Diesel Powered Exhaust Systems - Cleaning Explained

Fouled filters start with an initial backflow air restriction test.  When that baseline has been set the filter or part is rinsed to remove any exterior road grime or loose soot and ash.  It’s then into the patent pending custom designed Ultrasonic tank.  The filter is submersed in an environmentally friendly solution for a period of about an hour and a half where it is subjected to the cleaning action of the ultrasonic transducers.

The next step is to pull it from the solution, rinse it with filtered water to clear out the now loosened soot, ash and foulant.

The final stage is to place the filter in the Extractor unit.  This unit through the assistance of forced air and suction removes any of the final loose soot and ash particles that may still remain after it has been rinsed, this stage also provides warm airflow necessary to dry the filter for final testing.

When the filter is dry a final airflow test is completed to confirm its cleanliness by comparing this test against the pre clean test.
