SPX Filtran says its proprietary DoubleDuty diesel engine oil filters replace conventional OE designs and extend oil service intervals by two to five times the normal rate. According to the company, DoubleDuty oil filters provide two levels of filtration, facilitating a cleaner lube system oil and removing contaminants more than 20 microns during full flow filtration; sub-micron particles such as soot are removed using integral bypass filtration.

The company says the complete filtration system is contained within the same size package as an OE design filter and uses the identical engine mounting; a single SAE-4 hose and fitting added to the existing engine port allows the super-clean oil processed to return directly to the engine without requiring a remote-mount bypass filter system. According to SPX Filtran, DoubleDuty improves lube oil filtration under harsh and demanding service conditions such as exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) systems that usually increase the level of soot contaminant in diesel engine oil.
