What is the FS2500?
The FS-2500 is a bypass filtration system specifically designed for diesel engines. Diesel engines generate a lot of soot that slowly grinds away the moving parts of your engine. Modern emission controlled engines with EGR and post-injection technology are serious offenders when it comes to oil contamination.
Isn't my regular engine oil filter enough?
With new diesel pickups running from $30,000 to $60,000 and replacement engines easily running over $15,000 you want to get maximum life out of your investment! Every engine needs a full-flow filter, but they have limitations. Because of the high volume of oil they must process, full-flow filters cannot be too restrictive or the filter bypass will open and your engine will receive unfiltered oil. The most efficient standard filter will remove particles down to about 25 microns. According to the Society of Automotive Engineers (Paper 881825) and a number of major diesel engine manufacturers, particles in the 4 – 7 micron range are responsible for up to 88% of engine wear. The FS-2500 is specifically designed to remove the damaging particles in this range which are NOT removed by your factory oil filter.
What does a bypass filter do?
Instead of filtering all of the oil used by your engine each time it passes through, a bypass filter diverts roughly 10% of an engine’s normal flow for finer filtration. The FS-2500 removes 99.63% of particles larger than 3.0 microns from the oil. The FS-2500 also removes water from condensation which causes acid buildup - it will hold almost a pint of water! Anyone who has ever disassembled a diesel engine knows what a dirty job it can be. By removing water and carbon particles, the FS-2500 will prevent the formation of this harmful sludge. Additionally, the life of the oil’s additive package (measured as TBN) will be significantly extended.
How do I know it works?
Oil analysis is the ultimate proof that any filtration system is working. Oil analysis results from heavily loaded commercial equipment have frequently shown that engines equipped with the FS-2500 have less wear metal and soot contamination than they did before the FS-2500 even when oil drain intervals are doubled! Learn from the Pros! Over the Road truck drivers, using synthetic oil, have traveled 300,00 miles and more between oil changes. Fleet operators make their purchase decisions based on long-term operating costs and oil analysis not phony advertising and untested claims. Take a look at our brochure for independent test results from the highly respected Southwest Research Institute that prove the FS-2500 does just what it claims.
What can the FS2500 do for me?
Save your money! Most diesel pickup owners are changing the filter element in their FS-2500 at the recommended 10,000 miles, and their oil at up to 20,000 - 30,000 miles. Oil analysis will determine the best interval for your particular engine and usage patterns. Clean oil lubricates better and will slightly increase fuel economy too! The FS-2500 will pay for itself in oil changes alone, especially for those who have chosen to make the costly investment in synthetic oil. Do the math – when you factor in the time, hassle, and cost of oil changes, extended engine life, environmental costs of oil production and disposal, the FS-2500 just makes sense!
Save your engine! The average oil film thickness between loaded components on an engine is in the range of 0.5 to 20 microns - imagine what a 5 micron piece of grit does when it gets jammed between a piston and cylinder wall with three microns of clearance!
Have a Power Chip?
If you have installed a Power Chip, you are having fun, but also dumping much more soot into your engine and increasing the load at the same time – especially when you see that black smoke rolling! Taking into consideration the soot and extra loads on the engine, you cannot afford NOT to install the FS-2500! Better lubrication means more power too! You’ve done something TO your truck – how about doing something FOR it?
Each kit comes custom tailored to your vehicle and engine with complete step-by-step installation instructions and color pictures. Everything needed to perform the installation such as lines, fittings, brackets, and bolts are included. Most kits have a choice of standard rubber lines or an upgrade to stainless steel braided lines. Because of their exceptional durability and security, not to mention beauty, we recommend the stainless lines. Scroll down for kit options, prices, and ordering.
Will using the FS2500 affect my warranty?
Properly using the FS-2500 will result in oil quality far exceeding manufacturer requirements. The emphasis of OE requirements is on oil condition, not drain intervals. Your retained analysis records are evidence. Installing a bypass filter or other vehicle accessories will not void your warranty.
Is this for real?
There are lots of products on the market, making a host of claims. We don’t put our name behind any product we don’t believe in. Remember, clean oil never hurt anything – it just makes sense! If you have not yet, consider
