micfil filters offer up to 20 times higher filter performance than standard filters
Although the lubricating gaps in the engine have a size of approx. 1.5 to 10 µm (µm = micron), the usual standard oil filters only have a filter performance of up to approx. 10 µm.
International studies prove that the abrasion of particles in lubricating gap sizes is about three and a half times higher than that of particles above 10 µm. Standard filtration is therefore not sufficient.
During an oil change, part (approx. 15%) of the contaminated oil remains in the engine and the number of dirt and abrasion particles increases steadily during operation. The engine runs constantly in contaminated oil and solid particles cause further abrasion. Standard filters are also not able to filter out water, which can lead to acid formation.
The micfil ultra fine filter has a filter performance that is approx. 20 times higher than that of standard filters. Dirt, combustion, oxidation and abrasion particles of up to 0.5 µm causing abrasion are constantly filtered out of the oil.
The smaller particles remaining in the oil do not cause any damage; on the contrary, they increase the load-bearing capacity (lubricity) and the thermal load-bearing capacity of the oil.
The high-performance filter element, which consists mainly of cellulose, binds water and bacteria and thus counteracts acid formation and protects the alkaline reserve in the oil.
