Get Truly Clean DPFS

Affton Radiator Services proprietary cleaning process gets DPFs clean. Very clean. So clean that they’re restored to nearly 93% or better of their “new” condition. In contrast, most other service providers’ cleaning techniques only get DPFs 50-60% clean at best.

When it comes to your company’s bottom line, the difference between restoring your DPFs to “nearly new” versus to only “half as good as new” can be huge. Why? Because a dirty DPF reduces your fuel economy, costing you more with each mile driven. A dirty DPF also requires much more frequent regens, each of which takes your vehicle out of commission for up to 45 minutes at a time or more.

Diesel Particulate Filter FAQ

What is a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter)?

Diesel particulate filters are the emission control devices found on trucks, buses and heavy equipment that clean the exhaust emitted by their diesel engines. DPFs significantly reduce the emissions from diesel-fueled vehicles and equipment.

How often should you clean a DPF?

Ultimately every DPF will require regular cleaning. In fact, like any other preventative maintenance, regular DPF cleaning will save you money and prevent costly downtime. The recommended cleaning cycle is based on three factors (whichever comes first):

  • Time – Annually (12 Months)
  • Mileage – As low as every 60,000
  • Oil Consumption – Every 16 Quarts

Does Affton Radiator Services cleaning process remove all of this ash?

No. While Affton Radiator Service’s proprietary cleaning process gets DPFs as close to “new” or OEM condition as possible, a small percentage of the ash cannot be removed because it essentially becomes part of the filter’s walls.

What are the benefits of a regular DPF cleaning schedule?

  • Increased fuel economy
  • Less downtime
  • Fewer regenerations
  • Extended filter life
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Extended cleaning intervals
