Oil Filtration – The Benefits and Importance of Clean Oil
Oil is the life-blood of the engine, therefore oil filtration and clean oil is essential if an engine is to operate efficiently throughout its working life. In response to environmental and customer requirements engine manufacturers are adapting their designs to reduce harmful emissions and at the same time extend oil drain intervals.
Emission reduction technologies such as EGR (Exhaust Gas Reticulation) have been shown to increase the level of contaminants, especially soot, in the lubricating oil. The net effect is modern oils are being required to work harder, last longer and contain higher levels of contamination. Therefore advances in oil chemistry and oil filtration technology are essential to meet these needs.
