Diesel Particulate Filter or DPF for short, is a filter designed to remove particulate and soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine. All on-highway diesel engines sold as 2007 model or newer must have a Diesel Particulate Filter installed. Every highway truck that has a DPF installed also has regeneration light on the dashboard. If the truck is going faster than 20 mph when the filter gets full, the engine will do an automatic regeneration and burn off the collected particulate. What is left in the filter is a small amount of soot or ash.
A DPF is a filter and all filters eventually will clog. To avoid expensive DPF replacement costs you need to have your diesel particulate filter cleaned. Regular DPF cleaning extends the life of your filter and keeps your diesel engine running at peak performance power. The more ash collected in the filter, the less time required between regeneration intervals. As the diesel particulate filter becomes clogged, the diesel engine will begin losing power. Warning lights will alert the driver and if the driver does not get the filter cleaned the engine will shut off completely.
