LAS VEGAS. A diesel fuel filter that removes 95% of emulsified water and an air filter with nanotech media for high-dust conditions were introduced by Luber-finer at Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week
The MP995 fuel filter is designed to protect common rail high-pressure fuel injection systems from clogging and damage caused by water and particulates common with ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD) and biodiesel blends
Featuring a microglass/synthetic laminate media, the new fuel filter is 95% efficient at removing emulsified water and 99.5% efficient at trapping particulates as small as 4 microns, according to Luber-finer. Initial applications include Cummins ISL, ISM, ISC and IXL engines.
The new MXM Nanotech Air Filter is designed for off-road and other high-dust applications. It replaces the more common cellulose media with a nano fiber surface over a synthetic fiber layer, providing overall efficiency of 99.85%, according to the company.
It will be available for a wide range of vocational trucks including the Mack Granite Series, the International 7000 Series, and trucks powered by the Detroit Diesel 60 Series.
Both new filters will be available in March.
