Most major automakers agree: that the old adage that you should change your car's/truck's oil every 3,000 miles is outdated, and even 5,000 miles may be too often. Sadly some are not paying attention and are wasting resources and money by changing oil too soon.
Oil life guidelines due to higher oil quality standards from many manufactures now recommended oil change interval from 5,000 miles to 7,500 but what if you could go to 15,000 with no engine damage?
Today's engines have has what is called a full-flow oil filter. These filters generally filter to 25 microns. A micron, short for micrometer, is a unit of measurement equal to one millionth of a meter. A micron is actually 0.000039 of an inch...the period at the end of this sentence is about 397 microns.
The average oil film thickness between loaded components in your engine is between 5 and 20 microns. According to the SAE, particles as small as four microns can cause up to 77% of engine wear.
The challenge has been to extend engine life beyond the last payment...what if you could double your engine life?
If you expected old technology to achieve this goal your plan is flawed from the start. New technology must be looked at.
Dieselcraft Division of Magnum Group LLC of Auburn California has developed the OC-25 Cyclone Series Centrifuge for all internal combustion gas and diesel engines. The OC-25 Centrifuge cleans engine oil by generating a centrifugal force which is 2,000 times greater than gravity. Engine oil pressure spins the centrifuge rotor at a rate up to 6,000 rpm's. That force separates the solid contaminates from the main oil supply. The solids are stuck to the inside of the rotor cover, which is easily cleaned with a paper towel…no filter to dispose of.
The OC-25 has over 5 times the debris-holding capacity plus is 100 times more efficient than any filters on the market. This is because the OC-25 Centrifuge removes dirt and wear particles from the oil flow all together. Contaminant particles as low as 1/10th of 1 micron are removed, eliminating the wear and tear on close tolerance metal parts by at least 50%.
Filters take out solids and hold them from circulating further but plug, reduce oil flow and eventually reach the point of not working. The cleaning efficiency remains constant in an OC-25 Centrifuge where in any standard filter efficiency starts to drop off the minute you install it.
Motor oil does not wear out in 7,500 or even 15,000 miles if it is just dirty. If you are removing wear particles, oil change intervals can be at least doubled if not more.
Look at the economics of this on the level of corporate and government fleets, change the oil at 15,000 mile not at 7,500. You have cut oil consumption by 50%. The state of California at last count has 70,000 vehicles with 70,000 filters that have to be changed and recycled and uses over 200,000 gallons of oil per year. Extend oil life and cut the annual expenditures by 50%...no small amount.
