Fleetguard's Centriguard Reduces Emissions

Fleetguard, manufacturer of heavyduty engine oil filtration systems, has released its new Centriguard centrifugal filtration.

Designed for diesel engines 18- liter and larger, the filters reduce emissions, extend drain intervals and remove contaminants in lube oil. which wear down valve bridges and fuel injectors, and cause bearing failure and sludge formation. The system is especially conducive for removing very small particles (between one and five microns) and soot.

The Centriguard system, which is modeled after the company's patented ConeStaC technology, allows equipment to operate in extended service environments, with lower replacement part and labor costs to service. ConeStaC also effectively works to remove contaminants by forcing particles to migrate across a narrow gap between plastic cones.

Once particles reach the cone surface, they move outward toward the Centriguard plastic liner shell and are compressed.

The product's 44000 Series is available for both engine- and remotemounted installations. Fleetguard also offers centrifugal filters for on/off highway applications in the eight-16 liter range.
