PuraDYN Filter Technologies, Boynton Beach, Fla., announced a joint venture with Mack Trucks to offer puraDYN's proprietary by-pass oil filtration systems as an aftermarket option through participating Mack truck dealers in the United States.

The puraDYN oil filtration system is a highly efficient by-pass filter system which can be installed on any internal combustion engine or hydraulic equipment. It has been designed and developed to dramatically extend oil drain intervals, and in many cases even eliminate oil drains completely, claims the company.
"We are pleased that Mack Trucks has agreed to make our systems available to their customers driving Class 7 and Class 8 trucks," said puraDYN's President and Chief Operating Officer Kevin Kroger. "With stricter gaseous emission standards being introduced in 2002 and beyond, oil filtration will become an ever-growing concern due to the higher soot levels created by nitrous oxide reductions."
