Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaning
The baking processes takes 12 hours to complete, it slowly rises to a temperature of around 1100 degrees and then slowly cools down to a temperature that can be handled. After the DPF is done baking we move on to the actual cleaning of the DPF, which is done by hand in our Evacublast cabinet. The Evacublast cabinet has a vacuum inside of it to suck the ash that gets blown out and collect the ash into a filter not allowing the ash to get put back into the air. While cleaning the filters we are able to look at a mirror that is showing the operator of the machine the ash coming out of the filter and allows the operator to make sure the filter is getting completely clean. Unlike the automatic machines that just move in a random pattern over the filter, our machine allows the operator to focus on a spot if it needs a little extra attention. The Evacublast cabinet has a flow meter that shows us how clean the filter is getting on a scale of .5 to 5, we check every filter before we bake them to know the progress it has made to get it the cleanest we can. If you have any questions regarding our cleaning processes feel free to give us a call!
