Kleenoil Filter Cartridge Service Information
The Kleenoil Filtration System was designed to ensure the effectiveness of continuously cleaning oil used in internal combustion engines and hydraulic systems. During field tests, the Kleenoil system was extensively used over a five year period in a wide range of engine and hydraulic applications.
The Kleenoil Filtration System removes dirt particles down to 1 micron, and absorbs 99.95% percent of all water, reducing the formation of sulphuric acid.
In addition to the information derived from an oil sample report, a technician can immediately make the following visual analysis after removing a filter cartridge:
- As a rule of thumb, a cartridge should be replaced after 250 hours of operation. Changing the Kleenoil Filter Cartridge require much less time that is required to perform a conventional fluid change. Simply remove the lid from the container to remove the old cartridge. A grey colour to the filter's outer mesh indicates fuel oil is present in the lubrication system.
- An implanted cartridge indicates that the cartridge has absorbed water particles.
- Do not attempt to clean out the filter canister as the inlet and outlet holes are only 1/8th of an inch in diameter. Places the used cartridge in the new cartridge's plastic bag and install a new o-ring and filter cartridge. Torque the lid.
- Start the engine and run it for a few minutes until the canister becomes warm from oil circulation; or test the oil pressure via the oil sample port.
- When taking an oil sample, be sure to clean the sample tube by running the oil through the tube before filling the sample bottle.
- We recommend a TBN or TAN test be carried out when considering extending engine oil life beyond 800 hours.
