Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) require a regular service known as de-ashing or filter cleaning. This process is required to remove unburned lube oil that has accumulated in the DPF. The material that is removed from the DPF during cleaning is considered hazardous waste (link to ARB’s advisory on DPF cleaning: http://www.arb.ca.gov/diesel/tru/documents/ashguide.pdf), it must be handled and disposed of in a safe and controlled environment.
Cummins West’s success in installing DPFs over the past 10 years has led to a vast and unrivaled experience in DPF cleaning. Over 5,000 DPFs have come through our shops and been cleaned. Our experience has led us to the conclusion that not one technology or cleaning method can be applied to all DPFs. For that reason, we use multiple technologies and methods to ensure the DPFs we service get cleaned sufficiently and safely.
If you need a DPF cleaned, bring it to us. We offer:
In some cases, a DPF may not be able to be cleaned by one of our cleaning machines. In these cases the DPF needs to be sent to the manufacturer to be cleaned. When this is required, Cummins West has the processes in place to ensure your filter is returned to you as quickly as possible.
