What?s Involved in DPF Maintenance?
Although the DPF is designed for long life, eventually the accumulated ash must be removed by special cleaning equipment. What is the typical cycle for the DPF before it needs to be cleaned? "We?re looking at least 100,000 miles before having to worry about it," projects Aquaro. Engine manufacturer estimates range from 100,000-150,000 miles in most light- and medium-duty applications.
"The question then becomes do we clean (the DPF) or do we offer a DPF exchange program, replacing it all together?" poses Aquaro. The answer is manufacturer- and truck class-specific. Fleet managers should consult the manufacturer?s rep to determine the cleaning/replacement processes for specific trucks.
What costs should can be expected for DPF cleaning/replacement? Estimates range from several hundred dollars to $2,500 and more...
Cleaning, Replacement or whatever the DPF is a expensive piece of equipment.
