Perkins Ecoplus oil filters enable a quick and clean change

man woking on engine filter
As with all Perkins Ecoplus filters, the oil filter now includes a replaceable element that fits inside the filter housing on the machine.

Perkins has extended its Perkins Ecoplus range of filters with the addition of a newly designed oil filter.

The Perkins Ecoplus oil filter has been fitted on the new EU Stage V Perkins Syncro 3.6 and 2.8 litre engines. Previously utilizing a spin-on oil filter across its engine range, Perkins has taken the opportunity to upgrade the filter as part of the design work undertaken on the new engine range.

As with all Perkins Ecoplus filters, the oil filter now includes a replaceable element that fits inside the filter housing on the machine. This reduces waste as there is no metal canister to dispose of, compared to the typical spin-on filter.

An immediate benefit for customers is the clean change that's now possible, thanks to a modification to the angle of the filter. The new filter is upright which makes it easier to access and as soon as the cap is opened the oil automatically drains back into the block.

"The new oil filters are really easy to change," Matt O'Sullivan, aftermarket general manager said. "You just unscrew the top cover using the 38 mm nut – no special tooling is required, lift out the cap and element and click the new filter back in place. It's as simple as that." 

The new Perkins Ecoplus oil filters will be available from the Perkins distribution network and for those in the UK, Ireland and USA, through www.perkins.com/shop.

Perkins filters – performance built-in

To maintain the integrity of the filter Perkins has used high quality media inside the filter for efficient protection. The filter also includes a better bypass valve now sited in the filter housing, so it's less likely to open inappropriately and the engine will prime more quickly as the filter stays full of oil, all of which protects the engine at initial start-up. The oil filter also employs the unique features from the rest of Perkins Ecoplus range including; spiral roving and acrylic beading to ensure maximum filtration surface area, and urethane moulded end-caps to prevent fluid escaping round the filter edge. These features ensure fast oil circulation on engine start to protect sensitive components such as turbochargers, and efficient filtration through the service life.

Perkins Ecoplus filters are manufactured in our own dedicated manufacturing facilities, ensuring the highest levels of manufacturing quality to deliver reliable, efficient filters. This range of new filters improves the performance of filtration for our customers and reduces environmental waste. More than half of Perkins engines currently in production are fitted with Perkins Ecoplus fuel filters.
