The Kleenoil Bypass Filter System is a bypass oil filtration system that passes only a small portion of the total oil flow through a very dense filter cartridge at about 3 to 4 litres per minute. At this speed, it is possible to remove particles down to 1 micron (3 absolute) and remove 99.95% of all water, greatly decreasing wear and prolonging oil life. Kleenoil can eliminate water and particle contamination, extend oil life up to 5 times and hydraulic oil up to 10 times, reduce engine wear and component wear, dramatically reduce downtime, remove particles down to 1 microns (3 absolute), and is applicable to engines as well as hydraulic systems.

The Kleenoil filtration unit is made of cast aluminum with a galvanized steel mounting bracket. There are five basic sizes, which are installed according to the applications. It is connected to the engine lubricating oil circulating system in a bypass loop using high pressure braided hose and fittings to SAE standards.

The hydraulic bypass filtration unit can be fitted as single or multiple units, a dependent on the volume of oil in the system. This high pressure oil filter can be fitted on the bypass basis to hydraulic systems, compressors, or any system with oil at pressure up to 3000psi. The flow is controlled to approximately 4 litres per minute at 40psi. This rate is low enough to have negligible effect on the most system pressures, yet high enough to ensure that the oil is kept in an as new condition.

These remote mounted units give access for servicing and are available in different sizes for variable quantities of oil. These units can extend oil life up to 10 times its normal life reducing costly oil and filter changes. These filter units will remove particles down to less than 1 micron compared to standard in line OEM filter performance of between 25 & 40 microns. Tolerance levels of engine moving parts averages 3 microns.

The filters for the Kleenoil range of products absorb all free and emulsified water and gradually remove contaminant particles down to less than ISO 14/9 or NAS1638 class 6 equivalent. The filters extend oil life through the removal of the oxidization catalysts and at the same time extend the machine components life.

Benefits of Bypass Filtration Units

Eliminates Water

Water will always be present in oil, because of the heating and cooling of components in an engine. Diesel fuel used as the source of combustion contains sulfur. Small amounts of fuel will pass by the piston rings and end up in the oil. The sulfur will mix with the water resulting in sulfuric acids. Using the Kleenoil Bypass Filter System will remove all water down to less than 0.05%, reducing the formation of sulfuric acid that will cause accelerated wear to engine components.
