Puradyn Filter Technologies, which manufactures bypass oil filtration systems for trucks, has reached an agreement that will have Mack Trucks Inc. offer its oil filtration system as an aftermarket option through participating Mack dealers in the U.S.

Boynton Beach, FL-based Puradyn said its system can be installed on any internal combustion engine or hydraulic equipment. According to the company, the system has been designed to extend oil drain intervals and, in some cases, even eliminate their need.

"We are pleased that Mack Trucks has agreed to make our systems available to their customers driving Class 7 and Class 8 trucks,” said Kevin Kroger, Puradyn president & COO. “With stricter gaseous emission standards being introduced in 2002 and beyond, oil filtration will become an ever-growing concern due to the higher soot levels created by nitrous oxide reductions. Our system will help Mack Trucks meet these requirements and reduce the oil filtration concerns of their customers," he added.
