Paccar to use FSX DPF cleaning machine

RENTON, Wash. — Kenworth and Peterbilt dealers have chosen the FSX diesel particulate filter (DPF) cleaning machine to service their customers’ particulate filters.

They say the FSX machine gets DPFs at least 9% cleaner than other machines the companies looked at.

“We conducted extensive tests on three of the leading diesel particulate filter cleaning machines, including the FSX machine,” said Paccar Parts general marketing manager, Jeff Sass. “We found the FSX machine got filters 9% cleaner than the next best performing machine.”

The FSX cleaning machine cleans both ends and each cell of the filter, which can contain up to 6,000 individual cells. Paccar was particularly impressed by the filter’s TrapTester 7, an air flow test bench that tests a filter before and after cleaning to determing the extent of the ash build-up.

“Without the testing capability, it’s impossible for technicians to know how clean the filter is after a DPF cleaning. The air flow test allows them to determine if the filter is clean enough to re-install on the vehicle,” said Sass.

For details on pricing and scheduling, contact a Kenworth or Peterbilt dealer.
