DPF Cleaning

The diesel particulate filter (DPF) traps soot, ash and other particulates as an exhaust after-treatment. From there, these particles are burned also known as regeneration. What’s left behind after regeneration is called ash. The ash must be manually removed to prevent DPF clogging. The DPF is crucial for reducing black smoke in the exhaust to comply with EPA standards and thorough maintenance of this part is necessary. Without proper maintenance, the equipment can experience unscheduled downtime and expensive repairs.

Carolina Cat® offers DPF cleaning to keep your equipment running and reduce unscheduled downtime. Read more for information about our DPF cleaning service, and contact us to set your cleaning up today.

When to Schedule a DPF Cleaning

Regularly cleaning your DPF is crucial for the integrity of the filter and the vehicle. DPF maintenance intervals vary per engine family, please refer to manufacturing guides on recommended intervals. If you notice any of these signs, you need to schedule a DPF cleaning right away:

  • The engine is losing power: The filter may have too many particulates, which applies backpressure to the engine and compromises its power output.
  • Regeneration frequency: The filter could be storing excessive ash causing the system to regenerate more frequently than normal
  • The exhaust smoke is blue: There are too many hydrocarbons coming through the filter.
  • The exhaust smoke is black: The filter may have sustained physical damage.

Why Clean Your DPF?

While the engine is running, the filter is collecting particulates. In optimal exhaust conditions, these particulates are burned off to clean the filter in a process called regeneration. What’s left behind after the regeneration process is called ash. Ash cannot be regenerated out of the filter and will build up causing exhaust restrictions. Ash must be removed using a manual cleaning process. Ash is made up of many harmful elements that could compromise your health. DPF cleaning process will remove all ash from the filter and restore its original effectivity.

Carolina Cat will make sure your DPF cleaning is done to perfection to give you all of these advantages and bring valuable productivity to your business.
