Why you should choose Flash Cleaner Machine

A comparison between Flash Cleaner Machine and the most common DPF cleaning methods.

Description Time Costs Advantages/Disadvantages
Heat Treatment

Cut the DPF and put it into an oven that gradually reaches 1100-1130°F burning the carbon residuals. Then weld the DPF.

8-12 hours

Pneumatic cleaning: 90 minutes
Oven-baking: from 8-48 hours

Machineries: 4

- Backpressure Tester
- Oven
- Compressor
- Aspiration cab

Removal of most of the PM10 deposits

Risk damaging the integrity of the filter because of the cutting and welding

Melting of the cerium with the filter walls due to the high temperature

Risk of thermal shock that can damage the noble metals

Ultrasonics Treatment

Dip the DPF into an ultrasonic tank full of water. The ultrasonics form micro-bubbles inside where the temperature is very high and the pressure reaches 500ATM. The implosion of the bubbles causes the detachment of the particulate matter from all of the filter substrates.

12-24 hours

Ultrasonic cleaning, drying and pneumatic cleaning

Machineries: 3

- Ultrasonic Tank
- Oven
- Compressor

Deep cleaning of the filter cells

Poor efficiency on very dirty filters (oil) and larger filters

Risk of damaging the filter due to the vibrations generated by the ultrasonics and the implosion of the bubbles

High water consumption (need to change it often to eliminate the PM10 cleaning residuals which deposit at the bottom)

Chemical Additives

Put the chemical additives into the vehicle tank together with the fuel in order to melt the burning residuals inside the engine and to eliminate them through the exhaust pipe.


There is a wide range of additives; prices change according to the manufacturer and to the channels of sale.

Easy and cheap

Ineffective: residuals are not actually eliminated and more are added to those generated by the additive itself, going to block further the particular filter

Flash Cleaner Machine

Put the filter on the worktop of the washing cabin and connect it to the water pipe. Press START: depending on the type and the size of the filter, Flash Cleaner Machine performs the washing of the filter and then dries it with hot air

From 30 minutes (car DPF-FAP) to 120 minutes (truck DPF)

Machineries: 1

Flash Cleaner Machine is a one-of-a-kind machinery that performs all of the cleaning phases (washing and drying) without cutting, oven-baking and welding

Total removal of PM10 residuals

Removal of all oil residuals

Removal of cerium residuals

Efficient cleaning of all of the types of particulate filter and catalyst (cars and heavy goods vehicles, also SCR) of every size

Safety of the filter

Preservation of the noble metals of the DPF

Processing water always clean thanks to an efficient filtration system: no need to change the water but only to add it when it evaporates

Easy, fast and cheap
