The Diesel Particulate Filter is similar to a catalytic converter in the exhaust stream in all diesel engines made after January 1, 2007.

It is comprised of two chambers. The first chamber works to oxidize a portion of the NO gas in the exhaust to NO2.
The second chamber then destroys the soot that is trapped inside. The result of this process leaves a small amount of ash which remains in the filter.


A Diesel Particulate Filter will capture soot until they fill up and create too much backpressure.
At that point Diesel Particulate Filters use one of two approaches to clean .
Off truck Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaning and Regeneration / ReGen  and they are not the same thing.

DPFs on all 2007 and later engines must be cleaned at proper intervals of approx. 200,000 miles on average for highway applications.
When in Severe service (vehicles with high idle times and little on highway driving) may need the DPF cleaned in as little as 75,000 miles.
