Donaldson Develops Two-Stage DPF Muffler Cleaning System
Truck maintenance facilities can now purchase an efficient and cost-effective diesel particulate filter (DPF) cleaning system from Donaldson Co., a leading manufacturer of filter systems and replacement parts.
Compliance with the 2007 heavy-duty diesel engine emissions regulations has increased the use of DPF mufflers on on-highway trucks. DPFs capture the ash and soot generated during the diesel combustion cycle and continuously combust the soot leaving the ash to be dealt with.
Consequently, these DPFs will need to be cleaned periodically through their life cycle. The Donaldson Pulse Cleaner is a self-contained system that dislodges diesel ash and soot from the DPF. The removed ash and soot are captured in a serviceable filter located in the lower portion of the system's cabinet for easy removal.
The average cleaning cycle is 15 minutes or less, depending on the level of contamination. For extremely plugged filters that require a more intense cleaning process, Donaldson offers the DPF Thermal Regenerator, a specially-designed unit that removes hydrocarbons and unburned soot through a timed heating and cooling cycle.
Donaldson's two-stage DPF cleaning system simplifies the routine cleaning, making it ideal for maintenance facilities responsible for servicing trucks equipped with diesel particulate filters.
