EcoClean Advantage, LLC announces the launch of its liquid-based diesel particulate filter (DPF) cleaning machine that restores a DPF to like-new condition in under one hour. The automated, computer-guided cleaning process requires less than five minutes of hands-on operator time per filter. The patent-pending machine uses a proprietary biodegradable cleaning agent, filters and reuses water, and separates soot and ash for recycling.
The EcoClean machine (model LHF1002) can be ordered now, starting at $43,500 with a leasing option available, and will be on display during the 2017 Great American Trucking Show in booth #11020 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas, August 24 – 26.
“Our DPF cleaning machine fulfills the industry’s need for a fast, economical and non-destructive way to clean DPFs,” said Bryan Case, General Manager, EcoClean Advantage. “Finally, you can clean a DPF in less time than it takes to change oil or tires, while saving time and money,” added Case.
The ability to effectively clean and dry a DPF in less than one hour results in improved efficiency and increased revenue potential for shop owners when compared to the standard air-blowing and kiln-baking method, which takes approximately 13 hours per DPF. In addition, the EcoClean non-destructive water-cleaning process eliminates the need for extended kiln-baking at 1,350°F, which can cause a DPF to crack and break.
According to Case, fleets operating their own EcoClean machines will benefit from significant cost savings when compared to using an outside DPF cleaning service. Fleets will also gain substantial uptime, and will save money on fuel thanks to improved fuel efficiency due to more frequent DPF cleaning.

As part of its philanthropic initiative, EcoClean Advantage is partnering with Feeding Children Everywhere and will donate 5,000 meals with the purchase of each machine, plus 10 meals per every filter cleaned by each purchased machine.
