Cummins Filtration Inc announced the release of the Fleetguard LF14000NN lube filter for Cummins ISX15 diesel engines during the Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) 2015 Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition from February 16 through 19 in Nashville TN.
The LF14000NN (Cummins part number 4367100) is the company’s first lube filter with NanoNet media, a patented polymeric nanotechnology-based synthetic media originally developed for Fleetguard fuel filter applications. Cummins Filtration technology developments, found first in the LF14000NN, bring a new level of lube filter performance to the heavy-duty diesel engine market.
“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.”
Introduced by Cummins Filtration in 2012, NanoNet filtration media removes and retains 98.7% of all particles as small as 4 microns (12 times smaller than the smallest particle visible to the human eye). The 100% synthetic, multi-layer polymer design is thinner than a dime yet gives the media a robust structure, allowing for maximum contaminant-holding capacity over the course of the filter’s service life.
In the case of the LF14000NN lube filter, the NanoNet and StrataPore media structures work together for best-in-class particle removal, capacity, and cold-flow ability to give uncompromising protection and filter life for today’s ISX engines.
Available at Cummins distributors and most OEM truck dealers, the LF14000NN lube filter is recommended for all Cummins ISX15 engines built after January 2010. The LF14000NN is suitable wherever an LF9080 was previously used and is the Cummins recommended upgrade performance filter.
