Komatsu offers remanufacturing option for DPFs

Komatsu now offers remanufacturing for diesel particulate filters, having set up a new reman facility in Sydney

Komatsu has recently set up a remanufacturing facility for DPFs at its Fairfield head office in Sydney.

Komatsu’s DPF Reman process involves a series of quality assurance inspections and tests at all stages of the process to ensure they continue to meet emission and reliability standards, says Steve Bowling, Komatsu’s national operations manager – manufacturing support.

This includes high-pressure air cleaning and/or baking of the diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and the catalysed soot filter (CSF), the primary elements that make up the DPF core.

In addition, the DPF Reman process covers replacement of all gaskets and hardware –essential due to the high operating temperatures in these units – along with pressure and temperature sensors to ensure reliability.

Komatsu’s DPF Reman facility caters for the 9-inch (22.9cm), 10.5-inch (26.7cm), 12-inch (30.5cm) and 14-inch (35.6cm) diameter core sizes currently used on Komatsu T4 engines.

“Changing over a DPF is a very straightforward process for our customers,” says Bowling.

“We offer a fixed price, depending on the machine model, and it’s simply a matter of giving us the old DPF when we swap it out.

“Komatsu Reman DPFs are available through our service and parts departments throughout Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia, and cost approximately one-quarter to one-third the price of a new unit.

“And as with all our Reman products, Komatsu Reman DPFs are backed by our full factory warranty.”
