The Spinner II centrifuge is a highly efficient bypass filtration device. It diverts a small sidestream of oil for processing and returns clean oil to the crankcase.
Powered only by engine oil pressure, 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 wall of the cleanable centrifuge bowl.
A Spinner II centrifuge flows up to two gallons of oil every minute, allowing it to clean the entire sump capacity of a typical heavy-duty engine 10-15 times an hour.
This demonstration shows the Model 936 centrifuge, which has a reusable rotor. The Model 560HE centrifuge operates by the same principles, but has a sealed, single-use, disposable rotor.
1) Dirty oil flows through hollow spindle into rotating bowl under normal oil pump pressure.
2) As oil passes through the rotating bowl, centrifugal force separates oil and solid contaminants.
3) Contaminants are deposited as a solid cake on the surface the cleanable bowl.
4) Clean oil exits through opposing, twin nozzles that power the centrifuge in excess of 6,000 rpm.
5) Clean oil returns to the crankcase from the level control base.
