INNOVATION IN OIL FILTERING
New oil filtering solutions consisting of synthetic fibres or cellulose and resin – these are the innovations developed by SOFIMA Filter to handle the problems created by the new «long life» oils, additives designed to increase the lubricating effect, the presence of soot and bio-diesel in the oil, the mineral and non-mineral oils and their degradation and contamination, and to keep in line with the strict Euro 6 regulations. The oil filters in the SOFIMA Aftermarket catalogue guarantee optimum filtering efficiency and can prevent the clogging of the filter. The targets envisaged by the regulations are reached with the design of «green» modules that reduce the environmental impact and the integration of several functions inside the module itself to reduce engine weight and dimensions. Engine performance is still maintained though, thanks to the high levels of permeability and thermal-chemical compatibility of the filtering materials, which therefore ensure low pressure and power drops.
