Perkins Expands Filter Range

Perkins said its new Ecoplus oil filter has been fitted on new EU Stage 5 Perkins Syncro 3.6 and 2.8 liter engines. Previously utilizing a spin-on oil filter across its engine range, Perkins has taken the opportunity to upgrade the filter as part of the design work undertaken on the new engine range.

As with all Perkins Ecoplus filters, the oil filter now includes a replaceable element that fits inside the filter housing on the machine. This reduces waste as there is no metal canister to dispose of.

 A benefit for users is the clean change that’s now possible, thanks to a modification to the angle of the filter. The new filter is upright which makes it easier to access and as soon as the cap is opened the oil automatically drains back into the block, Perkins said.

“The new oil filters are really easy to change,” Matt O’Sullivan, aftermarket general manager said. “You just unscrew the top cover using the 38 mm nut – no special tooling is required, lift out the cap and element and click the new filter back in place.”

To maintain the integrity of the filter Perkins said it has used high quality media inside the filter, plus the filter also includes a better bypass valve now sited in the filter housing, so it’s less likely to open inappropriately. Plus, the engine will prime more quickly as the filter stays full of oil, all of which protects the engine at initial start-up.

The oil filter also employs features from other models in Ecoplus range including; spiral roving and acrylic beading to ensure maximum filtration surface area, and urethane molded end-caps to prevent fluid escaping round the filter edge. These features ensure fast oil circulation on engine start to protect sensitive components such as turbochargers, and efficient filtration through the service life, Perkins said.

The Ecoplus filters are manufactured at Perkins dedicated manufacturing facilities. More than half of Perkins engines currently in production are fitted with Ecoplus fuel filters.

The new Perkins Ecoplus oil filters will be available from the Perkins distribution network and for those in the UK, Ireland and USA, through the Perkins shop.
