Lube filters boost capacity, cut flow restriction
Jan 1, 2005 12:00 PM
Baldwin Filters has redesigned its dual-flow lube filters used on Cummins ISM, ISX, and Series 600 engines. The High Velocity Dual-Flow line of lube filters provides improved engine protection during high idle time, harsh operating conditions, and extended or prolonged service intervals.
The design has been upgraded to provide low initial restriction to protect engines during cold start-ups. This design includes a new, heavy-duty steel baseplate and a steel retainer welded to the media pack end cap, entrapping a post seal.
Patent-pending, the stacked element design uses a high-efficiency full-flow element with 100% synthetic Microglass' media and a partial-flow element with cellulose media designed to minimize flow restriction. A venturi-type cone balances the flow between the elements, taking advantage of the positive filtering properties of each, and maximizing filter performance from cold starts to normal operating conditions.
The new design departs from the previous serial-flow concept to employ a parallel-flow path that increases capacity by 10% and reduces initial flow restriction by 30%.
