DPF Cleaning Services
WHY CLEAN A DPF / CATALYST?
Improve Fuel Economy –
A clean diesel particulate filter helps your engine perform at peak and efficiency. Cleaning a DPF immediately demonstrated improvements in performance, fuel economy, miles travelled between regeneration, and an improved idle.
Avoid Replacement Costs and Extend Filter Life –
Regular cleaning helps extend the life of your diesel particulate filter, as soot and ash collected in a DPF can damage or destroy the filter. This can result in a DPF replacement costing anywhere from $3,000 – $8,000, and even worse, it can lead to unscheduled downtime
Reduce Downtime –
Over time, ash builds up lineally in the filter causing air flow restriction. This restriction generates exhaust back pressure. This pressure reduces engine efficiency requiring more fuel, more turbo boost and more power to perform the same work from the diesel powered equipment. A clean DPF will also reduce the time required for regeneration, as well as the wasted fuel costs during this idle period.
What is a DPF? –
A diesel particulate filter (DPF) is a device designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine. The honeycomb centre is designed to trap the particles of soot which have not been burned off or cleared by an additive.

Removal of the DPF or using a delete pipe carries great risks. These include EPA fines, voiding of insurance policies in the event of an accident, as well as engine shutdown due to the ECU malfunction. The ECU will assume the DPF requires regeneration causing large clouds of unburnt or partially burnt diesel. It is against the law to remove or modify the DPF on any vehicle in Australia.
