How To Make Any Engine Last Up To 60% Longer.
Experts agree that the greatest amount of engine wear is
due to contaminants that are in the 5-20 micron range. To give a frame of reference,
these particles are about one-tenth to one-quarter the diameter of a human hair.
The Fluid Power Institute of the Milwaukee School of
Engineering conducted a study to evaluate the filtering efficiency of the AMSOIL EaBP90
By-Pass Oil Filter Element. The graph on this page illustrates the results of this
study. The values reflect the beta-ratios (the quotient of the particles in the oil
before it is filtered compared to the particles present after the oil is filtered) of
each filter over 15 different sampling intervals. In simpler language, the graph shows
the average percentage of particles removed by the EaBP90 By-pass Filter compared to
four of the nation's top-selling full-flow filters.
If 60% of all engine wear comes from particles in the
5-20 micron range, this study makes it very clear just how dramatically an AMSOIL
By-Pass Filter can extend the service life of your engine. The EaBP90 Filter Element
eliminates over 99% of these tiny, engine-damaging particles. Over the entire span of
these particle sizes, the AMSOIL By-Pass Filter removes 21.9% to 99.9% more contaminants
than conventional full-flow filters. in fact, below 10 microns, only one filter removed
any particles to any measurable degree, and this was at the extremely nominal rate of
In light of this study, you can certainly look at the
AMSOIL By-Pass Filter as very valuable investment. Hypothetically, if 60% of engine
wear come from 5-20 micron contaminants, then the AMSOIL EaBP90 Filter Element extends
your engine's service life by 13%-60%. You can of that in more real terms as 13,000
to 60,000 more miles for your vehicle (assuming an average service life of 100,000 miles).
For most people, that's six more years of driving.
