THE QUALITY OF CAT® HEAVY EQUIPMENT FILTERS

Cat® filters are designed with a clear goal in mind: to cut down on contaminants. They are optimized specifically for Cat equipment and tested beyond industry standards. That’s how you know you’re getting higher quality, longer lasting and more effective filters.

The filters’ acrylic beads prevent bunching and spiral roving to increase stability. A nylon center tube prevents metal contamination, and seamless, molded end caps eliminate leaks. These benefits can be seen in each type of Cat filter: 

  • Cat air filters provide maximum protection of vital engine parts, resulting in optimum performance. They reduce airborne irritants, creating a cleaner and more comfortable operator environment. 

  • Cat oil filters capture particles that would otherwise damage your engine, hydraulic and transmission systems. They minimize cold start bypass while maintaining appropriate cleanliness levels.

  • Cat fuel filters trap smaller particles that do the most damage to fuel injectors, fuel pumps and other engine components. These premium fuel filters remove nearly 100% of water from your fuel system.

 

CAT FILTERS IN ACTION

In a lab setting, Cat filters result in 45% longer fuel injector life and up to 80% lower fuel system cost. And Cat customers experience the long-term cost savings of using high-quality filters time and again.

“We work in the dirt. So we have to keep the dirt out,” explains Hind Abi-Akar, a fluids technical expert. “This is where our filters keep our fluids clean, so that the fluids can do their optimal job.”

The Chicago Refinery Company used Cat filters and fluids continuously on a Cat 990 Wheel Loader. They were able to extend second engine overhaul from 36,000 to 46,226 hours and gained 40% savings by reusing components during rebuild. From the design to the numbers, it’s easy to see the difference with Cat filters.

Investing in the right equipment makes all the difference. With Cat filters, your equipment gets better protection and performance. That means less repair work, more uptime and greater profitability. Contact your Cat dealer to learn more about how Cat filters can boost your operation.
