Making It Easy to Stay Compliant

With stricter environmental standards and increasing fuel prices, Detroit engineers have focused on developing innovative technologies that increase efficiency at the pump and the tailpipe. With Detroit™ Genuine Parts and 800-plus authorized service outlets across North America, Detroit is the clear choice for keeping your emissions up and running smoothly.

In 2007, Detroit developed our Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) to capture both soot and ash from exhaust gas. While the particulate filter completely oxidizes the soot, accumulated ash cannot be oxidized and must be physically removed from the filter. The proprietary cleaning process developed by Detroit removes over 90% of accumulated ash, making it more effective than other cleaning methods. Detroit is the only original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to use thermal, air and liquid cleaning to thoroughly clean each DPF, meeting our strict standards for Detroit Genuine Parts.

A remanufactured Detroit DPF provides the quality you demand combined with quick turnaround and no-hassle core acceptance.

Detroit is committed to delivering proven technologies and quality components that:

  • Meet emissions standards
  • Enhance your vehicle’s resale value
  • Minimize downtime

Only remanufactured Detroit DPFs offer:

  • Proprietary, globally accepted thermal/air/liquid cleaning technology
  • An environmentally-friendly process
  • Automated testing and validation
  • Advanced shipping and handling methods
  • Fast service at more than 800 authorized service locations

Don’t trust air-only cleaners because they:

  • Don’t loosen and/or remove as much ash packed into the filter substrate
  • Claim effective cleaning when removing as little as 30% of accumulated ash
  • Require more cleanings and less efficient operation
  • Do NOT meet Detroit Genuine Parts’ strict standards

Reduce Downtime: Just Stop, Swap and Go

When your DPF needs cleaning, choose a remanunfactured Detroit Genuine Parts DPF for maximum engine performance, enhanced efficiency and reduced downtime—so you get back up and running quickly. Your particulate filter will be exchanged for a clean unit at any authorized Detroit service location.

No downtime for:

  • Stationary regeneration
  • Installing DPF into an air pressure blowing machine

Our no-hassle DPF core exchange process enables:

  • Off-the-shelf parts availability
  • Quick-turn installation
  • Full credit for undamaged cores (based on an on-the-spot visual core examination)

Every remanufactured Detroit DPF is backed by a 1-year/unlimited-mile warranty

A remanufactured Detroit DPF is the only replacement DPF that is OEM warranty-approved for Detroit and MBE engines. Detroit will not cover damages that result from using a non-authorized DPF cleaning process.
