- Method: High-pressure air blasts through the filter to dislodge particles.
- Pros: Quick and effective for soot removal.
- Cons: Less effective for ash; repeated use may damage the filter.
Pneumatic DPF cleaning uses high-pressure air to blow through the DPF, dislodging soot particles.
This method is faster than manual cleaning and is effective for removing loose soot.
The process typically involves directing airflows through each cell of the filter, effectively blowing out the accumulated particulates.
Air cleaning is genreally less effective for compacted ash. Repeated applications may eventually damage the filter structure.
Pneumatic cleaning may be best suited for regular maintenance where the soot load is not heavily compacted.
