Diesel Particulate Filters

In-house Diesel Particulate filter cleaning service

Changing Donaldson Filters

Beginning on January 1, 2007, a diesel particulate filter is a required component for all new diesel engines. The diesel particulate filter is a critical component of the exhaust system which has become more complex over time. Proper maintenance is required at specific intervals to keep the diesel particulate filter functioning properly so it can reduce the Nitrous Oxide and ash also known as soot particulates associated with combustion of diesel fuel out of the atmosphere. The most common maintenance is to have the diesel particulate filter cleaned. If not properly cleaned at regular intervals, the honeycomb chamber design will eventually become clogged to the point that it will require a complete replacement of the diesel particulate filter which can be very expensive.

The maintenance interval depends upon the service cycle of the engine. Engines that run at a constant speed for long periods of time will require less diesel particulate filter maintenance than those that operate in more stop and go or long periods of idling time.


To properly clean a diesel particulate filter requires a lot more than just a quick blast of air or a few light taps to dislodge the accumulated ash deposits. If not done properly, the diesel particulate substrate can be easily damaged, rendering it useless and resulting in the purchase of a replacement.
