Navistar Parts has added the FSX cleaning system for diesel particulate filters to its line of products available through International and IC Bus dealers. The FSX cleaning machine features Air Knife Technology on the inlet and outlet sides of the DPF filter, which is designed to facilitate proper cleaning of the filter, longer duty cycles between cleanings and full life expectancy of the DPF.
“When the 2007 emissions requirements were enacted, virtually every diesel truck on the road had to install a diesel particulate filter,” says Andrew Zielinski, Green product director for Navistar Parts. “Three years later, these filters are beginning to need regular cleaning to help keep them working efficiently.”
The FSX system includes the TrapBlaster 7 Pneumatic Cleaner, which provides cell-by-cell cleaning in both automatic and manual modes; the TrapTester 7 Air Flow Test Bench, which measures airflow before and after cleaning to ensure compliance; the TrapBurner Thermal Cleaner for thermal regeneration of filters; and the SootSucker Dust Collector, which captures waste from the cleaning process. International and IC Bus dealers can sell the FSX cleaning machines to customers and fleets who need on-site cleaning.
“Our extensive dealer network is able to offer customers an opportunity to purchase this new preventive maintenance tool for DPF filters, just as vehicles are beginning to need to clean their filters,” Zielinski says. “Participating dealers who are equipped with a DPF cleaning system are beginning to offer filter cleaning as a service to their customers.”
