What is Causing DPF Plugging in My Delivery Truck?

When it comes to delivery trucks, DPF issues are far too common place. The stop-and-go driving, high idle, and low average speed typical in delivery trucks causes the problem. The type of driving seen in delivery trucks is far different than the driving done by they typical over-the-road truck. Delivery truck type of use does not allow the DPF and DOC to maintain enough heat to clean the DPF. Additionally, this type of use also causes regens to stop before they finish.

Dealing with premature DPF failure is problem enough, however, DPF plugging issues also cause more downtime and repairs for your delivery fleet. This is due to the simple fact that if the DPF is constantly dirty and plugged, all the other Aftertreatment components have to work harder fighting the back pressure of the dirty filter. This causes progressive damage to those parts, and causes them to fail prematurely as well.

A DPF plugging problem is trouble for your entire Aftertreatment system.
