What Makes Our DPF Filter Cleaning Method Superior?
Just like your tires and engine, your diesel particulate filter (also known as your DPF), is crucial to keeping your vehicle running. And, like the other components that keep your rig going, it needs regular upkeep with DPF filter cleaning.
This is how it works: the DPF traps soot expelled by your engine before it can be released into the air. The gadget is more commonly referred to as a “soot trap.” The device is a sponge-like piece of equipment that captures those particles and hits them with high temperatures to transform the soot into ash. That ash then remains on the filter. It’s a great tool that helps keep the air safe to breathe, but ignoring regular maintenance can be disastrous.
A dirty filter lowers your gas mileage, causes dark smoke to come from your vehicle and potentially leads to a breakdown. Instead of spending thousands of dollars on a new filter — and much, much more on a new engine — it is both easier and less expensive to have your filter regularly cleaned by a professional.
