NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Cummins Filtration has refined its Fleetguard LF1400NN combination lube filter pairing together NanoNet and StrataPore media together using a state-of-the-art co-bonding lamination process to create a single filter element.
“This breakthrough manufacturing technology maximizes the media area within the filter for optimum capacity and service life,” said Roma Fatima, lube product line manager for Cummins Filtration. “This eliminates the need for separate media sections without losing the combination performance of the different media grades.”
The announcement of the new filter is in anticipation of the arrival of newer engine platforms, such as the Cummins X15, which was introduced last month.
Cummins Filtration says Fleetguard LF14000NN reduces flow restriction and, depending on the type of oil used, is capable of longer service intervals, helping to reduce operational costs.
The NanoNet media structure is designed to deliver a balance of efficiency, capacity and restriction for optimal engine performance and protection.
“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 for 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.”
