Lube oil contamination accounts for seventy to eighty percent
of all failures and wear problems. The wear process promoted by
oil contamination leads to diminished fuel efficiency,
shorter useful oil service life, increased engine down
time, reduced component life, loss of engine
performance, and an overall increase in operating costs.
Contaminant particles responsible for this damage are in
the size range of the dynamic lubricant films separating moving
engine component surfaces... 10 microns and smaller.
Typically these particles pass through the oil filter and
continue to build up in the oil system. By making simultaneous
contact with opposing surfaces these harmful particles focus the
load onto a small area, degrading the surface and perpetuating a
There are three categories of oil contaminates active in the
engine wear process:
1. Solid particles, including wear debris and soot, which
damage mechanical components and catalyze lubricant breakdown;
2. Liquid contaminates, including fuel and water, which corrode
metals and hinder the functioning of lubricants; and
3. Gaseous contaminants, including acidic combustion products,
which corrode component surfaces and degrade the oil.
The predominant harmful impurities in engine oil are
metallic particles and metal oxides. Typically there are
well over 10,000 contaminant particles per milliliter of lube
oil. Furthermore, approximately 90% of these particles are
less than 10-microns in size. It's important to note that
these particles generate about 3.5-times more wear than
particles greater than 10-microns in size. This wear occurs
because these particles are the size of, or slightly larger than
the dynamic oil films separating opposing surfaces.
Numerous studies have established a number of important
points regarding the relationship between lube oil contamination
and engine wear.
In the following SAE Paper 881827 substituting a standard 20-30
micron filter with a 10-micron filter resulted in:
1. A reduced concentration of contaminant particles by a
factor of 10-15 times;
2. A reduction in the four major wear metals monitored;
3. The filter was capable of operating more than twice the
recommended service life; and
4. The lube oil service life to be more than doubled without
adverse engine wear or lubricant degradation.
In summary, controlling particle contamination in the 1-10
micron size range retards the chain-reaction-of-wear, resulting
in significant reductions in component wear and lubricant
breakdown. The beneficial consequences include greater component
life and reliability, increased oil change intervals, increased
fuel efficiency, and a reduction in overall maintenance costs.
Diesel Component Wear Test
on DDA 6V-53T Engine
(Performed by AC Delco Division of General Motors / GM)
Five critical component areas were tested:
1. Upper & Lower rod bearings.
2. Slipper bushings.
3. Compression & oil piston rings.
4. Piston rings.
5. The main bearings.
A. Diesel Engine Wear and Fuel Economy:
A study of twenty-two 6-cylindar diesel engines performed by
Fodor & Ling
(affiliated with the Research Institute of Automotive
Industry-Budapest and the Rensselaer
Conclusion: Control of particles in the 3-10 micron range
had the greatest affect in reducing engine wear.
It was found reducing contamination from 0.016% by weight
(standard oil filter) to 0.0025% by weight (extended filter / 10
micron control), reduced engine wear by a factor of 14. Most
significantly, oil friction was reduced by 2.9% compared to
operating with clean oil. This reduction was equated to an
increase in fuel economy of about 4%. As a comparison, this
significantly exceeds the 0.6 - 0.9% fuel economy gain
experienced when converting from SAE 40 to multi grade lube oil.
B. Survey of Diesel Engine Oil Contamination Levels
Samples of 138 engines operating with standard paper filter
were compared to 117 engines operating with upgraded 10-micron
Based on the relationship difference between dynamic oil
film and size of wear generating particles, the most important
particle size range is 0-10 microns.
1. Diesel engine lube oil contamination causes wear of engine
components. Wear of these components leads to loss of
performance, increased maintenance and overhaul cost, lower fuel
efficiency, and shorter lube oil service life.
2. There is a fundamental relationship between the size of
contaminate particles and the thickness of the dynamic oil films
developed between moving surfaces of active components.
Particles the size of, or smaller than, the oil film thickness
cause wear of components. By making simultaneous contact with
both surfaces, these particles focus the load onto a small
region of the surface, resulting in surface pitting, plowing,
3. The average oil film thickness associated with the majority
of diesel engine components is in the 7 to 10 micron size
domain. This is the size range of the most damaging contaminant
particles. In addition, mechanical stress is accentuated during
the high-load/thinner oil film phase of the engine cycle. In
order to minimize engine wear, emphasis must, therefore, be
placed on controlling particles in the 10-micron size domain and
4. Oil contamination causes component wear and in return,
generates more contamination. This is the
chain-reaction-of-wear. If uncontrolled, this process results in
an enormous number of oil suspended particles. The consequences
of uncontrolled chain-reaction-of-wear are:
a) Higher friction, leading to high fuel consumption.
b) Loss of material from sliding and rolling contacts, resulting
in misalignment, vibration, and component replacement.
c) Opening of piston dynamic sealing surfaces, leading to loss
of compression, further fuel consumption, and contaminant
ingestion from the environment.
d) The accumulation of soot and combustion products in the lube
oil and the formation of lubricant breakdown varnishes and
sludge leading to reduced oil service life.
5. The significance of proliferating particles in the
10-micron range domain is phenomenal. Each grain of
contaminant (wear debris, mineral grain, metallic oxide)
produces a small but finite amount of friction, abrasive wear,
and catalytic oil breakdown. Because of the vast number of
harmful particles, the total effect of this multitude is
abbreviated oil life, substantially higher engine friction, and
propagation of engine wear
6. The benefits of controlling oil cleanliness levels to the
order of 100-1000 particles /ml (10 times reduction) are:
a) An 8 to 14 times reduction in engine wear.
b) Up to 2 times increase in oil service life.
c) Up to 2 times increase in filter service life.
d) Up to 5% improvement in fuel economy.
The ultimate benefits are greater diesel engine
performance over extended life with lower operating cost.
Independent Laboratory Test
by Titan Labs
The subject was a Peterbuilt engine (CAT C12) using a Premo
LT-30P oil filter system equipped with a 1.2 micron filter. A
baseline test was performed at an interval of 15,000 miles as
indicated on the Analysis Report dated 4/11/01. Ceramic Oil
Filter Magnets were then inserted into the oil filter. After
15,000 miles, the second test was performed on 4/30/01.
Please note the dynamic improvement in ferrous particle
reduction (in PPM), but also non-ferrous materials/contaminants
by the process of heterocoagulation. Final column is percent
