NEW PREMIUM OIL FILTRATION SYSTEM FOR POWER END LUBRICATION
Houston, Texas – The leading cause of premature power end failure is contamination of the lubrication oil. To address this issue Caterpillar has released a premium Oil Filtration system for the Power End Lubrication as an installed standard attachment.
The Cat® Well Stimulation Pump Power End Lube Oil Filtration allows oil to be cleaned with the specifications that Caterpillar recommends. By integrating industry leading filters from the TH55 transmission into the power end filtration system, Caterpillar provides world class filtration to power ends, as well as parts commonality with the transmission of choice for well stimulation customers.
The oil filtration system is available on every Power End Only, Complete Pump, and Configurable Pump horsepower.
One benefit of the system is simplified maintenance, as it is capable of being mounted on the power end itself, allowing for rapid filter changes. Meticulously designed, the filtration system provides its greatest benefit of limiting contamination downstream. Now, there is less chance of debris being introduced from intermediate components.
Another convenience of the system is the ability to use the same tools for transmission filter changes.
Two additional features of the system include an integrated bypass sensor and sampling ports both upstream and downstream of the filter to allow for a consistent oil sampling process. In conjunction with a Scheduled Oil Sampling (SOS) program, this allows extended oil change intervals while ensuring satisfactory oil cleanliness. The oil filtration system is fully integrated with the Pump Electronic Monitoring System (PEMS), which provides oil pressure, oil temperature, and filter differential pressure data via J1939 standard.
Available now, the new system is compatible with and recommended for retrofit of already shipped Cat power ends.
