Oil Supply to Centrifuge
Oil supply should be taken from a source as close to the lube oil pump discharge as possible and on the dirty side of the full flow oil filter. A 1/2” NPT pipe or #8 hose supply should be used for supply with a full-opening ball valve installed in supply line to al- low the centrifuge to be isolated for cleaning with- out shutting the engine down. The centrifuge will operate efficiently at 30 to 90 psig with the preferred pressure of 60 to 80 psig. Below 30 psig, an internal idle cutout valve will close to prevent low oil pressure during low engine RPM.
Clean Oil Return to Sump
Using Oil Control Base (OCB) Preferred
The oil control base, Part # COCB-01 permits the Model 300 centrifuge to be installed in any convenient location near the engine.
The clean oil drain line to the sump should be a 1” minimum diameter, unrestricted hose or pipe. A 1” connection located above the oil level is preferred. Alternate oil fill openings or drilled-and-tapped holes in crankcase doors are options that can be used. A below oil-level-return will require the use of a 1 1/2” check valve, Part # C300-24, located at the OCB oil outlet connection to prevent back-flow when the centrifuge is being serviced. Only low pressure drop check valves are permitted in the drain line, manual shut-off valves should never be used on the drain line.
The OCB controls the oil flow from the centrifuge back to the engine and insures the centrifuge reaches maximum speed and efficiency. To accomplish this, the OCB uses a very small volume of com- pressed air; approximately 0.02 SCFM. The OCB is capable of receiving compressed air from any 5 to 400 psig source. If there is no compressed air available it may be possible to use turbocharger air or air from a positive displacement blower. Instructions for this type installation are available from your SPIN-CLEAN™ representative.
Using Gravity Drain Engine Mounting Only
For gravity drain without the OCB, the SPIN-CLEAN™ centrifuge must be close-coupled to the engine sump using an unrestricted 2” I.D. drain back into the engine above the engine normal oil level. A crankcase door, inspection cover, etc. can be modified to provide a suitable oil return back into the engine. The drain is correct if you can drop in a 4” diameter ball and it can freely roll through the drain line into the engine.
SPINCLEAN™ Centrifuges are high-speed devices and should be securely mounted to prevent excessive vibration. Model 300 may be installed up to 15 degrees from vertical.
