Plan Now For End-Of-Year Equipment Purchases

Even though it’s still months away, many diesel aftertreatment service & truck parts providers are starting to think about End-of-Year purchasing. The reasons vary from paying less taxes to increasing next year’s profits. If you’re interested in expanding your existing DPF cleaning business or starting one up, we encourage you to do 2 things:

  1. Start the process sooner rather than later.
  2. Seriously consider the advantages of investing in Filtertherm DPF cleaning solutions.

Plan Now For End-Of-Year Equipment Purchases Hero 2


An often-overlooked aspect of the process is how much time is needed for product research, securing financing, and manufacturing.

Most likely you already know about the research phase, especially given the magnitude of these types of purchases. It’s important to take enough time to understand the different aspects of adding equipment like this to your shop. We have many RESOURCES to help with this, including brochures, manuals, and floor plan schematics. You can use these to figure out details such as electrical power and space requirements for each machine.

And then there’s the loan application process to procure financing (should you need it). The paperwork and bureaucratic processes often take way longer than anyone expects.

Additionally, the manufacturing of these advanced DPF Cleaning machines takes time. We build them from the ground up at our California headquarters. We already have several DPF Cleaning systems that have been ordered and are being assembled as we speak.


Perhaps, you’re still on the fence. First, Filtertherm DPF cleaning equipment is a great way to make money on aftertreatment maintenance. By providing fast and efficient DPF Cleaning for your customers, you can offer convenience and better service and that generally means increased profits for your business. Plus, if you also carry aftertreatment parts like those from Redline Emissions Products, you’ll have more opportunities to sell replaceable parts such as clamps and gaskets as part of your DPF Cleaning service packages.

Not just equipment…

We’ve also developed a complete DPF Cleaning Tracking software solution called FILTERTrak. This tool manages all the data related to DPF cleanings including before and after pictures, benchmark results, and more. It can generate customizable cleaning reports to send to your customers. And you get a free one-year subscription to FILTERTrak with every Filtertherm system purchased (a $1,200 value).

Bottom line: Filtertherm® provides complete, quality, purpose-built DPF Cleaning solutions with high-volume capacity, and fast ROI. And each machine is made in the USA by American workers.

Now that you’re thinking about purchasing Filtertherm DPF cleaning equipment, there are a few things you can do to move forward.

You can start by determining which type of equipment is right for your operation. Filtertherm offers two types of DPF Cleaning systems: Thermal and Aqueous. You’ll want to choose one that’s a good fit for your customers’ aftertreatment maintenance needs and your budget/shop size.

Simply plug in a few numbers to get a quick estimate of your ROI based on the expected number of cleanings per week and how much you can charge per DPF cleaning.

Our goal is to make your experience with Filtertherm as easy as possible with fast responses to your questions, clear concise price quotes, an informative website, and honest conversations across the board.
