Cleaning with BAC101 could not be simpler and with our amazing 2 part cleaning system you can finally remove all 4 elements of a blocked DPF. Carbon, Soot, Oil and ASH! making BAC101 the only complete DPF cleaning solution on the market.
Each kit comes with a pump, nylon pipe, measuring jug and solutions. These come as a single user kit, 5x kit, 12x kit and 25x kit and 50x kit.
As with all chemicals, you must wear protective clothing, we suggest you wear nitrile gloves and a face protector. If you get any of the liquids on your skin, please wash instantly and thoroughly until completely clean.
Stage 1 – Locate DPF filter
Once you have found the DPF filter you should see either a pressure sensor or o2 sensor. Undo this sensor to reveal and entry port to the DPF in order to complete the clean.
Stage 2 – Solution “B”
The second stage is to mix your solution. Add plain water to the pump bottle up to the 1.25-liter mark on the side of the pump bottle. Measure 200ml of liquid B using the measuring jug and pour into the pump bottle then tighten the lid. Pump the bottle between 12-20 times to build pressure.
Stage 3 – Blast
Start the engine and set the RPM to 2500. Spray the entire content of the bottle into the DPF and then allow to idle for a further 15 minutes and then turn off.
Stage 4 – Cleanse “C”
As with stage 2, add 1.25 liter of water to the bottle and then measure 200ml of solution C and place into the bottle. Spray the contents of the pump into the DPF unit and wait for 15 minutes before starting the engine and increasing the RPM to 2500 for a final 15 minutes. It is common to see foam as well as deposits coming from the exhaust at this time, and this is quite normal. The use of a catch bucket underneath the exhaust tips is advisable during this time.
The entire process should be completed in under 1 hour but if you have a particularly blocked DPF unit you may need to increase the wait time on stage 4 to 20-30 minutes.
It is also normal to have to use a diagnostic tool to reset the DPF system so that the warning lights are removed following the cleaning process.
Alternate Cleaning Tips
Heavy commercial vehicles; A great tip for high mileage, heavy duty commercial vehicles is the "Push-Soak"
This method is similar to the standard cleaning method except that when you first inject the "B" solution, you spray the contents into the filter with the pump and then after refitting the sensor, you start the engine and rev too 1200rpm for 2 seconds and then immediately cut off the engine. This forces a portion of the solution into the chambers of DPF filter where it can soak for 15 minutes for a deeper, more thorough clean. Once 15 minutes have passed you simply start the engine and allow it to run for 15 minutes as the guidelines above suggest and then continue as normal with the Stage 4 Cleanse solution.
Off vehicle tub soak: This is a great way to clean a DPF when it is off the vehicle. You make a tub of solution similar to a bathtub, first by sourcing a suitably sized plastic tub that will accommodate the DPF filter. Half fill this tub with clean water and pour in 200-400ml of the "B" solution and carefully place in the DPF filter so that the filter is completely covered with water. If more water is required to completely soak the DPF unit you simply need to top-up as required.
Soak the filter for 30 minutes then turn the filter round so as to allow the solutions to mix within the DPF filter by way or rotation* After this, leave the filter in the tub for a further 30 minutes. When removing the filter from the solution* you can sway the filter unit in a side-to-side motion in order to pass the solution through the filter, allowing the contaminants to drain away into the tub. Hang the DPF filter above the tub for a few minutes to all the solutions and contaminants to completely drain. Following the initial soak in the "B" solution it is good practice to then refill the tub with fresh clean water and add 200-400ml of the "C" solution and allow the DPF to soak in this for a further 30 minutes, this will aid the removal of the carbon, soot, ash and oil giving a much deeper clean.
*When handling any chemical solution you must always wear protective clothing and gloves. We recommend using nitrile gloves.
