What are the benefits of oil analysis?
A successful oil analysis program will help you:
- Monitor equipment wear and indicate possible problem areas before they are otherwise noticed;
- Safely and accurately determine the suitability of oil for further use;
- Determine the cleanliness of the oil;
- Determine when to change the USPI filter elements.
What is the difference between a depth filter and a surface filter?
Surface filters collect particles on the filter medium surface. These filters only capture particles larger than the pore size (typically 20-40 microns) and the filter will “blind off” and cease filtering when the relatively small surface area is loaded. Depth filtration takes place throughout the filter media. USPI depth filters collect much greater volumes of particulate in the media (approximately 12 pounds), allow much finer filtration (1-3 microns), and the filter does not “blind off” suddenly as it becomes loaded. Also, surface filters do not effectively remove water, while USPI depth filters remove about 5 quarts of water each.
