The importance of oil filtration
Oil filters are a crucial element to the smooth running of your engine.
What is an oil filter
An oil filter is an important part of your engine and its job is to remove all impurities and tiny particles that could be damaging essential parts of machinery.
How an oil filter works
The oil filter helps remove contaminants from your engine’s oil that can accumulate over time.
When bits of debris and small stones get in to your oil stream they can get stuck and stop vital parts of your engine working such as a piston from moving or a valve from closing.
This can equate to the overall performance of your engine’s efficiency and it could be costly to correct.
Oil filters prevent this from happening, the filter helps clean the oil removing the contaminants before it enters the moving parts of the engine.
Overtime time your oil filter will attract more dust and dirt resulting in clogging. If your filter becomes to blocked, you run the risks of impurities entering important parts of your engine and lead to reduced oil pressure.
It is extremely important to change your oil filter on a regular basis and keep your machine running as efficiently as possible.
Choosing the right oil filter
Choosing the correct oil filter for your machine is of the utmost importance.
Many oil filters look the same but differences such as size, thread types can determine whether your filter is correct or not.
The best way to find the correct filter for your machine is to use a parts catalogue, or cross reference finder.
The Rico Europe cross reference search is a great tool to help you find the correct oil filter of your machine.
