NitiFilter® - Sustainable engine oil filter
NitiFilter® is an innovative maintenance-free oil filtration system which protects your motor and drastically limits waste.
Instead of using a standard paper based filter, whose filtration rating evolved with time and which become contaminated in its depth, NitiFilter is using a stainless steel mesh. This mesh has a few benefits : little pressure drop, good life span (usually greater than the vehicle), planar filtration (hence no in depth clogging) and easy cleaning. This solution as a self-cleaning mechanism, using a piston accumulator and the oil pressure variation. Then, a local flow inversion done 30 times per minute separates the waste from the mesh. All contaminants and debris which are washed away from the mesh are sent to another component of the system, a purifier, where they are stored away from the main oil loop. The solution is especially relevant anytime one drains his engine at least twice a year. Every business with some heavy-duty engine (transportation, civil engineering / generator or regular engine) is a fitting customer.
