Will fitment of a centrifuge affect lube oil pressure on my engine?
Therefore it is important to use the correct Mann+Hummel oil cleaning centrifuge for the application.
Will the centrifuge remove the additives in the oil?
Spent additives, when mixed with soot, become additional wear particles and contribute to oil thickening. Only spent additive package in lubricating oil is removed along with soot and other debris by the centrifuge.
It’s to be remembered that additives deplete, that’s why we change oil. It is also a known fact that the dirtier the oil the quicker the additive pack will destruct. This explains why engine oil burn often stops or decreases and oil lasts longer soon after fitting a Mann+Hummel centrifuge.
If I fit a centrifuge do I still need a full flow filter or a bypass filter?
When you fit a Mann+Hummel centrifuge you must remove any additional by-pass filter unless it is incorporated in the full flow filter, this because collectively they could affect the oil pressure. As the centrifuge is the superior cleaner, extracting dirt particles less than 0.25 of 1 micron, there is not need to have both bypass filters. This always results in an added economy and extends oil life.
Why is lube oil type and temperature so important?
In conclusion, the hotter the oil and the thinner the oil the better the dirt/soot separation. The less abbrasives in the oil the longer engine componentry life, which results in substantial $avings in rebuilds and down time and of course dollars and cents. The better the oil quality, the better the result.
Can the Centrifuge remove soot?
When soot is present in lube oil and not removed, not only will you see oil thickening but the soot has the ability to attack the ZDDP antiwear additive. This results in premature breakdown of the oil. We are unaware of any filtration system that will extract 100% of the soot particles from diesel engine oil. however, we have seen oil reports that show consistent extraction of particles of less than 0.25 of 1 micron.
The Mann+Hummel centrifuge is widely accepted as the industry leader world wide for maintaining traditional oil change intervals. Also with Quality oil sampling, and very best quality oils, many centrifuge users can substantially extend oil & filter change intervals while maintaining the boundaries of OEM oil cleanliness parameters. This will also achieving substantially extended engine life before rebuilds.
Can the centrifuge contribute in any way to destructing my engine?
That factor is one of the significant reasons why the Mann+Hummel centrifuge enjoys the support of over 50 engine manufacturers worldwide.
