The CJC® Lube Oil Filter prolonged the oil lifetime up to 1,640 operating hours. Compared to prior, the oil lifetime is 3,5 times longer, an increase of ≈ 66.46%.
When installing the CJC® Lube Oil Filter a small extra oil volume is necessary to fill the filter housings and pipes. To evaluate the impact of the extra oil volume without filtration to the oil’s lifetime, the inner components of the filter housings were removed and the filter inserts were bypassed. The oil lifetime were prolonged up to 1,236 operating hours. Compared to prior, the oil lifetime is 2.5 times longer, an increase of ≈ 55.5%.
The CJC® Lube Oil Filter achieved after re-mounting the inner components and replacing the used CJC® Fine and Depth Filter Inserts an oil lifetime of 2,275 operating hours. Compared to prior, the oil lifetime is 4.5 times longer, an increase of ≈ 75.82%.
The operator must have changed the oil only due to the oxidation rate. All other oil condition values were well below the limitation.
The oil samples were analysed by Spectro Oil in the United Kingdom. The independent oil laboratory has analysed the gas engine oil (GEO) from Mobil Oil Danmark A/S since 1997.
