of the foremost reasons for considering a bypass filtration system is soot
removal. Unfortunately, too few
bypass filters on the market have little if any efficacy on soot removal. The FS-2500 is the exception to that rule. Here we have an oil analysis report from Bi State Development Agency, it
was taken from a Cummins ISM engine in a Metro Transit Bus (arguably the worst
environment for soot production by diesel engines).
The FS-2500 was installed
on this bus in August of 2002. Prior
to installation the soot measured 3.60%. As
you can see, after the FS-2500 was installed the soot is reduced at every oil
sample taken. The last sample,
taken on February 26, 2003 shows soot at its lowest level to date: 1.50%. That is nearly a 60% reduction in soot. Bi State had been using centrifugal bypass filters before using the
FS-2500. Although they could see
residue inside the centrifuge every time it was serviced, the maximum soot
reduction they recorded in one year of use was a very disappointing 2.5%.If controlling soot in your
diesel engine is important to you, you need the FS-2500. The FS-2500…proven to remove soot!
