WARRENVILLE, Ill. — Navistar Parts is now offering the FSX diesel particulate filter (DPF) cleaning machine as part of its product line.
The DPF cleaner can be ordered through an International dealer, the company announced. The FSX cleaning machine has established itself as one of the best available.
“When the 2007 emissions requirements were enacted, virtually every diesel truck on the road had to install a diesel particulate filter,” said Andrew Zielinski, product director, green for Navistar Parts. “Three years later, these filters are beginning to need regular cleaning to help keep them working efficiently.”
The FSX machine uses air knife technology on the inlet and outlet sides of the DPF filter to ensure proper cleaning and longer duty cycles. International dealers will be offering the cleaning service using the FSX machine and also selling the machines to fleets that prefer to do their DPF cleaning in-house.
“Our extensive dealer network is able to offer customers an opportunity to purchase this new preventive maintenance tool for DPF filters – just as vehicles are beginning to need to clean their filters,” said Zielinski. “Participating dealers who are equipped with a DPF cleaning system are beginning to offer filter cleaning as a service to their customers.”
