The particulate filter is an item that we deemed very early on as being a headache for their owners. We weren't shocked when we started getting phone calls on them in the recent years as trucks began to fall out of warranty or be denied repair from dealerships. We did our research and came up with a solution that saves owners thousands of dollars, even going as far as creating custom gaskets and procedures that allow us to remove filters from light duty trucks. We are now proud to extend that offer to all of our customers.
Our goal is to make sure that your vehicle leaves with a filter well below minimum factory soot and air flow specifications. We do not simply use air or water to clean your filter, instead we have custom designed machines and practices that ensure you're getting the best service we can offer at a competitive price.
All filters are initially weighed, tested for air flow, and then examined for internal breakage.
An initial air cleaning is performed, this process allows us to remove non-impacted and loose soot prior to placing it in our machines overnight.
All filters are placed in our cleaning machines overnight. The machines will heat the filter up to 1400 degrees Fahrenheit. This process allows us to loosen impacted soot that is deep within the honeycomb of the filter.
A second air cleaning is performed to remove the now loosened soot.
A second inspection is performed to check the final weight, air flow, and any internal damages. At this point in the process we verify the minimum specifications from the factory, if the filter does not meet these specifications another cleaning is performed.

Most medium duty vehicles have a removable filter. The filter removal times can vary, but average in between 2-4 hours of labor depending on the manufacture.
Light duty diesel vehicles do not come from the factory with a removable filter. We can however remove these items ourselves and reweld them back into place. Time again varies by manufacture, but is usually within 2-4 hours as well.
The same process as the above, except we add custom designed flange plates and gaskets to your particulate filter. This allows the filter to become serviceable in the future.
