RENTON, Wash. — Participating Kenworth and Peterbilt dealers in Canada and the U.S. are including diesel particulate filter (DPF) cleaning services that utilizes the FSX Inc. cleaning machine.
The cleaning service offers truck operators superior results over those that use other machines, said Jeff Sass, general marketing manager for Paccar Parts.
The FSX machine cleans both ends and each cell of a DPF, which can have up to 6,000 individual cells. The FSX machine offers the greatest flexibility because it can clean filters from automobiles, off-road equipment and trucks, from light-duty all the way up to heavy-duty.
Over time and multiple cleanings, that additional 9 percent soot and ash will accumulate, leading to increased cost, downtime and quite possibly, engine failure, the company says.
“In our performance tests, we also found that after the first pass, the FSX machine cleaned a filter to acceptable air flow 23 percent more often than the next best performing machine,” he added.
For further details about the DPF cleaning service, including pricing and scheduling, contact a local Kenworth or Peterbilt dealer.
