According to the company, the new media provide an exceptional level of efficiency and harmful particulate removal, and mark the first time that a nanotechnology-based filtration media has been commercially developed for fuel filtration products within the industry.
Joseph Saoud, president – Cummins Filtration said the new development provides the best technology for maximum filtration efficiency with minimal flow restriction.
“In turn this creates greater up-time by extending service intervals and optimizing filter life,” he says. “This latest in Fleetguard’s proprietary advanced filter media family is developed to deliver unmatched protection and superior up-time for customers while lowering total cost of ownership.”
NanoNet fuel filtration products exhibit between 7 and 13 times greater retention of harmful particles within the fuel filtration media during engine vibration and fuel surge than competitors, Cummins says. Fuel surge results in a fluctuation of fuel flow within the system whenever the engine’s output is increased or decreased, the company says.
The nanotechnology-based NanoNet filtration media is available on the following Cummins Filtration FleetGuard products: FF5810; FF5811; FF5812; FF5813; FF5814; FF5815; FF5816; FF6817; FF5819; FF5823; FF53093; FS53001 and FS53002.
