The soot that is removed from a particulate filter during cleaning is extremely hazardous and spreads in the air like a fog when blown out. As a result of this a filter should never be cleaned in an environment where there is a risk that the soot can be inhaled. Additionally the collected soot should be collected and disposed of properly.
Dinex strongly advises you not to perform cleaning of a particulate filter without proper equipment and training. The health of you and your colleagues are at stake. Dinex has service partners across Europe with the proper expertise to help you efficiently and get you quickly back on the road. Contact your local Dinex sales office and get directions.
