How the Centrifuge Works

A Spinner II centrifuge is a highly effective bypass filtration device.

The unit is self-powered, using engine oil pressure to generate speeds over 6,000 rpm. It diverts a sidestream of oil for processing and returns clean oil to the crankcase.

The centrifuge operates at speeds in excess of 6,000 rpm, generating a force more than 2,000 times greater than gravity. This force slings contaminants smaller than one micron out of your oil and packs them into a dense cake on the interior wall of the disposable centrifuge rotor.

A Spinner II centrifuge flows up to two gallons (7.6 l/m) of oil every minute, allowing it to clean the entire sump capacity of a typical transit engine 10-15 times an hour.


(1) Oil enters the rotor under engine pressure, flowing up through a hollow spindle 

(2) Centrifugal force 2,000 times greater than gravity separates contaminants from the oil

(3) Contaminants accumulate on the inside of the disposable rotor surface

(4) Clean oil exits at high speed from opposing, twin nozzles, powering the centrifuge

(5) Oil returns to the crankcase from the Level Control Base, which maintains proper oil flow for speed and efficiency
