Luber-finer, a specialist in filtration for heavy duty on-highway vehicles and off-road equipment, is introducing the LFP9001XL, an upgraded oil filter designed for the Cummins ISX engine.

The XL (Extended Life) version of Luber-finer’s LFP9001 full flow oil filter features a 100% synthetic filter media that is designed to keep oil flowing smoothly while delivering enhanced filter efficiency over a longer time period.

Luber-finer reports that XL filters can help reduce the frequency of filter replacements and help increase vehicle uptime while reducing total service and filter spend.

“An oil filter should only be judged on three metrics: efficiency, capacity and restriction,” says Layne Gobrogge, Director of Heavy Duty Marketing. “Luber-finer’s full flow technology has been proven to outperform competitive combination bypass filters in particulate removal efficiency and capacity, as well as offer lower oil restriction.”

As calculated using ISO 4548-12 and ISO 4548-1 in-house testing vs. competitive filters, Luber-finer claims that the LFP9001XL provides:

  • 100% greater efficiency at removing particulate at 5 microns;
  • 45% more capacity to capture harmful particulate compared to competitive standard oil filters; and
  • 8% less restriction on an engine’s oil flow under harsh test conditions at a flow rate of 25 gallons per minute.
