Abstract:
Economic, regulatory and environmental concerns are forcing vehicle operators to reevaluate oil filtration practices. Operators can choose from options, including conventional disposable filters, sieves, centrifugal separators and in-place cleanable oil (IPCO) filters. To guide decisions about filtration practices, this paper compares the performance, serviceability, economics and environmental impact of these options. A laboratory evaluation of representative products was conducted. Additional field tests of disposable and IPCO filters for on- and off-road applications were also conducted Disposable and IPCO filters are similar in terms of serviceability and contamination control, but IPCO filters offer environmental and economic advantages
