Introduction

With Kleenoil Filtration technology correctly installed on an engine, a hydraulic system or on a transmission, the oil will be finely recycled and the water removed during operation. This means the oil is maintained in a clean useable condition. As a result of this process, it is practical to extend the life of the oil dramatically, while at the same time giving the engine added protection against wear and corrosion. Equipment users are encouraged to carry out regular oil analysis as part of their good management practices. These analyses will indicate whether or not the oil is reusable.

Maintenance Procedures for Kleenoil Filtration units installed on diesel engines in heavy duty trucks and equipment

  1. Take regular oil samples and obtain analysis reports for equipment management.
  2. Change oil and full flow filters when the Kleenoil Filtration technology is installed.
  3. Thereafter, change the Kleenoil Filtration cartridge every 8,000 to 15000 miles (or 100 to 300 hours), or as instructed by your maintenance manager. (This is usually around the time you previously changed oil). Do NOT change the oil. Do NOT change the full flow filters at this time.
  4. Change the oil and full flow filters as indicated by oil analysis or as directed by your maintenance manager. This will probably be in the region of 10 times longer than you previously experienced. In many cases, it is practical to move to a 1 year oil and OEM filter change routine. In any event, the OEM oil filter must be changed at least once each year. They will degrade if immersed in oil longer than 12 months.

  5. In the case of a gasoline or natural gas engine, it is probable that you will never need to change the oil again.

Maintenance Procedures for Kleenoil Filtration units installed on hydraulics

  1. Take regular oil samples and obtain analysis reports for equipment management.
  2. Change the Kleenoil Filtration cartridges every 400 to 600 hours or as instructed by your maintenance manager.
  3. Change oil only when indicated by oil analysis.
  4. Change standard filters according to OEM specifications.
  5. Please note that the frequency of cartridge change varies according to the operating conditions.
  6. It is highly likely that you may never change the hydraulic oil again.

Changing the Kleenoil Filtration Cartridge: (2 to 5 minutes)

  1. Remove the lid with a wrench.
  2. Wrap the new plastic cover over the lidless Kleenoil filtration unit.
  3. With one finger through the plastic cover and the brass ring on the top of the cartridge, wiggle the cartridge to remove suction and pull out of the unit. Seal the plastic with the old cartridge inside ready for disposal.
  4. Place the new cartridge in the unit with the brass ring uppermost.
  5. Replace or return the lid sealing ring, place the lid in position, and tighten down with a wrench using between 24 and 28 lbs ft.
  6. Run the engine for a few minutes until warm, and top up the oil level.
  7. Users/mechanics should get used to touching the Kleenoil Filtration units on a regular basis. If the unit is warm or hot during normal operations, then it and the engine oil system are working well. If at any time during normal operations the unit is cold, then the unit is not working. Assuming that the proper maintenance has been carried out, this is a warning sign that something is wrong in the engine or with the oil feed to the unit.

The Finest Filter

Notes:

  1. If the oil samples indicate that too much contamination remains in the oil, then either the cartridge change interval should be reassessed or the size of the unit may not be adequate for the conditions involved.
  2. If diesel fuel is leaking into the oil, the problem should be addressed at source. Usually leaking injectors. Continued leakage of diesel into the oil, will change the properties of the oil which will then require attention.
  3. Diesel leakage through the Kleenoil Filtration cartridge can be detected by a gray color (instead of black) on the top of a spent cartridge, together with the obvious smell of the diesel in the system.
  4. In the event of any oil related OEM or Kleenoil Filtration warranty or other claim, a large (I quart) oil sample must be jointly taken, labeled and signed by the user, by the OEM, and by Kleenoil Filtration immediately. The sample will then be divided into approximately three equal portions for the interested parties to have analyzed.
  5. Kleenoil Filtration has excellent in-house expertise regarding oil analysis interpretation. All Kleenoil Filtration customers can receive a free written interpretation of their oil analysis result where it relates to equipment using the technology.
