Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaning

3 Stage DPF Cleaning

We service all passive and active regenerative DPFs and all OEM-equipped, on-road, off-road and stationary DECS (Diesel Emission Control Strategies). We provide pickup and delivery, and in most cases a 24-hour turnaround. Service is provided by appointment or on a regularly-scheduled maintenance program that fits your needs.

a California Diesel Compliance company

On-site, mobile DPF cleaning is for multiple units and includes Stage One Cleaning (high-pressure air and vacuum) and Stage 3 Cleaning (vibration). The DPF Shop Blaster Vans are equipped with a 40 CFM compressor, on-board generator and our exclusive hands-on vibrating DPF Cleaning System. This exclusive cleaning system allows our highly-trained technicians to give special attention to your DPFs heavily soiled areas, for a truly clean filter, guaranteed!   

Stage Two cleaning is done using heat at one of our two Southern California locations. The filter is placed in a special chamber where it is baked to manufacturer's specifications. Our high-temperature baking chamber will hold up to 8 filters at one time.

PLEASE REMEMBER: Cleaning DPFs and other similar filters in an uncontrolled environment is extremely dangerous to one’s health. Simply removing the filter and blowing it in your shop will not properly clean it and could cause major equipment failures. The waste is extremely hazardous and should be treated as such.

The DPF Shop uses a 100 PSI air pistol and 420 CFM of vacuum along with our exclusive vibration system to ensure the cleanest filter. Every filter is weighed upon receipt and completion. Flow is checked with magnehelic gauge before and after cleaning service. Filters must be cleaned before we can check for existing cracks and/or damage. A cleaning charge will be assessed for cracked filters.

Warning Signs Your DPF Needs Cleaning:

Loss of Power
Visible Smoke from DPF-Equipped Truck
Residue at the Exhaust Tip

A high-quality cleaning cannot be achieved with an automated system as the cyclonic activity can concentrate ash in some areas that require more attention during the cleaning process.  This is why The DPF Shop’s process is so hands-on!

Our one of a kind GIANT DPF Cleaning Machine has a whopping 40x40 cleaning surface, combined with dual air cleaning nozzles. No filter is too big for us.
