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.

Heavy and medium duty vehicles are designed with removable filters. This makes it a quick and easy process to remove them averaging 2-4 hours in total depending on manufacture.
Light duty and smaller applications do not come with a serviceable filter. As such we have to manually remove the filter and then in some cases remove the element or heat shielding. Removal times will vary by manufacture.
In addition to removing and servicing light duty filters, we also offer the option to install flange plates. This allows the filter to be unbolted and removed just as easily as a heavy duty filter. This extends the usage of your filter dramatically and reduces the cost for removal and re-installation.
