Luber-finer has launched its new line of heavy-duty Time Release Technology (TRT) oil filters. Designed to go beyond filtration, according to the company, the TRT filters “provide users with an oil management system that helps maintain oil quality and reduce maintenance costs associated with oil-change intervals.”

Luber-finer, pointing out that design changes in emission-controlled, heavy-duty diesel engines have placed increased stress on engine oil, said its TRT filters have been specifically engineered to help reduce escalating fleet-maintenance costs and help heavy-duty fleets extend oil-change intervals by increasing the protection against oil degradation in modern diesel engines.

To accomplish that, the TRT filters provide a controlled release of a specially formulated, highly concentrated liquid additive into the oil supply, which according to Luber-finer, helps the oil maintain its quality longer.

To optimize the benefits of this additive package, the filters deploy a patent-pending release mechanism, which dispenses the additive in a linear manner to help combat harmful acids that build up over time.

In addition to releasing the TRT line, Luber-finer has issued its new oil filter TRT Value Calculator. Found at www.luberfiner.com/value-calculator, the calculator helps fleet managers better understand current maintenance costs associated with oil changes and determine their potential fleet savings by effectively using TRT filtration products.

Luber-finer noted that the TRT Value Calculator will be part of the the firm’s mobile website and online parts-look-up and cross-reference tool. Downloadable for free at www.luber-finer.com/app, this mobile app was “designed to provide installers and other Luber-finer partners with one-click access to filter product search and cross-reference information to help speed filter change productivity and operators turn bays quicker.”
