Advanced exhaust systems on diesel vehicles play an integral role in reducing emissions to an environmentally friendly level. Within the exhaust system, Diesel Particulate Filters are responsible for removing soot from the exhaust stream. Historically, when a DPF failed, the only option was to purchase an expensive, brand-new unit. CARDONE Remanufactured Diesel Particulate Filters provide an alternative for light and medium-duty trucks and passenger cars with coverage on 90% of the market. They are re-engineered to meet or exceed O.E. performance standards, but at a fraction of the cost.
- Direct-fit O.E. replacement. Units are contained in the O.E. stainless steel housings to ensure precise flow, safety and durability.
- After reassembly, units are media blasted and coated to renew exterior appearance and increase corrosion protection.
- All applicable O.E.-quality temperature sensors and sealing gaskets are provided to ensure a complete repair.
- Each unit is flow-tested to on-car exhaust levels before and after the remanufacturing process to verify it meets O.E. performance standards.
- Exhaust hangers and sensor mount holes are welded, where necessary, to return each part to factory fit and function.
- Parts are thoroughly cleaned to remove loose particulate matter then baked at high temperatures to return units to O.E. performance levels.
- New mounting nuts are included with units containing mounting studs.

CoreWhat is a core? A core is a used automotive part that is returned to the remanufacturer instead of being scrapped. Why return cores? Cores are literally at the “core” of the remanufacturing process, because they are the raw material used to start the remanufacturing process. That’s why remanufacturers buy cores back from customers, and they pay the most for good quality cores. If a core has too much damage in key areas, it may be unusable or require extra resources to process; therefore a reduced core payment may be awarded. This core policy explains potential deductions that may be taken from the core price if certain components are missing or damaged. What is remanufacturing? Remanufacturing is the process of taking used parts, completely disassembling and thoroughly cleaning them, replacing the worn components with original quality components, and restoring them to their original function. Every unit is 100% tested to ensure O.E. performance. Why “reman”? PRODUCTS - Reman captures used, durable goods like auto parts and puts them “back on the road” to new and sometimes better than new performance. Reman provides the opportunity for detection of common failure modes and incorporation of design improvements to prevent repeat failure.
ECONOMY - Reman products cost consumers about 40% less than new. Reman products are one of the few “green” products that actually costs less than their “non-green” counterparts.
ENVIRONMENTAL - Reman saves up to 86% of the energy required to build a new unit. Reman realizes Greenhouse Gas savings of up to 25 lbs. per unit over new. Reman saves up to 85% of the raw material required to produce a new unit by reusing existing products. Reman is even more sustainable than recycling, as product castings are preserved rather than melted down to raw material, saving energy and reducing emissions.
