New Pall Diesel Lube Oil Filters Offer 10-Micron Absolute Filtration
The new Performax™ full-flow diesel lube oil filters from the Mobile Aftermarket Division, Pall Industrial Hydraulics Corporation, provide the users of Detroit Diesel, Caterpillar, and Cummins engines the extended engine life and improved performance of 10-micron absolute filtration. By removing damaging contaminant particles and greatly extending the useful life of diesel engines, Performax filters are said to offer a level of protection and performance not previously available to the operators of dieselpowered equipment.
The superiority of Performax filters is derived from their high-efficiency filter medium. Constructed of gradient-pore, resin-bonded synthetic fibers, and rated at 98.7 percent efficiency, Performax medium controls the critical 5- to 10-micron wear-causing particles responsible for premature component destruction and deteriorating engine performance. These characteristics account for longer service life, lower pressure drop, and more consistent performance of Performax filters when compared with conventional, nominal rated, paper type filters. In addition, the inorganic synthetic media produces a filter element of significant strength and durability.
To obtain the most useful life from Performax filters, Pall offers the Lube-Mynd-R™ engine oil filter monitor. This sensing device, which mounts between the diesel lube filter and the engine, signals the operator of the need to change filter elements when 90 percent of the filter life is consumed, thereby maximizing filter service life while minimizing premature change-out and the risk of operating the filter in bypass.
