DPF Cleaning Process

1. Test it – Visually inspect the filter for cracks and damage. Flow test the filter. Compare result to baseline data.

2. Blast It (Stage 1) – Removes soot and ash through Pneumatic process utilizing “Air Knife” technology.

3. Bake It (Stage 2) – Optional Thermal process for heavily soiled DPF’s not recovered effectively with Stage 1.

4. Track It – Repeat flow test. Compare results to baseline data. Review, record, and discuss re-test history/results.

The Pricing

Stage 1 – Pneumatic cleaning of DPF, utilizing the “air knife: FSX technology: test, clean retest after cleaning and document results. $300.00

H. L. Gage Sales, Inc. has a new DPF Cleaning System.

We have purchased the most advanced DPF Cleaning system available. Our new FSX DPF cleaner uses Air Knife technology to clean each cell of the DFP from both sides, compared to other technology that tries to clean all 5000 + cells at the same time.

Proper DPF cleaning at the recommended manufacturer intervals – and when indicated – will help your trucks run clean, run efficiently and save you money.

Here Are Some Facts

The Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) on all 2007 and later engines must be cleaned at proper intervals of 250,000* miles (400,000 km or 6,000 hours) or less depending on duty cycle and manufacturers’ recommendations.

Many 2007 and later engines also have an Aftertreatment Fuel Injector (AFI), or doser, that is part of the exhaust system. Manufacturers recommend cleaning this component at approximately 100,000 miles (161,000 km or 3,000 hours) to prevent premature ash build-up in the DPF

Left unchecked, soot and ash collected in a DPF can damage or destroy a filter-resulting in a DPF replacement cost of $3,000 or more and unwanted, unscheduled downtime.
