Development of a Lube Filter with Controlled Additive Release for Modern Heavy Duty Diesel Engines Utilizing EGR 2008-01-2644

As on-highway heavy-duty diesel engine designs have evolved to meet tighter emission regulations, the crankcase environment for heavy-duty engine lubricants has become more challenging. The introduction of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) has allowed for significant reductions of exhaust emissions, but has led to increased oxidation and acid build-up in the lubricant. Engine lubricant quality is important to help ensure engine durability, engine performance, and reduce maintenance downtime. Increased acidity and oxidation accelerate the rate at which the lubricant quality is degraded and hence shorten its' useful life. This paper explores the use of a lube filter with a controlled additive release to maintain lubricant quality.
