Introducing Ford’s DPF for F250 F350 F450 Super Duty

Did you know that Ford’s not only famous in producing amazing and high-performance luxurious vehicles but as well as best-class technology for Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF)?

Yes, you read that right! Ford Motor Company is a global brand based in Dearborn, Michigan. The company designs, manufactures, markets, and services a full line of Ford cars, trucks, SUVs, electrified vehicles, and is pursuing leadership positions in electrification, autonomous vehicles, and mobility solutions. 

It’s no wonder that over the years of continuous auto demands, Ford lived up to its promises of providing relevant, authentic, responsive auto solutions to every vehicle owner today.

While you are here to get into details of one of the best selling diesel particulate matter in the US, and in the world, then let’s see how Ford’s DPF for F250, F350, and F450 can give you the exact horsepower you need.

The Ford Superduty DPF Technology

Ford is the best in engineering and technology in the US. And for years of service in the industry, that has always remained true. With continuous innovation and consistent development, Ford has able to help people build, enjoy and live life. Whether you need a vehicle for your adventures, for your leisures, for luxury and for your business— they always have one.

With that, Ford of Europe has increased their availability of Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) systems across its best-selling carlines—including retrofit systems for the majority of diesel-powered Ford vehicles already in service.

Ford already offers diesel particulate filter (DPF) systems on the new Ford Focus and Focus C-MAX models. A DPF is now standard equipment for Ford’s Duratorq 1.6-liter 80 kW (108 hp) TDCi engine, and optional on the 2.0-litre 100 kW (134 hp) variant. And also includes amazing DPF features on the Ford f-250, f-350, and f-450 super duty models.

The key issue with DPF systems is regeneration. With Ford’s current DPF systems, their DPF models most likely rely on the use of a cerium-based fuel additive to enable diesel particulates to oxidize at relatively low temperatures in the filter. Which none of the other brands can author nor copy.

Moreover, their system relies on the filter’s natural regenerative capabilities under the heat of higher load conditions.

How Does a Ford DPF Works?

Upon entering the DPF, this is how actually it works down there:


(1) The exhaust gases are directed through the silicon carbide core 

(2) Before being allowed to continue through the exhaust system.

(3) The construction of the core offers a large surface area to the passing exhaust gases, giving a plentiful storage volume for collected soot.

(4) The soot volumes are monitored at all times by pressure and temperature sensors which feed information to the engine management system to determine when the filter requires regeneration.

(6) When the soot levels have reached their allowed limit, the regeneration process is initiated.

(7) By then, the exhaust gas temperature is raised to 600°C, by multiple fuel injections, in order to burn off the soot particles.

The Ford F-250, F-350, F-450 Features

Ford Super Duty continues to offer an expanded line of more-powerful engines. Recently, they launched for 2020 an all-new pushrod 7.3L gas V8 delivers durability and performance for strenuous everyday jobs. This also includes the next-generation Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel which is said to stronger than ever. 

However, this does not outweigh the horsepower performance of Ford’s F-250, F-350 and F-450. Just like they say, the classic always holds more power— and never gets old.


Twice the Power

It is no surprise that Super Duty has always been a tough monster since. Not only that it complements well on every vehicle, but it also improved upon its already top-rated performance with an expanded line of Ford engines. 

Although, it can fit perfectly on any vehicle, pairing it with a Ford f-250 trucks gives it double power for a major road and duty performance.


Advanced Fuel Capability

Ford’s Compressed natural gas (CNG) and propane autogas are advanced fuel options to unleaded gasoline with the CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine Prep Package.

What’s more, the CNG/Propane Ford Power Diesel Package with the addition of the necessary upfits for bi-fuel capability enables these lines of DPF to run on either liquefied propane gas or unleaded gas. 


Diesel Engine Exhaust Braking

Turbo Diesel incorporates a driver-activated engine-exhaust brake. It restricts the turbocharger’s exhaust flow to generate back pressure and slow the vehicle, providing greater control while traveling downhill, regardless of vehicle load or road grade. Also, because the engine brake helps minimize having to apply pedal pressure, brake fade and lining wear are reduced, lowering the cost of maintenance. 

Three settings are also available: On, Off and Auto. The Auto setting modulates engine braking as needed to help maintain the speed you want based on accelerator and brake pedal use. 


Operator-Commanded Regeneration with Active Inhibit

Some operating conditions, such as long idling, don’t generate enough engine heat for the diesel to automatically burn off the soot in the diesel particulate filter. 

That’s where available Operator-Commanded Regeneration with Active Inhibit (diesel only) comes in. When the warning light comes on, pushing the activation button raises the exhaust temperature to burn off the soot, after which the exhaust temperature reverts to normal. 

The active inhibit feature allows a delay of regeneration when the vehicle is sitting over combustible materials, such as dry leaves or grass. Once in a safe place, the driver can manually start the regeneration process. Recommended for commercial applications.
