Electro-Lube Refiners filter out solid particles down to 5 microns, while original equipment filters on the engine will only effectively remove particles of over 30 microns in size; 60% of engine wear is caused by particles smaller than 30 microns. It traps and neutralizes acids, keeps water content to less than 0.5% and fuel dilution to less than 1%. It helps prevent sludge which forms when dirty oil is too saturated to carry away all of the waste products it has cleaned out of your engine.
Since Electro-Lube is a bypass refiner, it cannot block the flow of oil to the engine although it will greatly prolong the service life of the original equipment full-flow filters that come with the engine. Major engine manufacturers are on record as saying that although they make no claims for after-market installations, a correctly installed Electro-lube by-pass refiner system will not affect their new engine warranty.
