Which AMSOIL Products Are Recommended
For Your Vehicles?
Quality Filtration is Equally
as Important as Quality Lubrication
are often overlooked, but they are integral to keeping oil
clean and performing at its best.
Technical Product Manager,
said that motor oil is the lifeblood of the engine. We depend
on it to prevent wear, maintain cleanliness, minimize operating
temperature and act as a seal. Should the oil become contaminated,
its ability to perform these tasks can be greatly impaired. Dirty oil can cause piston ring wear,
leading to increased oil consumption, and it can also accelerate
wear in bearings and cylinders. Engine contaminants cannot be eliminated, but they can be controlled with proper
filtration. Proper filtration helps keep oil clean and flowing
freely, ensuring the lubricant will be able to perform its
necessary tasks continuously.
At a basic level,
all filters are designed to separate solid particles from
air or fluid and keep them from entering into places where
they are not wanted. Think about your morning coffee and what
would happen if the coffee filter failed to keep the coffee
grounds out of the brewed beverage. You would have very thick
and sludgy coffee, not unlike the sludge that can build up
in engines with severely contaminated motor oil. In the same
way as coffee filters keep grounds out of your java, oil filters
capture contaminant particles within the oil to prevent them
from causing engine wear. This is important because contaminated
oil can reduce engine life from 60 to 80 percent. You probably can see how a poorly designed filter could lead
to an engine filled with gunk.
filters and filter performance at your next barbeque, make
sure you talk about the four main criteria: flow, efficiency,
capacity and particle size. Proper flow is important so oil
can get to critical parts of the engine. If the filter creates
an abnormal restriction of oil flow, it can lead to oil starvation
and catastrophic engine damage. Efficiency is a measure of a filter's ability to adequately remove
contaminants of a particular size that may critically harm
the application. The greater the efficiency, the better that
filter is at removing contaminant particles. Capacity describes
the amount of contaminants a filter can hold and still flow
oil properly. Capacity is described as the service interval
or useful life of the filter.
Most of these particles
are smaller than what is visible with the human eye. Particles
of greatest concern for most applications are 5-25 microns,
which is smaller than the diameter of a human hair. Generally,
if a filter has large openings, like a window screen, it will
have poor efficiency but will flow very well. As screen holes
get smaller, more small particles will get caught in the screen.
The trade-off is that flow will be restricted. Balancing these
two design features is an essential part of filter design.
The type of filter
media used in a filter has a big impact on performance. Four
major types exist in today's marketplace, including
open-celled foam, cellulose, cellulose/synthetic composite
and full synthetic. Synthetic filter media has several advantages
over the other filter media materials. Synthetic media has
higher capacity and can be modified to a wide range of efficiencies.
Synthetic media also removes smaller contaminant particle
sizes, and is suitable for extended service intervals because
of the increased capacity for contaminants. It is also typically
more durable thanother filter media, like paper-based materials
that use sticky resins to keep fibers from falling apart over
time. Cellulose media used in lower-quality filters have larger
fibers and bigger holes that let more contaminants pass through the filter. Synthetic filter media is chemically
manufactured rather than derived from a tree, like paper,
so the fibers are much smaller and specifically designed to
capture smaller particles while still keeping good flow of
oil through your engine. Ah, the magic of synthetic materials.
synthetic media into AMSOIL Ea® Filters, which rank among
the highest-efficiency filters available. Better filtration
equals reduced engine wear. In addition, the extra capacity
to hold more contaminants means they keep filtering over extended
intervals. When used in conjunction with AMSOIL synthetic
motor oil, AMSOIL Ea Oil Filters designated with product code
EaO are guaranteed for 25,000 miles/ one year (15,000 miles/one
year in severe service). Smaller Ea Oil Filters designated
with product code Ea15K are guaranteed for 15,000 miles/one
year in normal and severe service. Good oil and good filtration
go hand in hand, and AMSOIL Dealers have the products to offer
the best of both to their customers. Published, AMSOIL Magazine

synthetic motor oils are formulated to surpass engine test
specifications, offering protection far greater than competing
motor oils for extended drain intervals. Most synthetic oil
manufacturers make no claim to extended drain intervals, deferring
to the maintenance schedule provided by the vehicle manufacturer.
With its unparalleled oil and warranty program, AMSOIL offers
consumers unprecedented protection and economics.
More than 20 years
ago, AMSOIL began using the NOACK volatility test as a comparison
tool and measurement of quality. Back then, nearly every oil
tested side-by-side with AMSOIL synthetic motor oils failed,
and those that passed barely squeaked by. Other oil companies
paid no attention to NOACK results until Ford Motor Company
made it a requirement for service fill oils, validating what
AMSOIL had said all along.
NOACK Volatility Test
Volatility Test determines the evaporation loss
of lubricants in high temperature service. The more
motor oils vaporize, the thicker and heavier they become,
contributing to poor circulation, reduced fuel economy
and increased oil consumption, wear and emissions. AMSOIL
Synthetic Motor Oil resists high temperature volatization
better than other motor oils. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor
Oil maintains peak fuel efficiency and reduces oil consumption
