Cummins Filtration unveils Next-Gen LF14000NN

The top section is the StrataPore media which handles approximately 60% of the total oil flow while bottom section is the multilayer NanoNet media filters the remaining 40%. Oil flows through both StrataPore and NanoNet portions of the filter, with StrataPore media providing low restriction and instantaneous protection from any damaging larger particles while the NanoNet media prevents accumulation of the finer particles in the oil.
