Conversion kits upgrade crankcase ventilation systems

Parker Hannifin's Racor division is extending its range of crankcase ventilation (CCV) products and systems with new conversion kits and fittings. Two conversion kits are now available, which enable a CCV8000 assembly to be converted to a CCV12000 model to improve the filtration of harmful exhaust gases at minimum cost. To simplify the installation of the latest CCV products, Parker has developed new 90-degree fitting adaptors that enable hoses to be connected to the crankcase filter quickly and easily.

By installing one of the new Parker Racor CCV55613-08 and CCV55613-10 conversion kits, users can increase the filter media of a CCV8000 system by 60 per cent, effectively turning it into a CCV12000 assembly. This makes it simple and affordable to install extra capacity on engines that are not easily accessible. Like all Parker Racor CCV systems, the kits are compact and durable, combining coalescence and crankcase pressure control.

The new kits are said to be easy to install, especially when used with Parker Racor's 90-degree fitting adaptors. These new components enable CCV assemblies to be installed in tighter applications, where using a straight barbed fitting may be difficult. Hoses can be routed vertically to the crankcase filter and, once in place, can be locked in any orientation.

These new additions complement Parker Racor's extensive range of CCV products, which provide a simple and cost-effective method of reducing the environmental impact of crankcase emissions and complying with legislation. Added benefits include reduced oil consumption and extended service life for turbos and aftercoolers, thereby minimising maintenance requirements and cutting operating costs for end users.
