KNOW THE FACTS ABOUT DPF CLEANING!
Proper Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) cleaning at the recommended manufacturer intervals -and when indicated -will help your trucks run clean, run efficiently and save you money.
FACT: The Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) on all 2007 and later International engines must be cleaned at proper intervals of 250,000* miles (400,000 km or 6,000 hours) or less depending on duty cycle. DPF's on a Cummins engine should be cleaned at proper intervals of 200,000* miles (320,000 km).
FACT: Many 2007 and later engines also have an After-treatment Fuel Injector (AFI), or doser, that is part of the exhaust system. Manufacturers recommend cleaning this component at approximately 100,000 miles (161,000 km or 3,000 hours) to prevent premature ash build-up in the DPF.
FACT: Left unchecked, soot and ash collected in a DPF can damage or destroy a filter resulting in a DPF replacement cost of $3,000 or more and unwanted, unscheduled downtime.
FACT: Our specialized equipment can thoroughly clean a DPF, restoring the engine to full power and efficiency.
FACT: DPF cleaning services are available for all-makes trucks and heavy equipment at East Coast International Trucks, Inc., Moncton, NB, and can be provided conveniently while your vehicle is in for service.
