DPF Cleaning Service

DPF Cleaning Service

Since the introduction of Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) in 2008, S&F Radiator has been at the forefront of DPF Cleaning technology.  With our multiple large ovens and experienced technicians, S&F Radiator has the capacity to handle any size DPF.  Avoid expensive downtime with next day service.

Oven Baked DPF Cleaning vs "Pulse Cleaning"

At S&F Radiator, we believe that the only way to effective clean a DPF is to bake them.  "Pulse Cleaning" is where a DPF is cleaned with a machine that pulses air through the cells.  While this certainly removes some soot, it does remove nearly as much as the combination of pulsing and baking.  Pulsing alone leads to more frequent DPF cleaning and consequently more downtime.  S&F Radiator has chosen to not offer "Pulse Cleaning" at all as we do not believe it is an adequate cleaning method and cannot charge for a service we do not believe in.

Automated VS Manual Pulsing

At S&F, all Diesel Particulate Filter Pulsing is done by our experienced technicians.  While automated pulsing technology is efficient from a time and labor savings perspective, we find that it often times misses particularly stubborn soot deposits.  Most automated systems spend an equal amount of time pulsing DPF cells that clear as on cells that are particularly clogged.  This leads to an incomplete pulse.  Our techs are trained to identify and focus on DPF "hotspots" where soot is particularly stubborn.  This ensures a thorough cleaning and maximum service life between cleaning cycles. 

 

DPF Fitting Repair

Our full service shop also has the capability to repair or replace damaged DPF Fittings.  We stock these hard to find fittings so you are not forced to purchase a new DPF or DOC because of a broken fitting.

SFR is so confident in the quality of our DPF Cleaning Service that we offer a 1 year limited warranty on all DPF Cleaning.  Warranty does not include DPFs that have clogged or failed due to Engine Malfunction such as Faulty Injector, Failed Turbo, Oil Soaked DPF, Exotherming or any other failure which results in a failed or clogged DPF.  Warranty on cleaned DPF shall be from date of original cleaning.
