Some optional bypass filters can catch particles to seven
micron, where most OEM engine filters have only a 25 micron rating and
typically, the very best OEM full-flow filters have a capture efficiency of 50
percent at particle sizes of 10 microns and above.
All filters rely on molecular attraction to catch the smaller
particles, meaning the 2-, 3-, and 4-micron particles need to stick together to
make 9-, 10-, and 20-micron particles so they are large enough to not pass
through the filter untouched.
But today's oil inhibits molecular attraction due to the
modern detergents and dispersants in the oil's makeup. This being said, the
only way to remove the small and most damaging particles from the oil is via a
centrifugal form of separation.
Dieselcraft offers two bypass centrifuges at www.dieselcraft.com
that cover 90 percent of all internal combustion engines used and have over
five times the debris-removal effectiveness of any filters on the market.
This is because the Dieselcraft Centrifuges removes dirt and
wear particles from the oil flow all together. Filters trap solids and hold
them from circulating further, that is all. They reduce oil flow and eventually
reach the point of not working. The cleaning efficiency remains constant in a
Dieselcraft Centrifuge where in any filter efficiency starts to drop off the
minute you install it.
The Dieselcraft Centrifuge cleans engine oil by generating a
centrifugal force which is 2,000 times greater than gravity. Engine oil pressure
spins the rotor at a rate up to 6,000 rpms. That force separates the solid
contaminants from the main oil supply while spinning the solids to the inside
walls of the rotor, which is easily cleaned. Contaminant particles less than
one micron are removed, eliminating the wear and tear on close tolerance metal
parts by at least 50 percent. Consider also the overall savings by reducing the
number of annual oil changes, plus fewer filters that need to be disposed of.
Generally oil change intervals using conventional oil can be
extended to double. And with synthetic oils, oil change intervals can be
extended well over three times. Lab testing of oil is needed to determine the
correct change interval for each application but synthetics have been known to
go over 700 hours and still report as passing analysis as good to go further. To
