Cummins Refines Lube Filter for Newer Engines

Order Reprints

Cummins Filtration has refined its Fleetguard LF14000NN combination lube filter for its newer engine platforms including Cummins X15 engines, introduced in August.

The new Fleetguard LF14000NN uses a co-bonding lamination process that pairs NanoNet and StrataPore media together to create a single filter element.

The filter 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 which can help fleets lower their operating costs on replacement filters over the course of an engine’s life. The NanoNet media structure is engineered for improved efficiency, capacity, and restriction for optimal engine performance and protection.
