LSM Technologies Engineering Team were asked to investigate the cause for the short Filter Element service life and if we could provide a solution to improve performance of the Dozer engine and extend Filter replacement intervals.
On investigation and calculation of engine data, it was found that the current Engine Air- intake Precleaners were undersized for the Engines duty.
Further investigation revealed that the undersized Precleaners were selected on the basis that the top domes would not interfer with each other when mounted on the Engine Air in- takes.
The solution was simple, LSM Technologies Team:
As a result, Filter Element service life was increased from <1 day to >10 days.
The Operator of the machine was a Contractor with his own Komatsu D275 Dozer and was so impressed with the increased Engine performance of the Komatsu D475 and the extension of the Filter Element service life that he contacted LSM Technologies and purchased a Series 9000 Kit for his machine.
Designing and selecting the correct Precleaner System for your Engine Air intake will not only extended Filter Element service life but also:
And LSM Technologies where asked if we could do more? The answer is yes- by later installing a Sy- klone OPTIMAX Dual Stage Precleaner System that could deliver upto another 50% extension in Filter Service Life.
