A Magnom PFU200 was installed on a freshly rebuilt Cat 3516 engine. Our objective is to extend the lives of engines and reduce the probability of sudden engine failure.
Here's a close up of the Magnom install on one of the 4 spin on filter bases. More Magnom PFUs could be installed to the other 3 filter bases to optimize "first pass" ferrous particle capture.
After 500 hours the PFU was disassembled. It is best to store the magnetic core in a plastic sealed bag for later comparison to future cores that are to be installed on the engine. This will allow comparisons of ferrous particle accumulation or build up.
