Cummins ISL9 regening too often. I have been working on this

Customer Question

Cummins ISL9 regening too often.
I have been working on this bus on and off for several months. It is trying to actively regen around every 2 hours.
ISL9
CM2250
engine serial# *****
ECM code CB90010.41
Here are the specs I've gotten while a driving regen is going.
DOC Intake Temp - 946.1 f
DPF Intake Temp - 1081.6 f
DPF Outlet Temp - 1149.2 f
EGR Differential Pressure - 0.2 InHg
EGR Valve Commanded - 2%
Intake Manifold Pressure - 16.3 InHg
Turbo Actuator Commanded (Percent Closed) - 4%
Turbo Actuator Position (Percent Closed) - 4%
Turbo Intake Air Temp - 96.2 f
Turbo Intake Outlet Air Temp - 260.7 f
Are the DOC and DPF Temps hot enough to do a complete burn out of the soot in the DPF?
Both the DOC and DPF have been sent off to be cleaned.
If they are, what tells the ECM the DPF need to be burnt out?
The DPF diffrential pressure sensor has been replaced.

ok great, how many miles/ hours are on this?

Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 5 months ago.

if you pull the down pipe off at the DOC and snap the throttle do you get black smoke? it should puff then go away

Engine Hours 13428:47:07 HH:MM:SSAre you refering to before the DOC or after the DOC/DPF?
Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 5 months ago.

before the DOC

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
ok, hard pipe to get to. Yes I'm getting puffs of black smoke.
Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 5 months ago.

ok so it puffs and goes away correct? is there a low power complaint?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Puffs and goes away. Plenty of power until code 2639 puts it into derate mode.

Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 5 months ago.

have you preformed the DPF install reset?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
It's been reset.
Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 5 months ago.

ok, so you will run a regen and it will clear the 2639, then in 2 hr or so it will come back, what does the DPF diff pressure start at and build up to in that time?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
It was around 2.?? - 3.?? when the regen started. I think it was around 0.5 when the regen stopped.I am currently cleaning the EGR system thinking it was breaking peices of carbon off and sending it thru to the DPF.The regen temp was from 980 f at the DOC to 1037 f coming out of the DPF. I was thinking it needed to be above 1200 f.
Can you confirm what the temp is suppose to be during a regen?
Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 5 months ago.

my next question i was goign to ask is how is the EGR because i have seen plugged EGR coolers cause frequent regen many times. your dpf outlet temp is a little cool but not much, usually run around 1100, is the DOC inlet temp at 980 seems pretty high usually see it around 750-850

Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 5 months ago.

if the EGR system is carboned up it could cause a higher than normal temp

Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 5 months ago.

according to cummins the DOC inlet will run 500-750 and DPF in and out should be(###) ###-####/p>
