Who is NTF?
NTF, while under a new name,has a long, successful history in the filtration industry. NTF was purchased from NTZ International B.V. in the Netherlands in January 2017 and continues to offer the same products. We provide a variety of high performance filtration products for automotive original equipment, industrial, off-
What types of products do you produce?
NTF produces bypass and inline micro filtration systems for engine and transmission application throughout the industrial and transportation industries. Our products are applicable to several markets:
Automobile and light trucks
Fleet operations (both heavy-
Industrial (including such varied products as heavy-
What is micro filtration?
What is the difference between micro filtration and standard filtration?
Every engine and automatic transmission is equipped with a standard, or full flow filter, which removes the large particles that could cause immediate damage to vehicle systems. But because an adequate flow of fluid through the filter must be maintained, the element has to be permeable, resulting in a filtering of particles no smaller than 10 to 15 micron.
However, the majority of contaminants are much smaller than 10 micron, and they can easily pass through a standard filter. Bypass filtration is necessary to filter out 5-
What are the benefits of micro filtration?
Micro filtration results in superior fluid cleanliness for any lubrication or power transmission fluid system, including automatic transmission fluid (ATF), continuously variable transmission (CVT) fluid, dual clutch systems, engine oils and hydraulic oils. Overall, micro filtration results in fewer malfunctions, reduced downtime, reduction of waste oil and increased equipment life.
Why do I need additional filtration (other than factory equipped)?
Factory full flow filters are designed to provide a minimum screening of particulates (15 micron or larger particles of soot and carbon) to keep ongoing bearing protection and still maintain a specified flow rate, but in turn it loses a considerable amount of oil cleanliness. Ninety percent of engine wear is from particulates between .5 and 2.0 micron in size. The NTF filtration system removes contamination particulates down to .5 micron in size. The reason for adding the NTF filter to your existing system is to clean the lube oil, allowing the engine to run on clean oil 100% of the time. By keeping the oil clean you are eliminating over 90% of most engine wear.
Does additional filtration take care of coolant dilution?
Excessive coolant contamination within an engine can occur with gasket leaks and cracks in engine materials. This type of excessive contamination, due to mechanical failure, can be prevented by the NTF system. Ours is the only system that can absorb coolant and water molecules without the use of electrical heating elements.
What about acid build-
Corrosive acid is formed primarily from sulfur blow-
Why have the major engine manufacturers not installed the NTF filter system as the engine is manufactured?
There are two basic reasons: First, adding aftermarket products as factory equipment drives up the price of the products. Secondly, the manufacturers have planned obsolescence built into the engines to enable them to keep selling replacement parts and engines to you, the consumer.
I’ve heard that oil “breaks down” during service and must be replaced at regular intervals to protect engines and hydraulic systems from damage.
Most experts agree that the basic properties of oil do not change during service. Oil can, however, become contaminated by particles and moisture to the point that it cannot protect the lubricating system from wear and corrosion. Contamination can be reduced and maintained at low levels with the use of ultra-
I have full flow filters on all my equipment. Aren’t full flow filters adequate for keeping oil clean?
Full flow filters do what they are designed to do, which is to remove solids in the 15-
How does NTF maintain oil at levels of cleanliness which are superior to new oil?
New oil frequently contains particles in the wear range which exceed the maximum contamination levels specified by the equipment manufacturer! By removing particles in the wear range, as well as the moisture and varnishes which form in oil during service, NTF actually maintains oil at cleanliness levels which exceed the new oil and equipment manufacturers' specifications.
If I install an NTF filter on my operating engine, won’t it starve my engine of lubricating oil?
No! The principal behind our 20-
Does reclaiming oil with the use of ultra-
Sometimes yes and sometimes no. Some industrial lubricating fluids will show dramatic recovery of their original color, possibly to the point at which it cannot be distinguished from new fluid. Nearly every fluid will show some visible improvement in cleanliness with the removal of moisture and particles in the “wear range” (.5-
