Perkins has extended its Perkins® Ecoplus range of filters with the addition of a newly designed oil filter. The Perkins Ecoplus oil filter has been fitted on the new EU Stage V Perkins® Syncro 3.6 and 2.8 liter engines. Previously utilizing a spin-on oil filter across its engine range, Perkins has taken the opportunity to upgrade the filter as part of the design work undertaken on the new engine range. The oil filter now includes a replaceable element that fits inside the filter housing on the machine. This reduces waste as there is no metal canister to dispose of, compared to the typical spin-on filter. An immediate benefit for customers is the clean change that’s now possible, thanks to a modification to the angle of the filter. The new filter is upright, which makes it easier to access, and as soon as the cap is opened the oil automatically drains back into the block. The filter also includes a better bypass valve now sited in the filter housing, so it’s less likely to open inappropriately and the engine will prime more quickly as the filter stays full of oil, all of which protects the engine at initial start-up. The oil filter also features spiral roving and acrylic beading to ensure maximum filtration surface area, and urethane molded end-caps to prevent fluid escaping round the filter edge. These features ensure fast oil circulation on engine start to protect sensitive components such as turbochargers, and efficient filtration through the service life.
