Installing a Retrofit DPF

It’s important to maintain your DPF, especially if it is going to be or has been retrofitted. Retrofitted literally means to add something newer in technology to something that’s older. In this case, we generally add different kinds of DPFs to get each specific diesel engine emissions up to standards with the emissions requirements most heavy-duty trucks couldn’t meet without.

Truck and Bus Regulations

We make sure to evaluate and assess each diesel that comes through our doors to hand pick a DPF that will be a perfect fit on your truck. Through careful selection of the appropriate DPF and professional installation, you can make your truck’s emissions performance and compliant with CARB without having to purchase a newer vehicle. We’ll keep your fleet current with regulations based on your vehicle’s needs and the Truck and Bus Regulations.

CARB Demands

CARB demands that old pre-smog trucks be upgraded before they are able to continue hauling in California. Old engines have to be retrofitted or replaced. With enforcement of regulations starting at $1,000 per month, CARB is serious about citing those who are in violation with the law. This will only increase each month and will become even worse if caught without a DPF or cited without repairing your vehicle to compliance.

Verify Your Parts with CARB

When it comes to retrofitting, we make sure to verify that it will work with your engine’s manufacturer. If done at My DPF Cleaning, we understand what your vehicle needs and which equipment is right for your vehicle. It’s crucial to maintain DPFs, because they are specific to each manufacturer and that engine, which is why picking the right DPF to retrofit with your vehicle is so important. Between our parts and our mechanics we’ll get you CARB compliant and your truck or fleets up to date. Like any DPF, you will need to bring it in for fast routine cleaning while our mechanics check out your oil and other parts of your engine related to the emissions system to make sure everything is working correctly.
Remember to Follow CARB Restrictions However, it is illegal to install a used DPF on a vehicle unless you own both vehicles OR the DPF is verified
