Cummins Filtration Inc. released a new lube filter for Cummins ISX15 diesel engines.
The Fleetguard LF14000NN is the company’s first lube filter with NanoNet media, a patented 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.”
Introduced by Cummins Filtration in 2012, NanoNet filtration media removes and retains 98.7% of all particles as small as four microns, according to the company.
The NanoNet and StrataPore media structures work together for particle removal, capacity and cold-flow ability in the case of the LF14000NN lube filter.
“Our NanoNet media structure enables much higher cold-flow ability, 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.”
Available at Cummins distributors and most OEM truck dealers, the LF14000NN lube filter is recommended for all Cummins ISX15 engines built after January 2010. The LF14000NN is suitable wherever an LF9080 was previously used and is the Cummins recommended upgrade performance filter.
