Carbon Cleaning DPF/Regen - (Fleet Maintenance Service)

Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Regen is plight the plagues 2007 model tanker/trailers fleets owner. These heavy duty diesel engines (Mack, Volvo included) are fitted Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) to control dangerous emission to environment. As the world is getting environment conscious, it no surprise that these diesel engine manufacturers are playing their part.
Anyway, a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is a device designed to remove diesel particulate matter (DPM) or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine. As the exhaust gases pass through the filter, the filter captures enough of DPM that the exhaust from the exhaust pipe are relatively clean and safe for the environment.

Over time and as the engine runs, soot builds up in the filter walls and the filters must be regenerated through the process of oxidation on a regular basis. A warning light usually shows up indicating it is time to literally burn out the accumulated soot. The regeneration can is done manually on automatically by the engine.

It is necessary to perform a manual or automatic DPF regen regularly, failure to perform a regen will eventually lead to the engine derates, clogged filters and a need for service. And as a result of these regular manual or automatic regens the DPF must be cleaned out at periodic intervals to remove accumulated ash/carbon to avoid damage or a need remove DPF for cleaning; both of which can set fleet owners back a lot of money.

Carbon Cleaning

The DPF must be cleaned periodically s to remove accumulated ash, also often due to sulfated ash in the engine oil. To clean out carbon deposits that can create DPF/REGEN issues. The filter must also be cleaned if a fuel injector or turbo problem causes contamination with engine oil or non-combusted diesel. This contamination causes unacceptable back pressure. Cleaning methods include air blasting, the use of de-ionized water, and a vacuum-like system help to remove the excess carbon that leads to poor running issues.
