Cummins Filtration - Fleetguard
The Fleetguard brand is a division of Cummins Filtration whose origin began in 1958 as a single filter production line developed by the Cummins Engine Company to meet the high performance requirements of Cummins diesel engines — previously known as The Seymour Filter Company, the facility located in Seymour, Ind., near Cummins headquarters in Columbus, Ind. Production started with two employees who sewed cloth-bag lube oil filters. Today Fleetguard is the world leader in filtration and exhaust products for diesel engines.
Under the Fleetguard brand, Cummins Filtration markets filtration products to original equipment manufacturers and the replacement service market for the truck, construction, agricultural, industrial and hydraulic (on- and off-highway) filters. As a world leader in innovative product technology, Cummins Filtration has introduced many significant advances in the heavy-duty industry, including the introduction of combination full-flow/bypass filtration in the 1980s, multi-layered StrataPore media in 1986, centrifugal filtration in 2000, entirely non-metallic lube and fuel filters in 2005, and many other state-of-the-art technologies.

Cummins Filtration - Fleetguard provides oil filters that meet and exceed OEM performance requirements for your engine.
All of the fluids and the air in today’s precision engines need to be kept clean to prevent damage to parts working within close tolerances of each other. Advanced filters supplied by Cummins Filtration, a leader in the technologies required to protect these systems, designs and manufactures advanced filters that clean the air coming into the cylinder, oil in the system and fuel coming into the injectors.
The filter's efficiency rating is based upon its Micron Rating. A Micron is a term of measurement used to express the size of particles captured by the filter. The lower a filter's micron rating, the smaller the size of the containment it will remove from the liquid being filtered. The micron rating of a filter expresses the diameter of the solid particle it will eliminate from a liquid. Micron ratings do not apply for Air Filters.
Micron Rating Perspectives:
- One-thousandth of a millimeter
- One-Millionth of a Meter
- One 25th of a thousandth of an inch
- A human hair is said to be about 50 micrometers wide.
Filter Efficiency Ratings:
- Nominal Micron Rating (NMR):
Nominal Micron Rating means the filter can capture a given percentage of particles at the stated size. For example, a filter might be said to have a nominal rating of 90% at 10 microns.
- Absolute Micron Rating (AMR):
Absolute Micron Rating is based on a single pass test and is obtained by passing fluid containing glass beads through a flat sheet of filter material. Any beads that pass through are captured and measured.
