Florida fleet converts to extended performance oil filter

SOMS Technologies announced the City of North Miami Beach Public Services Department has converted its vehicle fleet to the company's microGreen Extended Performance Oil Filter.

The City's Public Services Department recently completed a test program with the product and projects that converting its vehicle fleet to the microGreen Extended Performance Oil Filter will result in oil change maintenance savings of nearly 60 percent.

Benefits gained, substantiated through independent oil analysis, included much cleaner oil, no engine wear, fewer oil changes and also increased savings and reduced disposal of hazardous materials. This unique initiative was derived from the City’s Comprehensive Assessment of Revenues and Expenses (C.A.R.E.) Program, which was created by former City Manager, Dr. Kelvin L. Baker.

The City of North Miami Beach is the latest municipal fleet to convert to the patented new microGreen oil filter technology. The microGreen oil filter was introduced to the U.S. market in October 2008. Numerous fleets, including many of the top municipal and national commercial fleets, use the product. The microGreen oil filter continues to rapidly gain awareness and implementation.

Designed as two-filters-in-one, the microGreen filter looks and operates like a traditional oil filter; however its unique internal components include a patented microfilter that captures particles down to 2 microns in size.

Traditional oil filters using paper filtration typically filter down to 25 or 30 microns. The double filtration of the microGreen filter keeps the oil cleaner and maintains the additive package, allowing vehicles to extend the use of motor oil up to 30,000 miles.
