The Fleetguard LF14000NN combination lube filter is designed for the arrival of newer engine platforms, including Cummins X15 engines.
The Fleetguard LF14000NN uses a co-bonding lamination process that pairs NanoNet and StrataPore media together to create a single filter element, eliminating the need for separate media sections without losing the combination performance of the different media grades, the company says. Also, the filter further reduces flow restriction, allowing the latest generation of diesel engines to operate more efficiently with less parasitic power loss. Depending on the quality of oil used, the LF14000NN is capable of longer service intervals, according to Cummins.
The StrataPore media handles approximately 60 percent of the total oil flow, and the multilayer NanoNet media filters the remaining percent. Oil flows through both StrataPore and NanoNet portions of the filter, with StrataPore media providing low restriction and instantaneous protection from any damaging larger particles while the NanoNet media prevents accumulation of the finer particles in the oil.
