Cummins Filtration unveils next-gen lube filter

Sept. 14, 2016
Cummins Filtration refined its Fleetguard LF14000NN combination lube filter for the arrival of newer engine platforms including Cummins X15 engines.

Cummins Filtration announced it has further refined its Fleetguard LF14000NN combination lube filter for the arrival of newer engine platforms including Cummins X15 engines, introduced last month.

“This breakthrough manufacturing technology maximizes the media area within the filter for optimum capacity and service life,” said Roma Fatima, lube product line manager, Cummins Filtration. “This eliminates the need for separate media sections without losing the combination performance of the different media grades.”

According to the company, the new Fleetguard LF14000NN further reduces flow restriction, “allowing the latest generation of diesel engines to operate more efficiently with less parasitic power loss, which can lead to better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions.” Depending on the quality of oil used, the LF14000NN is capable of longer service intervals, the company added.

“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.”
