Ready Mix Trucks
is an example of Lafarge Ready Mix Trucks with and without the FS-2500
installed. After the FS-2500 was
installed Lafarge successfully increased their oil drain intervals to 800 hours. At 800 hours you would have expected the wear on these engines to be much
worse than at 400 hours, but as the graph shows, the FS-2500 has been quite
capable of slowing the growth of the wear in these engines.
you know, in 2002 the EPA is once again changing the emission specs for diesel
engines. It is projected that these
changes will greatly increase the amount of fuel soot in the oil. With this in mind, please take note of the soot level in
these engines. The soot level of
the engines with the FS-2500 are approximately 1/3 the amount of the soot level
of those without the filter installed. In
the near future the FS-2500 will be a necessity to maintain the performance of
your diesel engines, new and old alike.
