Quality Maintenance For Diesel Engines

DPF Cleaning

A DPF (diesel particulate filter) is designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine and prevent particles from being released into the atmosphere. Viking Mechanical and Dieseltec QLD are one of the very few companies in Queensland that operates a DPF and catalyst cleaning machine. The cleaning process uses the patented European technology and machinery that guarantees the complete removal of PM (particulate matter), cerium and oil deposits without damaging the filter.

We’re here to protect the environment from the harmful contaminants created by the diesel exhaust system. This filtering and cleaning process is part of every responsible diesel motorists job as an owner. We’ll take your diesel exhaust gas from contaminated and hazardous to cleaner and greener as we apply our effective DPF or catalyst cleaning process. Every diesel engine throughout this area needs our exclusive DPF cleaning equipment to ensure its safe operation and protection of the environment.

Clean Your Diesel Particulate Filters & Catalyst

As with any filter, its job is to “filter” or trap pollutants, and your DPF needs to be cleaned regularly to ensure your vehicle performs at its best. The DPF clean will do wonders for your diesel’s efficiency and its overall performance.

Our exclusive filtering equipment protects the environment from harmful toxins or any particles from being released into the atmosphere. Avoid costly repairs by staying on top of the DPF’s condition.

Your DPF should be cleaned every 100 to 200 000 kilometres (or less for more severe service applications). The following are a few of the benefits to your next DPF Cleaning:

  • Avoid replacement costs and extend filter life – Regular cleaning helps extend the life of your filter as soot and ash collected in the DPF can damage or destroy it.
  • Improve fuel economy – A clean DPF helps your engine perform at peak power and efficiency.
  • Reduces downtime – Over time, ash builds up in the filter causing air flow restriction. This reduces engine efficiency requiring more fuel, more turbo boost and more power, leading to additional maintenance costs over time.

Removal of the DPF or using a delete pipe carries great risks. These include EPA fines, voiding of insurance policies in the event of an accident, as well as engine shutdown due to the ECU malfunction. The ECU will assume the DPF requires regeneration causing large clouds of unburnt or partially burnt diesel. It is against the law to remove or modify the DPF on any vehicle in Australia.
