DPF & DOC Cleaning

How We Are Different

Until recently, if you wanted to get a DPF “cleaned” and installed back in a vehicle the same day, you had to sacrifice quality of cleaning. If you wanted the filter to operate within OE specs, it was a 24 to 48 hour turnaround time. Depending on the degree to which your DPF is clogged we may be able to turn it around in as little as two hours! We also have a complete line of gaskets and clamps to complete the job.
Not with Chatham Radiator’s DPF cleaning service!


Ignoring your DPF will result in unexpected replacement costs…

Not only for your DPF/DOC but parts upstream as well. Your DPF serves as a garbage can for your exhaust system. The ash captured within the filter must physically be removed, which requires it to be taken off the truck and properly cleaned. Without doing this on a regular basis, you are gambling with mechanical failure and lost revenues.


My Truck Will Notify Me When It’s Time

Waiting until the dashboard light illuminates to clean your DPF/DOC is a strategy that has consequences. Sitting on the roadside waiting for a tow is a common outcome that increases unit downtime, but the issues go far past that. Once contamination hits 50% or more you begin to lose fuel efficiency and by the time your service light comes on, fuel efficiency drops by 10% or more!


Get Ahead of the Problem!

Scheduled maintenance for your DPF/DOC is the best way to ensure your truck is operating at the lowest cost per mile. Not only is your truck operating at the OE supplier spec, but you are addressing unnecessary part failures for less time than it takes to perform a PM.

  • Less Downtime
  • Better Fuel Economy
  • Reduced System Wear
  • Improved Emissions Quality

Other Technologies Simply Can’t Compete!

Poor DPF/DOC maintenance will lead to loss of fuel economy, lower engine performance, and ultimately costly repairs. To maximize the performance, proper DPF cleaning must be part of your preventative maintenance program. It’s also important to realize that not all cleaning methods are equal and taking short cuts will result in shorter cleaning intervals and performance issues.

Our 9-Step Process

Other Technologies Simply can’t Compete!

Until recently, if you wanted to get a DPF “cleaned” and installed back in a vehicle the same day you had to sacrifice quality of cleaning. And if you wanted the filter to be cleaned and operate within OE specs it was a 24 to 48 hour turnaround time.
Well, that was the case until now!

Aqueous DPF Cleaning Equipment by EcoClean revolutionizes the timetable to properly maintain filters. Our system allows you to properly clean and dry a contaminated DPF in two-hours or less*. Our treated water & surfactant stream maneuver around the complicated cell structure of a DPF, removing and recovering debris found inside the filter. Our non-destructive cleaning process helps prolong the life of the filter while restoring it to OEM operating specs.

*Two-hour turn-around on DPF cleaning is possible depending on the physical condition of the filter and if the cleaning is part of “preventive maintenance” on the filter versus a filter that is completely clogged

Inspect & Document

During this first stage we carefully examine your DPF, checking for damage and defects. We also check its contamination level and we document our findings.

Soak, Clean & Rinse

This 5-step stage is where we pre-soak, flush and final soak to loosen debris and ash. Then we deep clean in our in our proprietary machines before a final rinse.


Using our proprietary EcoClean drying cabinet, we vaporize and remove all remaining moisture introduced in the cleaning stages.

Final Inspection & Prep

During these final two steps we carefully re-evaluate your DPF to ensure that it has been returned to its OE performance specs prior to prepping it for return to the customer.
