How technology impacts diesel engine filtration

How technology impacts diesel engine filtration

This time, I don’t just mean digital technology. The continued adoption of API FA-4 (as well as the switch to CK-4) engine oil is also a prime diesel engine technology change, in liquid form. We’ve also seen increasingly computer-driven engine operation that increased an engine’s flexibility within applications. As diesel engine technology has evolved, so too has its filtration needs and recommendations be it oil, fuel or air filtration.

To get a sense for how much diesel engine filtration needs have shifted over the model years, I connected with Jay Anderson, national product trainer for Wix Filters. Anderson discusses the most overlooked heavy-duty truck maintenance practices, the service impact of new engine oil API categories and connected telematics solutions that help fleets understand filtration needs. Watch the video above for all of Anderson’s insight.
