Forklift truck cleaning and surface preparation (stripping) for repainting purposes.
FilterMaster for cars
for vehicles up to 3,5 tons
Version without use of compressed air
The quality and efficiency of the DPF cleaning system “FilterMaster for cars” is impressive. Since no cutting and welding is required, the entire housing including the pipes remains intact. The DPF cleaning process previously used for car exhaust diesel particulate filters are therefore no longer contemporary and no longer competitive in terms of preserving the value invested in them. The method also differs significantly from cleaning equipment and washcoat that rinses the filter with water and/or with water-based or other chemicals. Water can penetrate in the porous “washcoat” – which binds the catalytic metal particles. In contrast “FilterMaster for Cars” operates with purified compressed air to which a microscopic amount of active agent is added as an aerosol for a short time. The active agent is non-toxic and could even be drinkable, except for its unpleasant taste. Research and practical experience have shown that the active agent will not damage the catalytic surfaces. The fact that the process does not damage exhaust particulate filters has been confirmed by several studies, including one at the University of Paderborn. No damage by the entry of “drinkable chemistry” was shown through the procedure test. The project started in 2011 as part of a two-year grant involving Kipp Umwelttechnik GmbH and the University of Paderborn. The aim of the project was to develop a method for purifying exhaust gas particulate filters without having to dismantle or seperate the supply and discharge lines of the filter. This project laid the foundation for the subsequent successful joint development “FilterMaster for cars”.

The benefits of the system “FilterMaster for cars” extend to several areas:
- Fully automatic cleaning minimizes the sources of errors
- Unsoiled and gentle cleaning maintains the catalytic qualities of the filter
- Cleaning without separating and welding work retains the quality of the filter housing
- Risks of damage, such as caused by melting during the burning process at temperatures of 550°and more are avoided, since the filters are only treated with a temperature of 350° after the cleaning process
- Quick cleaning times reduce vehicle downtime
- The costs for filter cleaning are reduced
