DPF Investment Yields Cost Reduction for Fleets

DPF Clean Team, a specialist in reconditioning automotive parts, has just announced an investment in state-of-the-art equipment that will enable it to help fleet owners and managers to reduce their carbon emissions, running costs, and tax expenses. The company says that the specialized cleaning units can be used to provide maintenance that will eliminate the need for fleet operators to purchase replacement parts, thus providing a far more cost effective option.

The equipment cost DPF a large outlay of capital, and necessitated the addition of additional management positions. It will be capable of cleaning up to 1,000 Diesel Particulate Filters and Selective Catalytic Reduction units per month, a service which can be performed for vehicles including cars, light commercial vehicles and heavy goods vehicles.

According to Cameron Bryce, director of DPF Clean Team, “There is a strong link between CO2 output and fleet costs because emissions are proportional to the volume of fuel a vehicle burns, as many are aware. What people may not be aware of is that, just like any other component on their vehicles, the DPF unit requires regular maintenance and cleaning because the cost of replacement can be high. Regular checks and cleaning can also improve efficiencies, which can fall as the unit gets clogged, an extremely important consideration for fleet managers looking to keep costs on an even keel throughout the year.”

DPF Clean Team already works with many major companies and organizations, including the Leicestershire Metropolitan Police Force, Avis and Europcar. Their new equipment will be able to clean other automotive components as well, helping fleets to minimize the expense of purchasing a variety of replacement parts.
