Protection against Costly repairs and poor performance
Direction plus, ProVent oil separator kits protect your modern diesel engine by sustainably reducing the amount of oil entering the engine from blow-by gas in the crankcase ventilation system.
The problem is compounded with modern engines fitted with exhaust gas recirculation systems (EGR) where by a proportion of the exhaust gas is routed back into the engine. With the presence of oil from the crankcase ventilation system, the oil collects the exhaust particles. The combination of oil and exhaust particles from the EGR build up to a point where it blocks inlet manifolds and valves, resulting in reduced engine performance or failure.
By not fitting a Direction Plus ProVent system, it is likely that your engine will experience a progressive reduction in performance. The images below are typical examples of the build-up in engines not fitted with a Direction Plus ProVent system.
Direction Plus ProVent systems, are specifically designed for its ability to separate and redirect oil and air from blow-by gas produced from within the crank case. The Direction Plus ProVent system also provides the option of returning the oil back to the sump.
For the ultimate defence against oil and soot contamination, investing in a Direction Plus ProVent oil separator kit will protect your investment 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Why Do you need Extra Common Rail Fuel Filtration?
Diesel acts as a lubricant and moves around the fuel injection system freely, until it is placed under ultra-high pressure and burnt in a gas like state to drive the vehicle. This makes the fuel injection system very susceptible to particle contamination and more importantly water damage.
Are you able to remember back to the days before ULSD (Ultra Low Sulphr Diesel) and LSD (Low Sulphur Diesel)? Do you remember having to drain the water out of your 4×4 fuel filters? Most of us do. But we haven’t had to do it for a long time have we? The answer to this is the change in the fuel itself. Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel that we have today, suspends water in the fuel. This is called emulsified fuel. This means you cant see it in normal circulation like “whole water” which is separate in the bottom of the fuel bowl. The Direction Plus Fuel Kits are designed to remove water contamination above all else, even the water you cant see.
As the Australian and New Zealand climate fluctuates between hot and cold weather conditions, water condensation starts to develop. The water molecules from this condensation enter the fuel system and mixes with diesel to reduce the overall lubricity of diesel within the fuel system. This causes friction damage with internal components and as metal particles start to break off and move around the fuel system, this is where damage starts to compound and impact other parts and components within the fuel system.
Most diesel vehicles are fitted with a 2-5 micron final filter (size of bacteria) installed by the O.E.M to remove the finer contamination. The Direction Plus™ Diesel Fuel Pre-Filter kits utilise a 30 micron filter (size of lint) which is specifically selected to remove the majority of dirt, rocks, dust, rust, scale, yeasts, mould, bacteria, algae, acid and most importantly water that may be present in the fuel before it enters the engine.
By installing the Direction Plus™ Diesel Fuel Pre-Filter Kit in your vehicle you are helping to maintain the life of your fuel injection system and maintain system power delivery.
Features & Benefits of using a DIRECTION PLUS™ Diesel Fuel Pr-Filter Kit
- 95% whole water separation and superior particle contamination removal
- Ability to separate emulsified water (water mixed with diesel) from Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel
- Has a clear water drainage bowl to easily identify water
- Does not have a filter bypass – meaning contaminated fuel will not be sent to the fuel system when the filter becomes blocked
- Kits can be installed in under 1 hour
- Increases the reliability of your Diesel Vehicle
