Our Cleaning Process

We start your DPF cleaning process with an initial diagnosis. Unless your DPF is internally damaged, our patented cleaning service is a virtually 100% successful process in restoring your DPF back to full health. This revolutionary technology avoids the need to perform cutting, ovenbaking or welding. Each filter completes a thorough pre-clean inspection checking structural integrity of the filter core for signs of cracking, hot spots, melting and cell damage to ensure it is serviceable and will have a long lifespan – if it fails our pre-clean testing processes we can supply a new aftermarket unit where possible. We can clean any shape and size DPF guaranteed.

  1. Your blocked DPF is removed and sent to Australian DPF Centre (we can also arrange the removal and refitment service if required)
  2. DPF is endoscope inspected for internal damage and pre-clean photographs taken
  3. Back-pressure test is carried out to check the blockage level
  4. DPF placed into patented cleaning machine to fully remove all the soot and ash
  5. A further back pressure test is carried out to confirm flow and success of the advanced cleaning process
  6. The DPF is re-inspected with an endoscope and post-clean photographs taken
  7. The DPF clean is certified and signed off with a 12-month warranty
  8. Customer is advised and payment is made on completion
  9. DPF is returned to customer
  10. Your mechanic will then re-install the DPF into the vehicle, then carry out diagnostic and resetting routines (we can arrange this for you if required)

Is DPF Cleaning really worth it?

A DPF filter can become blocked over time. Potential causes could include a faulty sensor, incorrect engine oil, a failing turbo or most commonly the vehicle has undertaken too many short journeys where the filter’s regeneration processes has not been initiated. At first you may be alerted to an engine failure warning light and if ignored, the engine could switch to ‘limp’ mode. At this stage the vehicle will only allow you to drive very slowly with the intention that you’re to take the car either home or to your nearest garage for inspection and repair. If the DPF filter is blocked beyond repair then a new DPF filter can cost thousands of dollars, with premium cars costing upwards of $3500 ultimately wiping out any of the savings associated with owning a diesel engine over a petrol version. Regular cleaning of the DPF can maintain and significantly prolong the life of your filter and ensure you may never have to fork out a hefty sum to replace it. In the short term, a DPF clean can increase your vehicles power output, increasing speed, acceleration and responsiveness. As well as this, you can often expect a boosted fuel efficiency – the potential fuel savings could cover the cost of the clean over time! In addition to this, a clean will continue to serve its purpose which is to reduce harmful emissions, reduce engine noise and resolve RWC emissions failures. – That’s right, a blocked filter could easily lead to a failed RWC.

Increased Performance

The back pressure caused by a blocked DPF can drastically reduce performance. A clear DPF aids engine responsiveness and power.

Detailed Diagnostics

Most drivers will see an improvement in fuel consumption thanks to a clear DPF. In some cases the fuel savings could exceed the cleaning cost.

Increased Fuel Economy

Our engineers will perform a detailed diagnostic check to ensure your DPF is running efficiently and notify you of any other potential warnings.

Extended Filter Life

By maintaining your current DPF you can dramatically improve it’s lifespan and ultimately prevent the need for a costly replacement filter.

Car Types

What vehicles have a DPF filter?

In November 2016, Australia adopted the Euro 5 emissions standards for diesel vehicles. All diesel engines are now required to be fitted with a DPF in the exhaust to stop harmful soot passing into the atmosphere. These Diesel Particulate Filters are either built into modern vehicles or retro fitted in older ones. If you’re unsure whether your vehicle has a DPF filter or not please get in touch and we’ll be happy to confirm based on the make, model or registration.


DID YOU KNOW? Your vehicle can fail a RWC if your DPF filter is not functioning properly!

Please note: Petrol engine vehicles do not use Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs).
