Frams filter boasts time-release capability

Fram has released its new Wearguard filter with time release technology (TRTTM) for heavy-duty applications

Fram has released its new Wearguard filter with time release technology (TRTTM) for heavy-duty applications, which it said is designed to extend oil change intervals and reduce fleet maintenance costs by slowing oil degradation.

According to the company, Mack T-12 dynamometer tests showed a reduced top-ring and upper-rod-bearing weight loss, which can be attributed to the filter’s ability to retain the oil total base number longer, extending the oil’s useful life.

"The Fram Wearguard TRTTM filter releases a highly concentrated additive into the oil in a controlled manner, which helps combat harmful acids and provides protection against oxidation," said Kenny Cameron, channel marketing manager, Fram Filtration. "Because of this technology and following a regular regimen of oil analysis, fleets can maintain or even extend their oil drain intervals."

Wearguard TRTTM filters work with Mack ASET, Volvo VED12 and Detroit Diesel Series 60 engines. Filters for the Cummins ISX, ISM and Caterpillar C13, C15 Series will be available soon.
