When to Replace Perkins Engine Oil Filter and Fuel Filter


Under what circumstances should Perkins engine oil filter and fuel filter need to be replaced?

The function of filter element is to filter impurities, separate substances and reduce sound. Filter element is to remove iron oxide, dust and other impurities from fuel oil to prevent fuel system blockage, reduce mechanical wear and ensure the stable operation of the engine.


In general, the replacement period of the engine fuel filter element is 250 hours for the first operation, and then 500 hours for each operation after that. The replacement time should be flexibly grasped according to the different fuel quality grade.  


When the filter pressure gauge alarms or indicates abnormal pressure or when there is leakage or rupture or deformation on the surface of the filter, it is necessary to check if there is any abnormal phenomenon of the filter. If there is, it must be replaced.


When selecting the oil filter core, is the higher the filtration accuracy, the better?

The proper filter element filtration accuracy should reach a balance between filtration efficiency and ash content. The use of the filter element with high filtration accuracy will shorten the service life of the filter core due to the low ash content of the filter cores, thus increasing the risk of the oil filter being blocked prematurely. So users choose the original Perkins engine pure filter is the best choice to protect your engine.


As long as the filter core is cheap, and it can be properly installed on the Perkins engine. Whether it means there is nothing wrong with it?

Many filter element manufacturers simply copy the dimension and appearance of the original Perkins diesel generator set components, but do not attach importance to the engineering standards that should be reached by the filter elements, or even do not understand the contents of the engineering standards at all.


If the performance of the filter can not meet the technical requirements and the filtration effect is lost, the performance of our engine will be significantly reduced and the service life of the engine will be shortened.


The genuine Perkins filter and its internal process cannot be duplicated and imitated, only the original pure filter core can make the engine produce the maximum benefit.
