The Free Jet Driven Centrifugal Cleaner - A Present and Future Concept for Oil Filtration 1999-01-0824

MANN+HUMMEL has developed a centrifugal oil cleaner focused on the separation of soot from oil. The basic setup and operation principle of a free jet driven centrifugal oil cleaner and its integration into an engine oil system will be explained.
The development was supported by a new simulation tool, which predicts the centrifugal cleaner performance using computer analysis. This includes both the prediction of rotor speed and particle separation.
Additionally, MANN+HUMMEL performed a detailed rotor design analysis in order to reduce torque resistance, to improve environmental protection and reduce cost.
