Dieselcraft Centrifuges

January 2013 News

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.
