DPF Cleaning Qld was the first business in Qld to develop a process to save customers money, by cleaning diesel particulate filters instead of replacing them.
We developed the process and have been doing it the longest.
We started investigating how we could clean DPFs 8 years ago and over that time, by trialling numerous processes, we have found the only way to provide a service that delivers a totally clean and fully functional DPF unit that is free from internal damage and defects is to combine cleaning with deconstruction.
Our DPF cleaning technique involves deconstructing the DPF unit to expose the internals, then washing off all heavy and coarse carbon and ash. Then the unit is placed in our state-of-the-art DPF cleaning machine. We engaged a chemical engineer to work with us to formulate a chemical compound that will dissolve carbon and ash, without damaging the filter, oxygen catalysis or casing. This DPF cleaning process removes the fine carbon particles that have built up internally. After the cleaning process is complete we rinse out the remaining chemical, dry and flow test the unit. Following successful flow test results, the DPF unit is then reconstructed and ready for collection.
Flash cleaners do not detect internal DPF damage therefore may be ineffective.
Some DPFs take several hours to remove and refit so if the internals are damaged and not detected by inferior processes, that time and money is wasted.
We offer technical advice and after-sale support so that the DPF problem will not reoccur.
A blocked DPF is a symptom of a problem, it is not the cause of a problem. Make sure you have rectified the cause of your DPF becoming blocked before you send your DPF for cleaning, or you may find that the DPF may block again. Download our DPF blockage checklist to diagnose the problem.
