What is diesel engine soot?

What is diesel engine soot?

Diesel engine soot is a natural byproduct of the internal combustion process. Soot is one of the leading causes of costly breakdowns and unscheduled maintenance. Upgrading your engine oil filtration system to include a bypass centrifuge filter can make a substantial difference. A bypass centrifuge filter will capture and trap diesel engine soot particles and other solid contamination missed by the full-flow oil filters, reducing the engine’s wear and tear.

Engine Oil Sludge

Engine Oil Sludge

Engine oil sludge is a thick gel that forms when the oil oxidizes and is contaminated. It causes engine wear and overheating due to poor lubrication. Engine sludge is caused by poor-quality oil, ignoring service intervals, contaminated oil, environmental contaminants, high temperatures, excessive idling time, coolant, and moisture contamination. It is recommended to use centrifugal filters to remove contaminants from the oil.
