Bypass Oil Cleaning Centrifuge
Engine Pressure Spins the Centrifuge, Removing Particles as Small as 1 Micron or Less.
have what is called a full-flow oil filter. These filters generally filter to
25 microns…however, Dieselcraft says a 25 micron filter is only 80%
effective, meaning 20% of particle larger than 25 microns are NOT held in the
filter and go out to wear out your engine. The other point is that the average
oil film thickness between components in your engine is 5 to 20 microns.
According to the SAE, particles as small
as 4 microns can cause up to 77% of engine wear.
The Dieselcraft OC-25 Centrifuge
and Magnum Model 180AP cleans engine oil by generating a centrifugal force
which is 2,000 times greater than gravity. Engine oil pressure spins the rotor
at 6,000 rpms. That force separates the solid contaminates from the main oil
supply while slinging the solids to the inside walls of the rotor, which is
Contaminant particles less than 1 micron
are removed, eliminating the wear and tear on close tolerance metal parts by at
The Dieselcraft OC-25 and
Magnum Model 180AP centrifuge is a compact bypass type system. This
system measures less than 5 inches in diameter and less than 10 inches tall.
And unlike other centrifuges it requires only a ¼˝ NPT tapped hole to return the
oil to the engine through a 3/8˝ ID hose.
In engine applications oil change
intervals using conventional oil can be extended to double if not three times.
And with synthetic oils oil changes can be extended over 40,000 miles or
750 hours, replacement filters and disposal costs
are also greatly reduced.
Because of its lower flow rate of .93
GPM, physical size and the unique oil return system the OC-25 can be used on a
wide variety of gasoline or diesel engines in any application…pick up
trucks, gen sets, dozers, boats it does not matter. If it has oil pressure and
a 12-24 volt power we will clean the oil.
The Model 180 AP is suited for large 100
gallon plus sump equipment
Lab testing of oil is needed to
determine the correct change interval for each application.
