Maintenance of tractor oil filter
The general use and maintenance of tractor oil filter should pay attention to the following points
After the tractor oil filter is used for a certain period of time, many impurities and dirt will adhere to the filter element of the tractor oil filter. Therefore, the oil filter should be replaced regularly according to the instructions. For normal working vehicles, the tractor oil filter should be replaced every 6 months or 200-300 hours of operation. For large vehicles, the tractor oil filter should be cleaned at the time and mileage above. In harsh conditions, such as frequent driving in dusty environments, it should be replaced every 150 hours of operation.
For centrifugal tractor oil filter, they can be cleaned as follows:
1. First remove the dirt from the oil filter cover and housing. Remove the cover, remove the nut and thrust bushing securing the rotor, and remove the rotor.
2. Use a socket wrench to unscrew the nut on the rotor cover and remove the rotor cover (be careful not to damage the sealing gasket). It is 30°-45°. If it is too small, the resistance will increase, affecting the air intake. If it is too large, the rotation of the airflow will be weakened and the ability to separate dust will be reduced. The blade surface must not peel off to prevent oxidation particles from entering the cylinder. The direction of the dust outlet should be determined according to the ability to discharge dust particles.
3. The ventilation net should be cleaned when the tractor oil filter is maintained; the dust particles should not exceed 1/3 of the height of the dust cup, otherwise it should be removed in time; the dust cup mouth should be tightly sealed, and the rubber sealing strip should not be damaged or lost .
4. Oil change and cleaning should be carried out in a windless and dust-free place. In environments with low humidity, high pressure air should be used to purge the filter. The blowing direction should be opposite to the direction that the air enters the filter; when installing, the folding directions of adjacent filters should cross each other.
How tractor oil filters work
Oil filters are designed to trap large particles and debris that can clog the engine. To clean the filter, unscrew it from the motor and remove the filter screen. Pour a pot of hot water over the filter and agitation with a wire brush will loosen any dirt or debris. Pour a pot of cold water over the filter and swish it around to cool. Once cooled, pour a pot of degreaser over the top of the filter and scrub with a stiff brush. Rinse with clean water and replace the filter screen.
