Levendis, Yiannis A.
The purpose of this report is to describe in detail the design of an environmentally friendly oil filter that is highly efficient and cost effective. It also defines what an environmentally friendly oil filter is, why the conventional oil filter is not an environmentally friendly oil filter. The problem statement put before our design team is clearly defined within the report as well as the individual parts of the problem statement. Our design team has chosen to use the principle of centrifugal force in our oil filter design. As an alternative we will also pursue the use of a ceramic monolith as our filtering medium. The report will discuss in detail the mathematical limitations and principles of centrifugal forces. Existing oil filters are bad for the environment and there are several reasons why. This report is intended to be an in-depth look at why the present day oil filters are bad for the environment and what the factors make up the design of a new and efficient environmentally friendly oil filter.
