HGV DPF Cleaning – Lorry and Truck

Excalibre Tech provide DPF Cleaning for HGV and Refuse Collection Vehicles (RCV). We have invested in high technology DPF cleaning and test equipment to ensure your vehicles operate at an optimum. The FSX cleaning centre is identical to that used by all of the major engine OEM’s. The cleaning process, testing and reporting is to the same standard.

What is the DPF and why does it need cleaning?

Your diesel particulate filter (DPF) captures and stores exhaust soot to reduce emissions and makes your vehicles run more cost-efficiently and with less emissions. While driving, ash accumulates in the DPF and needs to be removed to minimise exhaust back pressure. Low load operation can also cause the DPF to become blocked with soot that cannot be removed by the active regen system.
