LF14000 NN Best-In-Class Lube Filter

Cummins Filtration Introduces Best-In-Class Lube Filter for Cummins ISX Engines

• Fleetguard LF14000NN lube filter with NanoNet® media delivers exceptional particle removal and capacity

• Now standard on all Cummins ISX engines

Cummins Filtration Inc., an industry leader in diesel engine filtration technology, has announced the release of the Fleetguard LF14000NN lube filter for Cummins ISX diesel engines.

LF14000NN is the company’s first lube filter with NanoNet® media, a patented polymeric nanotechnology-based synthetic media originally developed for Fleetguard fuel filter applications. This technology development will bring a new level of lube filter performance to the heavy-duty diesel engine market.

Many of the characteristics that make NanoNet media so successful in fuel filter applications translate well to lube filters,” said Brad Long, Senior Engineering Technical Advisor, Cummins Filtration. “By pairing NanoNet with our proven StrataPore™ synthetic media, we can offer a lube filter that’s suited to meet the needs of today’s advanced engine platforms and lubricants as well as those coming in the near future.”

NanoNet media in lube filtration removes and retains 98.7 percent of all particles as small as 12 microns. The 100% synthetic, multi-layer polymer design is thinner than a 10 cent piece yet gives the media a robust structure, allowing for maximum contaminant-holding capacity over the course of the filter’s service life.

In the case of LF14000NN lube filter, the NanoNet and StrataPore media structures work together for best-in-class particle removal, capacity, and cold-flow ability to give uncompromising protection and filter life for today’s ISX engines.

“Our NanoNet media structure enables much higher cold-flow ability (than competitors) while retaining its high efficiency characteristics in filtering lube oil,” Long said. “High cold-flow ability means less restriction and faster oil lubrication during cold start-up, and lubricating and protecting the vital engine components. Filter efficiency, capacity and cold-flow ability are all improved.”

Available throughout the Fleetguard distributor network, LF14000NN is now standard on all new Cummins ISX engines and should be used to service all ISX engines. LF14000NN is suitable wherever LF9080 was previously used and is the Cummins recommended upgrade performance filter.

“NanoNet media provides the absolute best in filtration performance in applications where uptime, performance, and cost-effective operations are imperative,” said Jeremy Harden, Lube Global Product Manager, Cummins Filtration. “LF14000NN with NanoNet is one more example of how Cummins unites quality and innovation in diesel engine filtration.”
