DPF Cleaning & Durathon Service ®

What is Durathon Service®?

Your DPF filter captures soot and wear materials coming from the engine, and it can mask engine problems that were previously detectable by observing the black smoke coming out of the tailpipe. For this reason Zippy Lube recommends performing a thorough maintenance and inspection process to the DPF and the engine on an annual basis.

We call this process Durathon Service®, and it goes above and beyond your typical DPF cleaning, offering extra inspection services and preventative maintenance that helps with early detection of engine malfunction and faults.

Key Factors for DPF and Engine Reliability
DPF Reliability and Performance is Key to Truck Reliability and Fuel Economy 
DPF Substrate Cleaning
Your DPF filter substrate must be professionally cleaned at least annually to remove the ash that builds up over time inside the filter.
Opacity Test
During the DPF service, the engine should be subject to an opacity test before re-installing the clean DPF filter.
Engine Maintenance
An annual engine inspection must be carried out because any engine upset conditions or faults can damage the DPF filter.
Annual Emission System Inspection
DPF systems have various annual inspection and maintenance requirements mandated by the original manufacturer. The process includes inspecting the indicator lights and DPF components, upgrading the diagnostics program if necessary, etc. This inspection must be performed by an authorized DPF dealer such as Zippy Lube and FleetCrew and is available through our expanded or premium Durathon Service. Failure to submit the DPF hrough this annual process may be the basis for denying a warranty claim.
