How a Clogged DPF Filter Negatively Affects Your Business

What savings can be had for cleaning your DPF filters?  First of all, let's start by understanding the basics.   What does a DPF do?  A DPF (diesel particulate filter) plays a critical role in cleaning diesel exhaust before it gets to the tailpipe, which reduces particulate matter (PM) emissions. The DPF collects and stores up to 98% of incombustible particles in the form of ash and soot as the fuel burns.   As the soot and ash start to accumulate, the engine starts a process of using extremely high temperatures to burn off the collected particles to regenerate the DPF. A process commonly known as Regeneration. This process requires incremental fuel use, which greatly decreases the overall fuel economy...

The DPF Company – A Professional Service for DPF Maintenance!

Regular DPF cleaning and maintenance is an essential step to keep your vehicle running smoothly.   Why Do DPFs Require Maintenance?   While DPFs are designed to be self-cleaning, several factors can prevent this process from working adequately. For example, city driving which means low-speed trips with stop-start traffic allows the dirt and soot particles to accumulate in the filter. Often, a vehicle that is only doing city driving will need to perform a forced regen on their vehicle to burn out the soot that has gathered in the DPF.   To better understand a DPF self-cleaning mechanism, think of it like an air filter or an oil filter on your vehicle - when you don’t clean them or replace...

DPF Aftertreatment Servicing

In 2007, diesel particulate filters (DPFs) were introduced for many medium and heavy-duty OEMs in the North American market. These filters were the optimal solution that the manufacturers came up with to meet the government-mandated emission standards.   Simply put, the diesel particulate filter physically captures the diesel particulate matter and soot preventing it from being released into the atmosphere. Over time, the filter will fill up with soot and the aftertreatment servicing for the diesel particulate filters have also become a necessary measure since then.   What Is a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)?   A diesel particulate filter can also be referred to as a soot trap, in simple words. Its primary purpose is to capture the soot before...
