Putting the right lubricants in your machine is the first step; using proper filters is the second. Cat filters are designed to work with Cat fluids in Caterpillar engines and component systems to provide the highest levels of cleanliness and performance, protecting your systems and lowering your operating costs.
STANDARD FLUID FILTERS
Cat standard fluid filters are designed to maintain system cleanliness and are manufactured to meet the most demanding specifications, providing increased performance and lower costs.
IMPROVED FILTRATION FOR A CLEANER ENGINE
Two new oil filters increase contamination control performance providing for a much cleaner running engine lubrication system. The Cat 1R-1807 and 1R-1808 Advanced Efficiency Engine Oil Filters contain an improved high-efficiency filter media to accumulate dirt more quickly while maintaining excellent dirt holding capacity. They offer better filtration efficiency than standard oil filters, improved engine cleanliness, and component life.
NEGLIGIBLE IMPACT ON DIRT HOLDING CAPACITY
To increase contamination control capability, the Cat Advanced Efficiency Engine Oil Filter combines improved filtration efficiency, excellent dirt holding capacity and low pressure drop characteristics. The improved filtration efficiency of the 1R-1807 and 1R-1808 filters over the corresponding standard efficiency filters results in less wear on oil-lubricated engine parts. Further, the condition of the oil as determined by S-O-S Analysis, and not filter capacity, is the major factor in determining the recommended oil change interval.
CONSISTENT QUALITY FROM FILTER TO FILTER
Caterpillar engineers its fluid filters to avoid metal contaminants, leaks, and pleat bunching and movement. All Cat fluid filters have:
- Properly cured filter media for long performance and life
- Spiral roving and beading for pleat stability to better trap and hold particles
- One-piece molded urethane end caps to eliminate leaks
- Strong nylon center tubes to prevent metal contamination
- A heavy gauge canister for structural strength
- One-piece aluminum base plate
Caterpillar manufactures over 80 percent of its fluid filters on an automated assembly line, eliminating virtually all human handling. This strict quality control eliminates variation from part to part.
