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?

New Super Deduction Scheme

New Super Deduction Scheme for workshops

Benefits of the new Government Supertax Deduction scheme

The covid-19 pandemic has left many workshops struggling to invest in the new machinery that they require. However, in this year’s budget, Chancellor Rishi Sunak has announced an amazing new scheme to enable workshops to benefit from new equipment purchases and offset their tax liabilities.

Super Deduction Scheme Explained

In the past businesses have been able to claim capital allowances when they purchase new equipment. The value of such equipment gets deducted from your profits meaning you will save money on your tax bill.

However, this new Super deduction scheme for workshops is now even more attractive, allowing you to offset 130% of the asset value against the taxable profit in that first year. That’s around a saving of 25p for every £1 you spend.

From the 1st April 2021 right up till 31st March 2023 you’ll be able to claim this higher tax relief.

Who can benefit from Super Deduction?

The supertax deduction scheme is not only workshops but will cover many different businesses, industries and sectors. The great news is that it covers this sector but there are a few rules:
• It only applies to UK businesses that are subject to corporation tax. Sole traders and partnerships are therefore not included.
• Businesses that intend to keep the newly bought equipment
• Purchases must be bought in cash, HP or through a loan from 01/04/2021 to 31/03/2023

This covers the basics but should you need further info, contact our team or your business accountant.

What equipment can I purchase?

According to HMRC this scheme applies to plant and machinery. The great news is that it covers a huge range of our products from DPF Cleaning machines to engine carbon cleaning machines to other essential equipment that a progressive workshop needs.

Just to also note that the following equipment will not fall under the new scheme:
• Second-hand or used equipment
• Cars
• Integral features and long term assets like lighting systems etc

Hire purchase agreements do qualify however they must fall within the two-year period.

Real equipment examples

The exciting news is that you can save thousands off brand new, top of the range equipment with Carbon Clean. Here are just a few examples.

The official calculation is:
Your effective saving = Cost of equipment x 1.3 x 0.19
Every £1 you spend you will save around 25p, it’s that simple!

So it’s clear to see that now is an amazing time to develop your business and invest in better equipment for a fraction of the normal price.

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.

What would you say if we told you that we had a business opportunity that will help you to increase your workshop revenue and allow your workshop to “Go Green”?

How our HHO Technology works…

Each Carbon Cleaning machine uses electrolysis to split water molecules into the composite elements of oxygen and hydrogen to produce oxyhydrogen or HHO gas. A non-evasive procedure whereby 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. When this mixture ignites the HHO 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. View our illustration for more information. Once carbon is removed from the vehicle, this improves the life of the engine, offers better fuel economy and improves vehicle performance. The vehicle will then be left with virtually zero carbon deposits, therefore less carbon will be entering the earth’s atmosphere. This procedure goes a long way in reducing vehicle carbon emissions into our cities. If that wasn't enough of a reason you can see our top 5 reasons to start carbon cleaning here. For your vehicle, with regular servicing with our technology you will be able to:

  • Improve fuel economy
  • Reduce harmful carbon emissions
  • Reduce engine vibration
  • Increase the longevity and health of your vehicle's engine

The Huge Business Potential for workshops

Stats from RAC Foundation say that there were “38.8 million licensed vehicles in Great Britain at the end of September 2020”. Most of these combustion engines will experience carbon build-up and we can assure you that one of our Carbon Clean Machines will be able to perform a profession, in-depth service. We have 3 different carbon cleaner models to suit your workshop clients and business needs.

Commercial fleets are naturally very conscious about the running costs of their fleets as well as the environmental impacts of their operations, so it poses a perfect solution to their vehicle maintenance.

DPF problems to increase significantly in the coming months

Why are so many DPF problems occuring?

The lack of maintenance and servicing has become increasingly worrying throughout the automotive industry. Many UK drivers have admitted that they have not bothered to keep up the servicing and maintenance on their vehicles throughout the pandemic. As like many of us, we’ve hung the car keys up and got the bikes and comfortable walking shoes out. However, leaving vehicles without the proper servicing and usage will inevitably lead to issues and one of the main ones for Diesel vehicles is DPF problems.

Failed Regeneration in Diesel Particulate Filters

Changing driving patterns such as reduced usage, shorter car journeys and a lack of vehicle servicing are all factors which could contribute towards DPF blockages and malfunctions. The DPF automatically burns off most of the carbon residue when the engine is hot and can perform a DPF regeneration process. However, due to most Diesel owners only popping to the supermarket and back, the engine doesn’t get to perform this vital function.

Effects of Vehicle standstill
When vehicles are out of action for a long period of time, water and contaminants can enter the oil supply and result in sludge. This will generate more carbon, soot, and particulate matter (PM) to build up on major vehicle components. This kind of build-up is also likely to then lead to DPF’s becoming blocked and cause problems in other parts of the engine.

Many people throughout the UK are facing financial difficulties, therefore replacing their Disel Particulate Filter with a new manufacturer DPF for thousands of pounds is likely to be out of the question. However, there’s one other alternative which works out to be cheaper and in fact easier. Many workshop owners do not realise how easy it is to clean a DPF using our technology. It is, therefore, the perfect time for your workshop to invest in one of our DPF Cleaning Machines.
Our machines perform a professional deep clean of the DPF using high-pressure air and water, which you can see on this video >

Top 5 Causes of Carbon Build-Up

There still seems to be some confusion regarding the causes of carbon build-up amongst automotive engines, but in this short article, we explain the main factors.
As you may know, carbon build-up is a natural process in any combustion engine. Whether it be a passenger vehicle, petrol or diesel or a commercial fleet, carbon deposits will be present on various components of the engine.

Many vehicle owners notice the effects of carbon build-up such as the engine not running as smoothly, engine vibration, cold start misfires and most noticeably lower fuel economy.

But what causes the carbon to build-up?

1. Low quality fuel

When the fuel quality is low incomplete combustion occurs. Water is still produced, but carbon builds up in the engine causing driveability issues.

2. Too much stop/start travel

During peak times, traffic can really build-up causing a lot of stop/start travelling. This means more engine load leading to more excessive carbon build-up. In congested cities this means the DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) may not get a chance to regenerate leading to carbon building up in that part of the vehicle.

3. Lack of servicing / maintenance

Service plans are put in place for a reason. To ensure that potential issues with a vehicle are spotted early enough and also that the vehicle is maintained and kept roadworthy. Carbon tends to build-up on engines which do not frequently under-go servicing.

4. Continuous short journeys

According to a study, 1 in 3 people use their car for short journeys which could be completed on foot or by public transport. Continuously making short car journeys can lead to a build-up of carbon as more work is being done by the engine than needs be. This also affects our environment significantly as you can see in this article.

5. No Carbon Clean Service plan

Vehicle owners can be seen to completely disregard the need for carbon cleaning as they do not entirely understand the benefits it has on their vehicle. Therefore, many people do not have a regular carbon clean service which obviously accelerates the carbon-related issues for the driver! It's considerably simple to perform an engine carbon clean with our equipment and the results are impressive. Find out how carbon cleaning works here.

Why Commercial DPF Cleaning really works

We are pleased to announce that LB Commercial Vehicle Services are our newest commercial vehicle customer, who have invested in our state-of-the-art DCS-20 DPF Cleaning Machine. This equipment has the power to perform a professional, deep clean on any type of DPF but is specifically designed for heavy commercial use. With many additional features like ergonomic assisted winch, triple filtration system, heated drying mechanism and differential pressure print outs to name a few. This is the perfect model for commercial dpf cleaning with quick turnaround times to avoid down time, which is a key aspect for commercial vehicle owners.

LB services who specialise in commercial vehicle maintenance, noticed a huge growth in DPF related issues amongst commercial vehicles around the local area of Lutterworth. Therefore, they decided to offer DPF cleaning to increase workshop revenue and save their customers the expense of fitting new DPF’s also keeping vehicle downtime to a minimum.

We are pleased to say that the company can now professionally restore all DPF’s from passenger vehicles, to commercial fleets saving their customers time and expense but also maintaining healthy profit margins.

Why is the demand rising for Commercial DPF Cleaning?

Across the U.K there are a huge number of diesel vehicles and in the commercial sector, diesels account for 97% of the engines. All diesel particulate filters will get blocked at some point and this can cause many problems throughout the vehicle from engine malfunctions to poor fuel economy. These are all major factors that can negatively affect commercial fleets that operate on thin profit margins, and that is why our DPF technology has become very popular in recent years. Many workshop do not realise how to clean a DPF, but it's relatively straight forward with our innovative equipment!

By removing blockages in the Diesel Particulate Filter can offer huge benefits for commercial vehicles:

  • Improved fuel economy
  • More cost-effective to unblock a DPF
  • Less engine vibration
  • Better engine performance
  • Increases longevity of the commercial engine
  • Lower harmful emissions

Mark from LB Commercial Vehicle Services says

“We noticed a huge opportunity for DPF Cleaning services in Lutterworth, so we decided to invest in Carbon Clean's DCS-20 Commercial machine. We were looking specifically for a suitable DPF cleaning machine so we can provide this much-needed service to our customers. I really appreciated the on-site training and tips from Ben at Carbon Clean who answered all my questions on the installation day”.

Promoting Carbon Clean in Fabulous Las Vegas!

The USA has over 240,000 automotive garages and over 272 million vehicles on the road! That’s why our team visited one of the largest Auto shows in America, AAPEX, Las Vegas.

Our Engine Carbon Clean machines which are also referred to as Aqueous machines or HHO machines in the states, were very popular with more and more garages aware of the cutting edge process. Our USA team were showing distributors, industry sales reps and end-users about our unique Wet Cell technology which safely removes carbon from deep inside the combustion engine for passenger cars, to Freightliners and even motorboat engines!

On the other hand, our ultimate DPF machine, namely the DCS-20 enclosed cabinet system received a lot of attention from fleet owners. The haulage market is huge in the states and there are very few garages offering a professional, quick DPF restoration service. Our DCS-20 has many powerful features ideal to clearing upto 100% of the soot and ash build up thats very common in the Freightliner, buses and pickup trucks.

So if your fleet operator, then these machines can save you thousands of dollars in fuel costs, DPF restoration rather than replacements and lower servicing costs due to better engine performance/ reliability.
