A recently developed oil filter produces a cyclone flow, a tangential flow path, to ensure a uniform flow around the filter element and drive heavy particles to the outside. This prevents the filter material from getting clogged too quickly. The particles collect in the groves of the redesigned filter bowl, from where they can be easily removed.
A pressure spring in the filter fixes the element to the grooves in the filter bowl bottom. This protects the filter element against uncontrolled movements by flow and vibration. Thanks to the newly designed shape of the filter bowl bottom, the medium goes through the lobes and also flows under the filter element. This evenly distributes pressure and effectively prevents an overburdening of the filter under varying operating conditions.
A differential pressure, contamination indicator measures the degree of pollution of the filter element. Based on the filter’s condition, a maintenance indicator on top of the housing tells when the filter needs changing and when it reaches critical operating condition. This lowers maintenance costs and increases operational safety. Filter elements are not being changed unnecessarily as would be the case in accordance with fixed maintenance intervals. In addition, the new 110 LEN filter series simplifies the replacement of the filter bowl. A pressure spring lifts the filter element off the centering pivot in the housing. The filter element’s 6-layer filter material is highly effective in its cleaning performance while minimizing pressure loss.
