Western Filters have invested in brand new machinery to offer, what they claim is, the only exhaust DPF cleaning Service in NSW. After each DPF clean, the owner of the truck will receive a report on the condition of the filter and ‘before and after’ flow tests.
A diesel particulate filter has thousands of small channels that are alternatively sealed. When working correctly, exhaust flow enters one channel and is forced to exit out of an adjacent channel. The filtering occurs as the flow passes through the wall.
DPFs require a regular service to remove unburned lube oil that has accumulated in the DPF. The material that is removed from the DPF during cleaning is considered hazardous waste and must be properly handled and disposed of in a safe and controlled environment.
