Lube oil is the life-blood of an engine. It is essential for reducing friction, cooling engine components and carrying wear material and foreign debris to the filter. If contamination generated by the engine is not filtered out, abrasive material will build up and rapidly wear out the moving parts of the engine.
Oil is a major cost in the ongoing maintenance of an engine. Prolonging the life of the oil and minimising the impact of wear-causing particles are the obvious goals of the filtration system. Yet improving profitability is one of the major advantages of a healthy lubrication system.
By efficiently removing the particles that cause wear in an engine, your engine oil can last longer and therefore require less frequent oil changes (and less labour required for servicing). This translates to more uptime and more revenue.
Fleetguard lube filters incorporate superior filtration techniques to target the root of wear-causing particulate, namely soot.
Soot is generated by the combustion process and forms sludge in the oil. If not kept under control through effective filtration, this highly abrasive material will cause dramatic wear to an engine and adversely impact profitability.
Cummins Filtration produces a vast number of lube filters to fit a variety of engines. Our attention to quality ensures all the filters we make meet or exceed the specifications of original equipment manufacturers.
As the only manufacturer of filters that is owned by an engine company, Cummins Filtration’s expertise is unmatched.
