How to easily Clean a Diesel Particulate Filter & Keep it Clean Longer – ECO Fuel Systems LLC
The Diesel Particulate Filter or DPF is where soot and ash is collect in your diesel emissions system. If you don't properly maintain it; it could cost you thousands of dollars in unscheduled downtime and repairs.
How much does it cost to clean a DPF Filter?
A Diesel Particulate Filter consists of a ceramic median with thousands of holes designed to trap the un-burnt fuel or ash. There are multiple ways to clean a DPF. The most common cleaning method until recently has been baking it, the cost +/-$500. Unfortunately the high temperatures needed often times damage a filter after 2-3 cleanings. Some use the pressure washer method; it may only get a filter 25%-30% clean and may damage it, if the pressure is too great. As stated a new DPF is costly.
Now comes Cobra Clean, a Biodegradable Non Toxic, Non Acidic liquid cleaner that melts the carbon ash trapped in a DPF 95%+. Cobra Clean was initially used to clean and maintain the shells of aircrafts. It was sprayed on a planes shell and the carbon and pollutants were easily washed off. Cobra Clean will not damage a DPF filter and is far less expensive. The cost is +$85.00 per cleaning.
Owner-operators, fleets, municipalities, and construction companies that want to clean their DPF's (DIY) in house should consider using Cobra Clean. It is simple to use; submerse a DPF for 24 hours; remove it, drain and rinse with tap water, dry and reinstall it and your back on the road.
