You trust your engine to start your vehicle, your wheels to get you moving and your DPF filter to keep your air clean. But if you don’t pay attention to your DPF filter clamps, then you risk losing a lot more than a simple aftertreatment part.
Your filter plays an integral role in your vehicle. Keeping up on regular cleanings with DPF Alternatives will help it retain its peak potential, cut down on maintenance costs and reduce air pollution. And while the filter itself is a key component, DPF clamps are crucial to keeping it in place.
A DPF filter needs a tight seal to be effective. DPF clamps are pieces of metal that ensure the filter connects to the exhaust system and doesn’t wiggle loose. That way, the DPF works the way it is supposed to. The clamps also secure the filter when it’s being removed and being worked on. Looking for a replacement or cleaning for your DPF clamps? Don't look any further, DPF Alternatives experts are here for you and your vehicle.
Importance of DPF Clamps
That ring of metal is extremely important to the whole of the system. Without it, you don’t have your filter. And without your filter, you’ll be out of federal compliance – and will have to pay to replace the pricey filter.
A filter that isn’t correctly sealed can trigger error codes and warning lights that make it seem as if something is wrong with the DPF itself. If you ignore the signs, then you’re risking a breakdown. That can lead to up to $30,000 in repairs, in addition to lost time on the road. At DPF Alternatives, we just don’t clean your filters. While we do offer multiple tiers of restoration for your DPF, we also provide more comprehensive services for your diesel engine needs and can let you know if there is something wrong with your clamp – and replace it.
