FF600


Oil Cleaning Centrifuges

FF600

The FF600 oil cleaning centrifuge consists of two sections, the centrifuge bowl, and the driving turbine; all contained in a rugged steel and cast aluminium housing.

Dirty oil enters the side of the centrifuge housing and travels up through the hollow spindle. At the top of the spindle, a baffle distributes the oil uniformly into the centrifuge bowl. The bowl spins at about 7500 rpm, with the result that oil quickly accelerates to a high speed; the resultant centrifugal force slings dirt outward onto the inside bowl wall where it mats into a dense cake.

Clean oil leaves the bowl through the screen and enters the turbine section; the oil pressure expels the oil through two opposing jets that spin the turbine and bowl with the clean oil bring fed back to the engine sump .

Oil pressure alone drives this highly efficient unit.

Removes Particles as small as 1/10th micron, no filter elements to buy, change and dispose of.
