Phillip Radiator Service is proud to offer cost effective Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) cleaning in the Canberra region.


To avoid costly replacement of the DPF


  • Clean soot and ash

  • Repair cracks and fatigue in the housing or flanges

  • Weld broken fittings

  • Replace stripped threads and nipples


A Diesel Particulate Filter is a component in the exhaust system of most modern diesel vehicles, that is designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of the diesel engine. Lowering the emissions of the vehicle and helping keep our air cleaner. DPF's can capture from 30% to greater than 95% of the harmful and polluting soot from the exhaust of diesel vehicles. 






































DPF's require more maintenance than catalytic converters (pertol vehicles DPF equivelant). Ash, a byproduct of oil consumption from normal diesel engine operation, builds up in the DPF as it cannot be converted into a gas and pass through the walls of the filter. This build up increases the pressure in the exhaust before the DPF. Warnings are given to the driver before DPF restriction becomes to great and causes an issue with vehicles performance or damage to the diesel engine or filter develop.



See the images below detailing how Phillip Radiators expertly clean a DPF.

Costly replacment or regular DPF maintenance was a necessity with modern hi-tech diesel engines. Due to our DPF cleaning service, this is no longer the case.
