NASHVILLE, Tenn.,— Cummins Filtration announced earlier this week that it has released the Fleetguard LF14000NN lube filter for Cummins ISX15 diesel engines.
It is the first lube filter the company has released with NanoNet media, a polymeric nanotechnology-based synthetic media originally developed for Fleetguard fuel filter applications.
“Many of the characteristics that make NanoNet media so successful in fuel filter applications translate well to lube filters,” said Brad Long, senior engineering technical advisor, Cummins Filtration. “By pairing NanoNet with our proven StrataPore synthetic media, we can offer a lube filter that’s suited to meet the needs of today’s advanced engine platforms and lubricants as well as those coming in the near future.”
The NanoNet filtration media removes 98.7% of all particles.
“Our NanoNet media structure enables much higher cold-flow ability (than competitors) while retaining its high-efficiency characteristics in filtering lube oil,” Long said. “High cold-flow ability means less restriction and faster oil lubrication during cold start-up, and lubricating and protecting the vital engine components. Filter efficiency, capacity and cold-flow ability are all improved.”
The new lube filter is recommended for all Cummins ISX15 engines built after January 2010.
