Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaning
To understand diesel particulate filter cleaning, we must first understand what a diesel particulate filter is. A diesel particulate filter is a filter that is fitted to the exhaust system of most new diesel engine vehicles. This is done to improve / remove the emission of the soot particles between the engine and the atmosphere. It’s main aim is to get rid of a minimum of 80% of particle matter from diesel engines.
Just like any other type of filter, the diesel particulate filter becomes blocked at some point, mainly because of the amount of particles from the soot exhaust smoke that it is constantly filtering through. Normally the DPF is able to clean itself, by the design of the manufacturer, in order to maintain peak performance and extending its lifespan. However, there comes a time when the DPF is so blocked that the driver is notified by a warning light that the DPF system is unable to clean itself, and the services of professional DPF cleaners, such as us, must be called.
At Sandi Auto and Truck Repair Inc. we will come to you to pick up your D.P.F & D.O.C. within a 40 mile radius, and deliver it once the job has been completed. Not many companies will pick up and deliver, which is something our customers have found to be a great resource. When it comes to our DPF cleaning equipment we adhere to industry standards, and our DPF machine does an excellent job. Commercial customers and even the general public trust and recommend us because we provide the reliable service for cars, trucks, buses, and off road equipment at affordable rates, with the highest quality the industry has to offer.
Diesel Oxidation Catalyst Cleaning
A diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) is a device that breaks down the pollutants from a diesel engine in the exhaust stream by using a chemical process aimed at turning the pollutants into less harmful components. It tends to closely resemble an automobile’s catalyst converter. Like a Diesel particulate filter, the diesel oxidation catalyst will eventually become blocked as they do their job by capturing the harmful substances. The honeycomb holes that are in the catalyst converter are being filled by hydrocarbons and other substances. Once this happens you will need to take your diesel vehicle into our professionals to be cleaned to keep your vehicle on the road. When you see that warning light that indicates that your DPF or DOC needs to be cleaned, don’t hesitate to come to our shop or call in our professionals to come and get your filter, have it cleaned and returned and back on the road. We promise to provide you with quality diesel repair, semi truck repair, and diesel truck repair. Without routine cleaning of the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance for your D.P.F. and D.O.C., your fuel mileage will begin to deteriorate. Without the proper maintenance, your out of pocket costs for fuel will be higher. If you are amendment about maintaining the filters, you will spend less money on fuel for your vehicle. If you are unsure of your filters condition, stop by today and we will diagnose your problems.
