Call R and M Diesel of Arkansas Click to Call Us: 870-941-6160 for information about our Mobile Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaning Services.
The Diesel Particulate Filter is installed in the exhaust stream in all diesel engines made after January 1, 2007. The DPF has two chambers. The first chamber oxidizes NO gas in the exhaust to NO2. The second chamber burns the soot trapped inside. The result leaves a small amount of ash in the filter. This ash builds up and reduces the effectiveness of the DPF which must be cleaned off the truck.
DPFs on 2007 and up OEM Truck recommend intervals of approx. 200,000 miles for highway applications. Severe service vehicles with high idle times and little on highway driving may need to be cleaned in as little as 75,000 miles. Click here to view a list of OEM recommended DPF cleaning intervals.
