How you can maximize the lifetime of your oil filling and engine components

Gas engine oil filtration: CJC® Lube Oil Filter for gas engines

Gas engine oil filtration and care is enormously crucial if you …

  • worry about the frequent oil re-fillings and oil changes because limit values of the engine oil are reached quickly.

  • are unsatisfied because weary engine components lead to permanent cost-intensive maintenance services.

  • want to optimize your gas engines’ reliability, availability, and performance — for quick ROI.

Your solution for gas engines: CJC® Lube Oil Filter for the off-line circuit. Achieve the highest oil cleanliness for maximum protection of the lube oil, additives and engine — quick, efficient and cost-optimal.

The challenge: contaminated and quickly ageing gas engine oil

The engine oil in gas engines is permanently heavily loaded. Oxidative ageing processes, thermal load and direct contact with harmful polluted blow-by gases stress these lube oils rigorously. But also soot, metal particles, dust and humidity can ingress the oil system, partly depending on operating and engine conditions and the load. These processes accelerate each other and lead to premature base oil degradation and increased additive depletion, even when using oxidation-resistant synthetic oils. Contaminated and quickly ageing engine oil has severe consequences for the lifetime of components, engine and, therefore, the ecological and economical operation:

Damages and consequences of contaminated and ageing gas engine oil

gas engine oil filtration and care, gas engines, lubrication and wear

High operating temperatures, wear particles (iron, copper, aluminium, tin etc.), soot and water in the engine oil accelerate the oil oxidation and the additive depletion. In the course of the oil oxidation, the engine oil‘s viscosity and acid number increase. Sludge and residues deposit within the engine. Aggressive acids caused by the entering blow-by gases intensify acidification, primarily when the engine is operated with bio, sewage and landfill gas or sulphurous fuels.

Acids and water in the engine oil lead to corrosion and rust on the metal surfaces. Especially the combination of acids and water is highly corrosive. Abrasive rust particles damage surfaces and moving components and block narrow passages. Corrosion can also result in leakages so that cooling water and anti-freeze fluids can contaminate the engine oil – immediate consequences for the engine: jelly-like thickening of the oil, poor lubrication, clogged in-line filter, increased risk of foam and glycol-acids.

Particles, water and oxidation residues in the engine oil lead to wear, corrosion, sludge, and varnish-like deposits on all oil lubricated engine components – shafts, bearings, cylinders, and pistons. Also, soot from the fuel combustion can enter the oil system. When the soot load reaches a limit, the dispersancy gets lost, and the soot particles agglomerate, precipitate and deposit in the engine. Furthermore, the viscosity increases and thickens the engine oil, which is problematic for cold-starts.

Existing oil filters clog rapidly because of the low dirt holding capacity and must be changed frequently.

Contaminants, oxidation residues and an increased viscosity impair the air release property. Air bubbles in the engine oil entrain poorly, and the risk of foam increases resulting in a lack of lubrication for engine components.

The conventional method

Operators control the engine oil condition periodically to ensure the reliable operation of the gas engines. When the oil draws near a critical limit value, the oil sump is partly replaced (bleed-and-feed) or completely changed. But that doesn‘t reduce the impact on the engine oil. On the one hand, the newly filled-in oil contaminates within the shortest time due to deposits and dilution with dirty residual oil. On the other hand, contaminants, oxidative processes and acid stress unimpeded the engine oil‘s lubrication properties and the long-term effects of additives, which shorten the lifetime of the oil filling. That finally results only in high oil consumption. With us, however, this is more ecological and economical.

Your solution: Efficient care of the gas engine oil

Efficient engine oil care means that particles, water, oxidation residues and acids are continuously removed from the engine oil (24/7). Only with consistently clean and dry engine lube oil …

  • you achieve a longer lifetime for your oil filling, protecting your budget and simultaneously resources.

  • ensure maximum wear protection and save time and cost for maintenance and revisions.

  • minimize unscheduled failures for higher reliability and availability of your gas engines.

  • protect the in-line oil filter of your gas engine. Therefore the filter clogs and has to be replaced less frequently.

  • achieve the highest possible engine cleanliness for optimum performance and less cleaning expenditure.

CJC® Lube Oil Filter for efficient care and filtration of gas engine oil

CJC® Schmierölfilter für die Filtration, Trocknung und Pflege von Gasmotorenöl sorgen für höchste Ölreinheit. Offer quick, persistent and cost-optimal highest protection for your oil filling and gas engine.

The integrated pump enables the installation in a separate circuit and, therefore, continuous depth filtration and care of the engine oil (24/7). The filter inlet is connected diagonally to the oil sump, and the filter outlet is connected higher up — as far away as possible from the filter inlet. The operation, filter insert replacement and maintenance are independent of the engine operation.

The CJC® Lube Oil Filter removes all impurities:

Oxidation residues and acids

for persistent stable oxidation rate, TAN and TBN

Wear particles, soot and insoluble

for the highest oil cleanliness

Water – free, emulsified and dissolved

for water content well below the saturation limit of the oil

The CJC® Lube Oil Filter and the integrated CJC® Fine Filter Inserts are due to the variety of combinations and the modular design optimal configurable to the specific conditions of the various gas engines, also when operated with special fuels such as bio, sewage and landfill gas.

CJC® Fine Filter Inserts are depth filters with a filtration degree of 3 µm absolute and a retention rate of < 1 µm. The whole volume of the insert is made of numerous finely ramified fibres and offers an outer surface and, in addition, an inner surface – from 120 up to 150 m² per gram. That enables the extremely high dirt holding capacity – the higher, the longer the lifetime of the filter inserts.

The fact is that our dirt holding capacities are market leaders.

CJC® Lube Oil Filters are equipped with sensors for the automatic online monitoring of the filter condition (filter pressure). Up to three additional sensors for oil humidity, temperature and oxidation are implementable by default. You can configure alert limits and warnings to prematurely detect deviations from normal conditions and counteract them.
Optional further sensors can be supplemented to get more information about the oil condition. They deliver detailed data in real-time and allow conclusions about the engine condition because of the high data density.
Our intuitive operable cloud applications have a clearly-arranged dashboard to visualise the sensor data. The highly developed algorithms integrated into the premium monitoring package automatically evaluate and interpret the data Ideal for critical gas engines, where a failure quickly has costly consequences.
