DPF Sensors

As the world grows increasingly aware of the climate crisis and human involvement in it, environmentally friendly practices have taken a front seat for fleets nationwide. While minimizing environmental impact is no small task for truck fleets, taking care of your aftertreatment system and parts can help keep the air cleaner and maintain efficient fuel use.

Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) are one critical part of the aftertreatment system. DPFs are designed to reduce harmful emissions from diesel engines, thus reducing the amount of undesirable substances that make it to the air. DPFs work to clean the exhaust to make it less harmful to the environment. Learn the importance of monitoring DPFs using DPF sensors in your local area, CO.

What Are DPF Sensors?

DPF sensors help drivers and fleet managers better understand the status and performance of a vehicle’s DPF. These sensors communicate with the engine control unit (ECU) and continuously monitor the entire system of DPFs. Sensors are usually located both upstream and downstream of the DPF. There are three main types of sensors:

Differential pressure sensor

These sensors measure the pressure difference between the exhaust before and after it passes through the filter. This measurement lets drivers and owners quickly detect and address clogging and other filter issues.

Oxygen Sensor

The oxygen sensor monitors the oxygen content in the exhaust. This helps ensure that the DPF is effective in trapping particulate matter and that the combustion process runs as efficiently as possible.

Temperature Sensor

DPF temp sensors keep tabs on the exhaust temperature before and after it passes through the DPF.

Other sensors are in place to monitor things such as flow rate. Whenever a given metric falls outside the expected range, the sensors send signals to the ECU to inform the driver for immediate follow-up.

The Importance of Properly Maintaining
DPF Sensors in your local area, CO

While DPFs play a crucial role in protecting the environment and boosting fuel efficiency, their positive impact can only go so far if they are not properly monitored. There are many critical benefits of properly cleaning and maintaining sensors, including the following:

Reduction in emissions

Carefully monitoring the DPF is the best way to ensure that harmful emissions are not reaching the air. By regularly cleaning and replacing differential pressure, oxygen, and DPF temp sensors, fleet managers can ensure that they send accurate readings to the ECU.

Improved fuel efficiency

Sensors keep the filter up and running properly by quickly alerting drivers to soot buildup in the filter. In turn, the engine can perform at a higher level, and the vehicle can operate with increased fuel efficiency.

Increase in uptime

Keeping all sensors correctly up and running allows for timely issue identification and reduces the need for unscheduled maintenance. By remaining proactive about a balanced air-fuel mixture and combustion process and a well-functioning filter, fleets can avoid the unplanned downtime that results from emergency maintenance.

Filter cleaning is essential to any diesel truck and DPF Alternatives can do it for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, we have new aftermarket DPF’s for sale if yours is cracked, damaged or can not be restored.

The pricing range between these two options will be very significant. A new replacement DPF cost will depend on what kind of vehicle you have however it will most likely cost you thousands of dollars.

If the truck is doing multiple regens (4+ per week), there is a high chance your DOC needs replacing. If you notice your vehicle doing multiple regenerations in a short period of time, this usually means precious metals are no longer working.

Removing the DPF from your aftertreatment system can be a legal issue depending on where you are from. In some Canadian provinces, it is mandatory to have a DPF filter as a part of your aftertreatment system. Having your filters removed or “deleted” could lead to unexpected charges.

We offer and stock replacement parts for your aftertreatment system including DPF filters, clamps, gaskets, bungs and sensors.

Pricing for our products can be found on our website.
