A parked regeneration is a very important process to extended the life of your Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), as well as keeping your truck at it’s peak performance. Your DPF removes the soot from the exhaust and stores it. Once that soot starts to build up, it can clog your DPF and decrease the performance of your truck. A parked regeneration is necessary to break down the soot to ash so your DPF does not clog. Eventually you will need to get your DPF cleaned completely, but always doing the recommended regenerations will help extend the life of your DPF.
Do you know the best practices for regeneration? Do you know what the DPF warning light means and what you should do?
We found this helpful video from Tallman Truck Centre that goes over the simple steps of a parked regeneration. It also explains the different soot levels of your DPF and safety tips to remember.
