Engine Fuel

Extend service intervals. OEI technology applies to natural gas, diesel fuel, and steam turbine engines. The OEI advantage is high holding capacity filters with continuous filtration in bypass.

Cummins Engine Diesel Fuel Test

The challenge was to exceed the filtration capability of the conventional fuel filter by installing a magnetic filter y-strainer on the fuel line of a 2006 Cummins 5.9 Liter Diesel Engine with 35,000 Miles (58,000 Km). Evaluate the ability for the magnetic filter to remove wear contamination down to 4 microns and below to prevent premature wear of the fuel system components: pumps, injectors, actuators, and cam shafts. The source of this contamination is the corrosion of transmission lines that carry the fuel to the end user.

Luxury Vessel Fuel Filtration

Capture wear contamination missed by the luxury vessel’s existing filtration system to prevent it from prematurely wearing on fuel system components.The source of this contamination is the corrosion of transmission lines that carry the fuel to the end user.

N-14 Cummins Engine Fuel Test

On Feb 1, 1999 we received the results of a 6-month fuel test conducted with CCA Truck Driver Training Ltd, in Calgary, Alberta. The test vehicle was a Kenworth truck equipped with an N-14 Cummins engine. The fuel filter was a Fleetguard filter part number FS1000. This is a fuel filter designed to remove contamination down to 8 microns. Once a month OEI obtained a mid-stream fuel sample. The first 4 fuel samples were obtained without a magnetic filter pad on the fuel filter. The last 2 fuel samples were taken with a Bear Trap magnetic filter pad attached to the exterior of the fuel filter.

Kenworth Truck 17 Years of Engine Protection

The challenge was to capture wear contamination missed by the trucks existing filtration system to prevent it from prematurely wearing on engine components. The main sources of engine oil contamination are air ingression, engine parts manufacturing, inherent wear particles in new oil, and break-in wear.

The 1000+ Hour Oil Change Interval Challenge

The transportation industry is looking for methods to safely extend maintenance periods to keep trucks on the road, which is good for business. The costs of fuel, new trucks and parts are always going up. Land star, a major transport provider with 8,000 transport units, relies on innovative technology to successfully compete in today’s tough transportation market. Al Jordan, a BCO and chief tester of new technology for Landstar, was asked to run the ADD-Vantage 9000 lube oil and fuel filters on his own C-15 Caterpillar engine for a year.

Transoceanic Yacht Fuel Pump Protection

The challenge was to capture wear contamination missed by the luxury vessel’s existing filtration system and prevent it from prematurely wearing on fuel system components.The source of this contamination is the corrosion of transmission lines that carry the fuel to the end user.

Transmasivo Public Transport Bus Engine Oil

Transmasivo, through the use of bio-fuels, was trying to reduce their emissions and wanted a filtration medium that would do the same while working efficiently on their bus line. Traditional filtration is incapable of removing contamination below 10 microns which causes damage to the fuel and oil system components, impedes the burn of the fuel, and increases emissions.

Mexican Navy Ship Engine Oil Filtration

The challenge was to capture wear contamination missed by the naval ship’s existing filtration system to prevent it from prematurely wearing on engine components such as bearings. The source of the contamination is air ingression, engine parts manufacturing, inherent wear particles in new oil, and break-in wear.

Transmasivo Municipal Transport Bus Fuel

The challenge was to meet international standards for fuel cleanliness. Dirty fuel causes premature wear of injectors, pumps and other components, inhibits fuel burn, and increases emissions.

Keeping Houston’s Emergency Vehicles in Service

The challenge was to remove sludge found in the city’s underground fuel depots to protect emergency vehicle engines (police cars, fire trucks, and maintenance equipment). The fuel depots are underground and made of a fiber glass composite with little to no ferrous metal.

Tesco Top Drive Diesel Fuel Filtration

Contaminated diesel fuel in Tesco’s Top Drive Rental Unit was causing premature wear of the fuel system components, reducing burn efficiency and increasing emissions. The source of this contamination is the corrosion and erosion of the transmission lines carrying the diesel fuel to the end user.

Generator Diesel Fuel Filtration

A container loading dock facility experienced frequent failures of the Merk Cummins CC 06 engines being used to power the electric motor generators in the cranes. High levels of ferrous metal contamination flowed through the existing conventional filters resulting in reduced operational life of injectors, actuators and camshafts. Further, this caused reduced fuel efficiency, increased emissions and increased fuel consumption.

Electric Motor Generators Fuel Filtration

The challenge was to reduce wear contamination in the generator’s diesel fuel that was causing damage to the injectors and pump. Conventional filters have been ineffective in capturing contamination under 20 microns due to worm holing and channeling.

OEI magnetic filters are designed for 95+% efficiency: they are optimized for fluid viscosity, flow volume, flow rate, temperature, mobility, and mounting requirements.
