Commercial Fleets, Rental & Other Equipment
Escalating costs and budget restrictions, executive demands, and an accelerating stream of new regulations can keep commercial and government managers awake at night. Peace of mind occurs when these managers can better control their costs, achieve more effective and efficient operations, and improve their vehicle/equipment’s environmental footprint. Owners of rental vehicles are often more vulnerable, knowing that renters don’t feel responsible for general maintenance, which if left unchecked, can lead to major problems downstream.
Operating and maintenance costs are rising; and meeting budgets can be difficult. With few viable solutions available, PPI’s Parallel-Flow Advanced Oil Filtration System (PAF) helps, by offering O&M benefits that easily exceed cost. In fact, a typical sedan, driving about 14,000 miles per year can pay back its initial cost in under a year and, if it remains in place for about 5½ years, will return about 10 times its cost.
PAF is quick and easy to install, requiring no special tools, knowlege, or engine modifications. Once installed, the vehicle or equipment will perform better, require less maintenance, fuel, oil, and filters, and can last up to 2x longer. Finely cleaned oil reduces downtime, scheduled and unexpected, by removing the very finedebris that is the primary cause of engine wear. PAF is scalable and may be mass customized; volume discounting is provided on a graduated basis.
PAF provided asset protection leads to a new and brighter reality:
- First class cost-containment
- Superior fleet/maintenance best practices leadership
- Prominent environmental stewardship
Most government fleet managers experience very tight and carefully controlled budgets. This is aggravated by the fact that government vehicles are often required to remain in service for much longer than their purported useful service life. Parallel-Flow Advanced Oil Filtration (PAF) is an inexpensive tool enabling government vehicles and certain hydraulic equipment to perform better, more economically, and for longer periods of time. By removing the most dangerous contaminants, particles smaller than 5 microns, the engine is not subject to typical engine wear. (see the Commercial Fleets description for even more benefits).
PAF can fit most vehicles and equipment with spin-on oil filters (factory or relocated); it is scalable and can easily be mass customized. No engine modification or special tools are needed for installation, and normal maintenance can be extended to about double, or more. The provided Donaldson premium filter can last about 25,000 miles.
Breakdowns or extended time in the shop is costly. Our Parallel-Flow Advanced Oil Filtration system (PAF) for construction and mining vehicles and equipment provides fine filtration that can help to avoid unexpected and expensive downtime costs, whether scheduled or unexpected. PAF can pay for itself simply by deferring, let alone eliminating as little as one major shutdown. Ongoing benefits, including improved engine performance, better mileage, longer service intervals, and a lower environmental footprint are also provided by PAF.
PAF is scalable and nay even be mass produced, if requested. It has been tested on many different engines, from a tier 4 Diesel tractor to a 2.4L sedan. Its sister product, TopDog-V, with similar architecture, has been tested in extreme conditions and has won numerous prestigious awards and recognition in the off-road industry.
Agriculture (e.g., Farms, Ranches, Vineyards) Industry
Parallel-Flow Advanced Oil Filtration (PAF) is uniquely beneficial to agricultural vehicle and equipment. With tight budgets and increasing costs, it is a cost-effective way to protect your expensive assets, improve performance, lower operating and maintenance costs, and reduce your environmental footprint. A test on Tier-4 tractors returned data showing that these engine could easily run more than 750 hours between oil changes.
Keeping your oil healthy is a critical key to engine/equipment optimization and longevity. Studies consistently find that the most serious damage to engines/equipment is caused by debris 10 microns and smaller. By removing harmful particles down to 2-Microns, compared to the 25-40 microns that most full flow filters are able to trap, PAF, our patented fine oil filtration system protects your engine/equipment and its critical components to the highest possible level.
PAF is simple and quick to install, and requires no engine modifications. Once installed, PAF will improve mileage, extend service intervals, reduce the vehicle’s environmental footprint, and can double the engine’s life. Affordably priced, the short payback period will result in savings many times over during a vehicle’s service life.
Parallel-Flow Advanced Oil Filtration (PAF) is an easy to install and maintain, economical, and environmental asset protection technology for engines and hydraulic systems. Our mission is to provide military vehicles and equipment (e.g., vehicles, reefers, generator, etc.) with an innovative cost-effective product that enhances operational readiness, reduces maintenance costs, and improves a vehicle or equipment’s environmental footprint across a broad spectrum of operations. This can be of particular importance as vehicles are cascaded from the Active to the Reserve Components.
PAF is a recently patented and validated oil management technology that reduces/removes lubricating oil contaminants through a novel piping system. Testing shows PAF-equipped engines experience longer life, attain better mileage, defer maintenance (e.g., oil and filter changes), reduce unexpected downtime due to premature component failure, provide a cleaner environmental footprint, significantly reduce handling/transporting of toxic materials; and PAF can easily become a low-cost platform for many applications, such as vehicles (wheeled, non-wheeled, autonomous) and generators.
PAF is scalable in size and adaptable – it can be shaped to fit into very demanding space requirements. PAF has been field-tested under heavy loads, at prolonged oil/filter change intervals, and in other severe conditions and extreme environments. Payback can be achieved in under one year, based on current configurations.

Parallel-Flow Advanced Oil Filtration (PAF) has been deployed on working vessels with great success. All that is required is a spin-on oil filter that matches our normal stock; or we can scale or mass custom upon sufficient demand. Engines that originally came with stock canister-type oil filters and have been retrofitted with spin-on oil filter relocation kits also do amazingly well.
Marine engines operate in a rough environment. PAF enables the engine to perform better, to enjoy better fuel economies, to experience reduced downtime (scheduled or unexpected), while also improving its environmental footprint.
