How clean should oil be? Caterpillar Inc. specifies new oil to have a particle count of ISO 16/13.  If new oil is above this level of contamination it will not warranty the equipment. When new oil from a leading international oil manufacturer was tested before putting it into new Caterpillar equipment, the solid particle contamination was found to be 17/14.  This was new oil from a never previously opened container.  In this case the new oil had to be further filtered to bring it below the required specification.  [Lubrication & Fluid Power magazine, Jan/Feb 2004.]
