Particle Removal Test 

TITAN LABORATORIES, INC.

The subject Peterbilt engine (CAT C12) using a special Premo LT-30P oil filter system equipped with a 1.2 micron filter.  A baseline particle test was performed after 15,000 miles as indicated on the Analysis Report dated 4/11/01.  Magna-Guard Oil Filter Magnets were inserted into the oil filter.  After an additional 15,000 miles, the second particle test dated 4/30/01 was performed.  Please note the dynamic improvement in particle reduction (PPM), especially in the nonferrous materials removed.  All changes are indicated by percentages.

Tests conducted by:
Titan Laboratories, 1380 Zuni Street, PO Box 40567, Denver, CO 80204

Samples taken 4/6/01 & 4/25/01 respectively.
Oil analysis report measuring parts per million (PPM), particle size 0.5 microns.

As demonstrated by SAE Technical Papers, the benefits of oil particle reduction in the 10 micron range are:

  • 8 to 14 times reduction in engine wear
  • Up to 2 times increase in oil service life
  • Up to 2 times increase in filter service life
  • Up to 5% improvement in fuel economy

The ultimate benefits are greater diesel engine performance and extended life with lower operating costs.

Magna-Guard's Oil Filter Magnet added to any filter controls particle contamination down to 0.5-microns.  This is a 20-times improvement in particle control as compared to the SAE Technical Papers.

These tests were provided by Jim Harris of Titan International.  He would be glad to answer any specific questions concerning these tests and his filtration system. He can be reached at 800-875-8751.
