Last Line of Defense
Tigercat FPT engines operate at higher temperatures and pressures than previous engines. This means even slight fuel contamination can cause serious engine damage. To keep Tigercat FPT engines running smoothly, it is critical to use fuel filters that meet Tigercat specifications.
It is essential to use the correct Tigercat OEM filters and maintain recommended service intervals to get maximum life and highest uptime from your equipment.
Source Tigercat fuel filters from your Tigercat dealer. The part number is BH810-1. Other brands may fit, but not necessarily seal, causing fuel to bypass the filter.
Refer to the Operator’s Manual for the correct service intervals and remember that the intervals must be matched to the conditions and duty cycle of the machine.
Tigercat hydraulic systems are extremely efficient and as a result, quite sophisticated. Components are manufactured to extremely tight tolerances in order to reach productivity and fuel efficiency goals. Consequently, these hydraulic components demand effective filtration. It is the job of your hydraulic filters to remove contamination from the oil flow.
A replacement filter may fit in the same location as your Tigercat branded filter. However, it may not have the same performance qualities.
There are many important characteristics and criteria to consider when choosing a filter.
- The types of components being protected
- System flow and pressure
- The duty cycle of the machine
- Filter head bypass rating
- Operating temperature range
- Oil viscosity
- Filter efficiency and micron rating
- Water separation ability
- Dirt holding capacity
- Media type
