UFI Filters OE in Scania R410

The transmission oil filter is a fundamental component for preserving the purity of the oil in the transmission circuit. For this reason, UFI Filters says it has developed a high technological filtering solution with its exclusive FormulaUFI.Micron.

A special material developed by the UFI Innovation Centre composed by glass-fibre, in order to maximise the filter life, efficiency and reduce pressure drop.

The exclusivity of this FormulaUFI has been chosen by Scania for its R410, the vehicle that was recognised with the ‘Green Truck award’ in 2021. A real efficiency challenge that has been run on 360km in the north of Munich with 32 tons trucks with maximum 430 CV power.

The Scania R410, fitted with UFI Filters transmission oil filer, has obtained impressive results with 23,53 litre per 100 km average fuel consumption, reaching the highest average speed (80,60km/h) in a mixed circuit of highways and secondary roads.

The UFI oil filter, thanks to the concentration and distribution of the synthetic fibres of the filter media, guarantees high performing solutions, with high level dust holding capacity, that assure an optimal flow of the oil and a low pressure drop, thus assuring the best functioning and performance of the truck’s transmission.

UFI says that its filters also have more advantages compared to the traditional spin on solution, resulting in being more eco-friendly and avoiding dispersion of oil residuals during the service operation.
