A specialised hand-held Diesel Particulate Filter diagnostics tool has been launched by EEC to meet the growing demand for DPF services in the aftermarket industry.
The unique and new-to-market EEC DPF Reset Tool allows garages to regenerate Diesel Particulate Filters, reset the EOLYS additive light, identify DPF fault codes and perform a filter replacement function and static regeneration – without needing assistance from a main dealer.
Simple to operate, the bespoke tool uses a push-button operation and supports vehicles from 2000 onwards.
The EEC DPF Reset Tool initially covers a substantial range of application numbers in the EEC range, and this will be quickly and greatly increased through updates that customers will be able to download from the EEC website.
Paul Clark, Managing Director, comments: “When talking to many different stakeholders in the aftermarket industry, we were staggered by the lack of DPF knowledge. We found that many garages regarded Diesel Particulate Filters as a main-dealer only product, that they are particularly complicated to install and that specialist diagnostic tools are always required.”
“The main dealers account for the majority of the DPF’s fitted and replaced within our market place. Garages do not usually understand that the DPF is a serviceable item, and there is often confusion surrounding diagnosing faults.”
“After months spent collating all the data required to deliver such a useful tool, we are immensely excited to see garages taking the opportunity to increase their service offering to customers, build their knowledge about DPF’s and help to increase profitability.”
The EEC DPF Reset Tool has been competitively priced to ensure that it is available for small factors and garages for a small initial outlay, and comes complete with a protective plastic case.
As the UK’s largest supplier of aftermarket catalytic converters, including an extensive and ever-growing range of Diesel Particulate Filters, EEC is committed to providing training and education within the aftermarket industry, helping technicians understand, evaluate and diagnose emission problems.
