Using magnetic oil drain plug is a common and safe practice for protecting your engine. If you use a quality magnetic drain plug and install it correctly, it can make your engine even safer. The main purpose of installing a magnetic oil drain plug is to remove all the metal debris that your oil filter misses, extending the lifespan of your engine. The metal particles that promote the process of oxidation have adhered to the magnet, then the oil oxidation reduces effectively. This adds insurance to engine health. It can be distinguished by head diameters and thread pitches (e.g, M12x1.5, M12x1.75, M14x1.5), which enables you to choose the right one that fits your specific oil pan model. It is made of either Aluminum or Titanium alloy material and contains a magnet component. If you’re looking to use a magnetic oil drain plug on your vehicle, you’ll specifically need these factors to judge whether they are safe magnetic oil drain plugs.
Size. The first factor is that whether the magnetic drain plug fits your oil pan. A common misconception is that as long as the oil drain plug has the same thread as the oil drain pan, they will fit and work well. To tell the truth, all oil drain pans are not designed the same, which is why different oil drain pans requires different plugs. The head diameters, magnetic tips, and seat types are some of the differences. It is recommended that choose a magnetic oil drain plug that is the same style as the original equipped one. At BONOSS store, we have lined up these magnetic drain plugs according to the specifications of the OE ones. All you need to do is telling us the model of your engine, simple and high effective.
Design. BONOSS forged Titanium magnetic oil drain plug consist of a standard bolt with a neodymium magnet and a pure copper gasket (or Fluorine rubber ring). It is an effective design that make the plug seal better, preventing the oil pan from unwanted leaks. The diameter of the magnet part is up to 8mm, which provides stronger magnetism and wider magnetic coverage. This allows it to better collect metal particles and other harmful metallic fragments in the engine oil, effectively removing them from circulation. Due to the permanent magnetism feature, you can reuse them during routine maintenance oil changes.
Material. When talking about safe oil drain plug for your vehicle, material selection can be very important. There are mainly Aluminum and Titanium. Considering the strength and lightweight needs, Titanium is more suitable. Titanium alloys possess high mechanical properties, not only have great fatigue strength and tensile strength performance but also maintain great strength at extreme temperatures up to 400 to 500°C. They are light in weight, also have extraordinary corrosion resistance. Due to the forged process, they become hard and tough. The strength is greatly enhanced. The magnetic part uses a high-strength neodymium magnet, this allows it to work well even in high-temperature conditions. It can operate in temperatures to 230°C, far past the working temperature of engine oil.
Accurate Data-User Friendly Experience
Core integrity and precision machining provide products of high strength and strong performance in the industry. Derived from our 10+ years of practical measurement experience, countless times of actual measuring, drawing updates, size precision upgrades, installation tests, we have built our own database of each vehicle selling on the market, and it’s still being updated continuously.
