Servicing DPF

I was visiting with a friend that has a mechanics shop and he is into Ford diesels. He was telling me one of his reps told him about a kit that is close to being available to the public that is designed to service the DPF while still installed on the truck. You remove the sensors and use various specifically designed tubes and chemicals to access the areas inside the DPF. Once done, start the truck up and the unit is cleaned out and you are good to go for another 100K miles along with the normal cleaning cycles we are used to. The down side is the cost was close to $1,000 but that is less than a new unit. Of course, this wouldn't apply if you were going to delete.

Anyone have more info?

Sounds like a reasonable method to "clean" the DPF. I'm doubtful with the truck not throwing codes since you remove the sensors and have to run the truck.
I'd bet they are injecting some serious chemicals into the system, burning off as much as possible, and giving it an OK bill of health. How much is a brand new SCR/DPF system??

I was quoted "around $4k" by my local ford dealer for parts only for a new torpedo.

I decided to keep running mine and deal with its quirks with that news...

Ford Parts has it listed for $4,100.

Not sure about this new product. There are products in EU that sound similar to what your describing. I would love to see this product hopefully it is at SEMA this year!

The 6.7 filters are hard to come by right now. There has not been any replacement ones come available to my knowledge. The ones for 6.4 powerstroke are great and we even have service kits so you can clean the DPF yourself! Back to the 6.7 we are working on a solution for this currently. $4000 is insane price for this item, are you having issues with yours?

I'm sure burning Varsol and jet fuel is great for the air quality. Good thing we have DPF to keep the air clean

It sounds good and all, but to me it sounds like a "oh don't forget to fill your blinker fluid" scam. $1000 bucks is pricey to "clean" it, and who's to say it will work? Then guess what, you're out $1k, and will have to shell out the $4k for a new one. I'm sure every truck will be different, some DPF's will be in better shape than others will be, but still a lot of cash to gamble to see if it will work.

How are YOU going to know IF it got serviced? Sounds like they'll take it out back and do a static regen for ya.....

Seems like a good way to make $1k....

We would remove the dpf systems on the big rigs and use a super high heat pressure washer with some cleaning chemicals. Seemed to do the trick with no failures or issues in 100k plus etc. There is a company in CA that came to the caterpillar dealer every now and then and it was like a pressurized parts washer tank that took an hour to heat/pressure/clean the dpfs. It worked very well. I found this place: https://www.clarkstruckcenter.com/dpf-cleaning/

but again the other company had like a heated parts washer with all these solvents and heat and it worked great.

Well I can say when "DPF service" is complete, there's no more "DEF in the tank". I can do "static regens" myself.
