Shop Talk: Diesel Particulate Filters

Posted by Wyoming Machinery Company Marketing on Jul 10, 2017 2:57:00 PM

We can give you good clean savings.

Did you know it can cost thousands of dollars to replace a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) with a new one? Instead, save your money by having your DPF cleaned routinely rather than replacing it.  

When your machine sends you a level three fault code, it’s indicating to you that it is time to manually clean your DPF. Failure to do so could result in the need to replace your DPF altogether, costing you time and money.

Bring your truck, machine, or DPF into one of our certified 5 Star contamination controlled facilities, and our technicians will have your filters cleaned and reinstalled quickly and efficiently. Our DPF Cleaning Tool maximizes time between cleanings and helps to ensure the engine emissions control system will meet the EPA ash service interval requirements.
 
Not using a Cat DPF? Not a problem. We clean all brands and sizes of Diesel Particulate Filters and can install them for you in-house or have them shipped back to your shop. 
 
Ask your PSSR about our drop box locations for your business’s convenience.

Emissions Compliance—
 
Being compliant with the EPA’s Diesel Emission Regulations is crucial in the working world today. Because a DPF is designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust of your engine, keeping your DPF clean and functional should rate as a high priority in your working environment. Failing to maintain your DPF functionality allows for soot to build up, shortening your machine or on-highway truck’s life and performance.

Once a DPF has been neglected or maxed out, a new filter must be installed costing upwards of $5,000. Proper care and maintenance of a DPF can cost as little as a few hundred dollars, depending on its condition.
 
Wyoming Machinery Company has three store locations with capabilities to thoroughly clean and protect your DPF, keeping your machine or on-highway truck in emissions compliance. These locations include Rock Springs, Casper, and Cheyenne.
