machines to ensure safe running of the highly intuitive circuit boards and deliver the best concentration of Oxyhydrogen gas.

This is the safest way to remove carbon deposits from vehicles engines. Whereas dry cell technology has been known to block up the internal pipes, effecting gas flow production.

But that’s not it, there are many other features and benefits of our Carbon Cleaning range which makes our technology so unique:

  • Set & forget feature
  • Easy to operate
  • RAID technology
  • Virtually zero operating costs
  • Value for money machines
  • Accommodates almost any type, make and model of vehicle
  • UK aftercare support
  • Training from our Carbon Clean specialists
  • Ability to try before you buy with our fantastic product demonstrations
  • Trusted and recommended by thousands of Workshops and businesses worldwide

Buy the right machine for your Business

Of course, we understand that many customers choose to invest in the dry cell technology as they see this equipment as more ‘cost effective’. However, this isn’t the long-term option therefore not an ideal unit for a busy workshop.

80% of existing Carbon Clean Machine owners which have later decided to invest in our
Carbon Clean Machines instead have said:

  • The equipment doesn’t perform as it said it would
  • They have no support from their online purchases
  • The equipment is not as it appeared online
  • It’s ineffective
  • Results are not consistent and are unreliable
  • It’s causing damage to my customers engines instead of showing them the benefits

It’s important to note that many of the counterfeit machines found online were originally manufactured for oxyhydrogen welding or cutting. These are simply being re-branded and re-advertised as engine cleaning machines. However, these have not been designed specifically to perform engine cleans. This is purely a damaging profit-making exercise, whereby resellers / drop shippers take advantage of this technology for their own benefit. Damaging not only carbon cleaning reputation but also masking the draw backs of the machines by advertising at a cheap price.

We would encourage all buyers to take great time in understanding exactly why certain carbon cleaning equipment is so cheap – If the cost of the machines you find online is dramatically less than the others you’ve come across. Ask yourself…why is this so cheap?

There is always a reason.

We find it a great shame that such progressive technology is being treated in this way with possibly catastrophic results. If you are looking to embrace oxyhydrogen cleaning in your workshop it is wise to get as many details as you can about the contents of the machine you are about to invest in. To avoid disappointment, time and money wasted and damaging effects to your business.

Don’t be fooled.

There are many cheap, small dry cell machines on the market which use our Carbon Clean UK branding without our consent. Please be aware that these machines are not at all part of our carbon cleaning range. Nor would we like to be associated with these machines. This is full proof that these resellers are using a premium badge like ours to add credibility to their downmarket machines to gain trust and increase their sales.

We would like to encourage anyone who is looking to invest in the world of carbon cleaning to speak to our team. Alternatively, if you already have what you think is an ‘engine cleaning machine’ but it’s not performing as you think it should be you can also contact our team for support and information.

Why Tuning Workshops Are Investing In Carbon Cleaning

AMD Tuning are a leading remapping and tuning specialist workshop in Essex. Their owner, Shaun Hollamby is a successful touring racing driver heavily involved with the BTCC (British Touring Car Championship). It’s fair to say they are very experienced in the racing and performance arena!

In 2018 they became an Approved Carbon Clean Centre Plus and invested in our CC-16 Oxyhydrogen Carbon Cleaning Machine along with our DCS-16 DPF Cleaning Machine. There are many benefits of becoming a centre as you can read here.

AMD Showroom

The Revisit

3 years on we visited their premises to find out how they progressed as an official centre. They use our carbon removal technology on a daily basis, and are seeing great results.

Either offering carbon cleaning to vehicles that come in for regular annual services or part of a performance tuning service to maximise the results. The DPF Cleaning service is also proving to be very popular because when a DPF is blocked it needs immediate attention and our DCS-16 can perform a professional clean in about 2 – 3 hours.

Carbon Clean also sponsored the AMD racing team for the BTCC in 2018. This association reflected the passion for extra performance that our carbon removal technology can offer. It was also amazing to see a limited edition AMD Tuning Scalextric model car which featured our Carbon Clean logo which also demonstrates our key partnership with their brand.

Common Misconceptions about Carbon Cleaning

Common Misconceptions about Engine Carbon Cleaning

There are many misconceptions about engine carbon cleaning or HHO cleaning which make workshops apprehensive about using this new technology.
We take a look at the common misconceptions and answer the myths relating to carbon removal in vehicle engines.

1. Carbon cleaning is ‘hard to sell’.

Many Workshop Owners are under the impression that Carbon Clean Services are hard to sell to drivers. As it’s seen as a more preventative service rather than a necessity. However, engine carbon cleaning is one of very few services which can be suitable for all vehicles. Therefore, if you have a customer coming in for a service you can quite easily make some extra revenue on top of this by offering them a Carbon Clean. Especially once you explain how much this service can improve their fuel economy, and the health of their engine components. We agree that the problem is not widely recognised amongst the general public, but once the customer is educated about the benefits then it’s an easy upsell. For commercial fleets it’s a no-brainer with the improved fuel economy and the increased longevity of engine components.

Take a look at why these workshops became official carbon clean centres >

2. It will damage my customers engines

This is another big misconception about carbon cleaning. Workshops are led to believe that carbon cleaning can cause damage to vehicles. But this is not true. In fact, at Carbon Clean we offer one of the safest ways to efficiently remove up to 100% of carbon built up in vehicles engines. There are cheap alternative machines out there in the market which have tarnished the effectiveness of carbon removal but it’s just a case of poor-quality machines producing poor results. Our wet cell technology is state-of-the-art and has been proven with amazing before/ after results which can be seen in this article. The machines do not use any chemical fluids to remove carbon deposits. We use HHO technology, which can combust in an engine without damaging any vehicle parts. This is the safest way to remove carbon build-up, as the gas travels through the exhaust system seamlessly, without negatively damaging any components.

3. It isn’t going to benefit my customers vehicle

Nobody wants to offer a service or a product which they don’t genuinely believe works. This is completely understandable as there are machines out there which do not live up to carbon cleaning expectations. However, we offer a range of professional, engine carbon cleaning machines which are known for producing the ultimate results both you and your customers want to see. Including improved vehicle performance, a healthier engine and better fuel economy. In fact, we use RAID technology which creates high gas output and provides a longer lasting machine. This means that as a Workshop Owner you are getting the most out of your carbon cleaning investment.
With the higher concentration of HHO, toxic emissions such as CO, CO2, HC & NOX drastically decrease. Our team can demonstrate this by covid-safe site visits where we can perform full demonstrations on our Carbon Clean Machines. With the ability to show you real life, real time results.

We guarantee that you will also be impressed with the near zero operating costs which provides a huge profit potential once you have purchased one of our professional Engine Carbon Cleaning Machines. The machines are so easy to use as you can see in this video demo >
So now you know that these are just misconceptions, what’s stopping you from investing in Carbon Cleaning?

Common Misconceptions about DPF Cleaning

Common Misconceptions about DPF Cleaning

Nowadays DPF Cleaning is an essential service for all types of workshops. Not only is the service easy to perform but having the ability to perform DPF cleans in-house allows you to generate much more workshop revenue and attract many more client segments.
However, there are still many misconceptions about DPF cleaning which hold businesses back from investing in the technology.

1. DPF Cleaning causes damage to the DPF

Here's another one of the major misconceptions about DPF Cleaning. Some workshops and vehicle owners think that high-pressure DPF cleaning can cause damage to the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, our professional DPF Cleaning Machines do the complete opposite. They improve the DPF by removing up to 100% of carbon, soot and ash built up and successfully regenerate the DPF. The machines have operating pressures between 2-6 bar which are optimal pressures that completely unblock soot and ash without affecting the structure of the core element. Furthermore, no harsh chemicals are used which could damage the precious metals within the DPF. The high-pressure air and water along with a special formulated nano catalyst technology solution will clear any DPF's on the market. 
The process of cleaning a DPF is very straight forward as you can see in this article >

2. You get bad waste from DPF cleaning.

DPF Cleaning does mean that you will have a lot of bad waste. However, at Carbon Clean we provide environmentally friendly chemicals which are designed to separate water from solid particulate waste from the DPF (ash & soot sediments). Once they are separated, the DPF waste can easily be deposited into the current waste oil drums which are typically used in the workshop.

3. Your limited to what DPF’s you can clean.

This is another majot misconception Many Workshop Owners do not realise the flexibility of some of the DPF Machines on the market. We are unique in offering a range of professional DPF Machines which have the ability to perform a DPF clean on all types of vehicles. All our machines come complete with all of the appropriate adapters to clean a versatile range of DPF’s no matter what the type of vehicle.

We have a machine to suit your workshop and client base.  
DCS-16 – accommodates all passenger vehicles & vans.
DCS-17 – accommodates all passenger vehicles & commercial fleets.
DCS-20 – accommodates all passenger vehicles & commercial fleets (comes complete with additional features)

View video demo of all our equipment here >

4. It’s better to buy a new DPF.

OEMs make much higher profits from selling new DPF's rather than professional aftermarket restorations and that’s why they push this narrative. The average price of a Mercedes C-class DPF can cost around £2,500 however a professional DPF clean with this technology costs around £250, that’s a tenth of the price. When you consider commercial fleets, that’s an absolutely massive saving which is why our DPF Cleaning Machines have become so popular.

We hope these answered your misconceptions around the subject and now it’s clear to see the true value of adding this service to your workshop and the additional revenue it can bring.
