Barten GmbH – Our Quality and Environmental Policy
We, the Barten GmbH, deal with the cleaning of soot particle filters from combined heat and power plants and motor vehicles.
Our aim is to achieve high quality in our defined processes and to satisfy our customers. These are our highest company goals, which consider the present and future requirements of our customers and strive to exceed the expectations of our customers.
The increasing level of education and the resulting sensitization of people for the preservation of the environment for future generations contribute to the fact that the customer attaches ever more importance to an environmentally conscious execution of the ordered work. Our cleaning process protects the environment, reduces waste and saves energy during production.
In order to meet the growing requirements and external influences and to further increase and secure quality as well as environmental concerns, we have adapted the existing QUM system to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.
We use this system to identify errors throughout the company, analyse their causes and prevent their occurrence through appropriate corrective and preventive measures. In this way, we are in a position to provide our customers with high-quality product services.
In addition, the environmental management system gives us the legal security to limit high consequential costs due to an environmental accident.
Our quality and environmental management manual defines all organisational and technical processes that have an impact on product quality and the environment. The planning, control and monitoring of these activities are subject to the management in cooperation with our management representative. Our organisation guarantees the optimal interaction of all quality- and environment-related activities and the continuous implementation of quality- and environment-related measures. The quality / environmental policy is constantly checked by the management with regard to its expediency and correctness. Together with the results of the annual evaluation of customer satisfaction, it provides the basis for setting targets for continuous system improvement.

Barten GmbH: innovative company – innovative cleaning process
” We use a TÜV-tested thermal-mechanical cleaning process developed by ourselves for the cleaning of diesel particulate filters”.
With endoscopic camera technology, we can inspect the condition of the filter in the closed housing. With an air throughput and weight measurement we determine the blockage/load of the filter. After the first analysis of the severity of the contamination, the filters are cleaned as often and as long as necessary until they have been freed of approx. 98% of the soot and ash residues and have reached the reference value for the respective filter type. This requires several cleaning processes depending on the degree of contamination.
Our process makes it possible to remove all residues – mainly soot and ash – gently.
After each cleaning process, the filters are checked for their degree of cleaning by means of a special air flow measurement. Only when this corresponds to our reference values is the filter considered to be cleaned.
In the final inspection, the final values are recorded in our test protocol after successful cleaning. This test report, with the values before and after cleaning, is handed over to each customer. This allows us to prove and guarantee that the filter, which was previously heavily soiled, has the technical properties of a new filter again after cleaning.
Barten GmbH: 18 years of expertise in the cleaning of diesel particulate filters
“We are one of Germany’s leading companies when it comes to cleaning diesel particulate filters. 18 years ago, we were the first company in Germany to offer this cleaning method and have steadily expanded our expertise in this field ever since. Our innovative and gentle cleaning process has been tested by TÜV-Rheinland and has already been successfully applied to more than 80,000 filters of all kinds”.
In our company, we rely on a combination of mechanical and thermal processes for cleaning.
All methods are handled fast and uncomplicated – that saves time and money!
The aim is to free the diesel particulate filter from the deposited soot and ash residues using the various processes and thus restore an optimum filter effect.
In order to deliver a convincing cleaning quality, we have had our cleaning process inspected and certified by TÜV Rheinland.
In this test series, several new, cleaned and dirty filters were compared with each other. TüV Rheinland found out that our cleaning process restores the flow characteristics of cleaned filters to a comparable quality of new filters. This means that filters cleaned by us can be equated with new filters.
In order to maintain the quality standards in the process of diesel particulate filter cleaning at the highest level, Barten GmbH is certified annually by Dekra in environmental and quality management according to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.
We can advise against so-called DPF self-cleaners with a clear conscience.
