DPF Filter Cleaning vs DPF Regeneration

Contrary to what you might think, DPF regeneration is a far different DPF Filter cleaning. During filter regeneration, the filter removes diesel particulate matter from the exhaust gas and burns them off. And because this process usually happens when your vehicle runs above 40 mph, you may consider it as automatic DPF Filter cleaning. But, this is not true. In fact, frequent regeneration may damage your diesel engine over time.

Why DPF Filter Cleaning on a Regular Basis is Important?

DPF manufacturers highly recommend diesel particulate filter cleaning on regular basis.“Regular” here depends how frequent you use your diesel machine. During normal use, your filter will become saturated which causes frequent regeneration. This eventually can increase fuel consumption and damage to your engine. It should be noted here that Repair of DPF exhaust system is more expensive than DPF Filter cleaning.

Below is a brief summary of procedures explaining how we do it?

1. Pin Depth Test – Serves as our first DPF pre-cleaning process. This is to check if there is any debris or crack on your DPF before we clean it.

2. Vacuum Pressure Test – Besides vacuum test, we also perform the Light Test. A light seen inside your DPF tells us that your unit has a crack and needs to be repaired.

3. Filter Weight Test – This is where we determine how many grams of debris your DPF has. We record the weight for reference purposes.

4. Filter Blasting – Serves as the last part of DPF pre-cleaning process. Here, we place your DPF in our DPF cleaning chamber and carefully blast out all the debris inside.

5. Oven Heating – Your DPF is being baked overnight at 1112 degrees. To clean as many DPF units as possible, we have 4 different ovens for 4 different sizes of DPF: small, medium, large and extra large .

The next day, we repeat the same procedures except that they are done in reverse order. We perform Filter Blasting again to make sure that no debris is left inside your DPF. Doing Filter Weight Test again tells us how many grams of debris we have removed from your DPF. After performing Vacuum Pressure Test for the second time, we do Pin Depth Test once more to make sure your DPF was not damaged during the entire cleaning process.
