How long do oil filters last?

This a tough question to answer because the life of your oil filters depend upon the cleanliness of the oil, the oil type, amount of filters in the system, and efficiency of the filters in the system.

Why is temperature control important?

During any filtration process if heat is applied you can not exceed the oil specifications as it will burn the oil and deplete the oil additives.  Every oil is specific and should be looked at individually as we work with the oil companies to confirm oil specifications.

How hot can oil get?

The temperature of the oil cannot exceed the manufacturers specification sheet.

What happens if the wrong oil filter is used?

Using the wrong oil filter can negatively impact the oil system.  If the differential pressure exceeds the housing bypass setting then the oil will not be filtered  thus bypassing the filter media.  This could potentially lead to the filter media being damaged and letting the contaminants into the system that the filter is supposed to protect. 

How do oil filters work?

The oil filter is designed to handle the flow rate, oil type, oil viscosity, temperature and provide protection to the most sensitive parts of the system.  The oil in the system is only as efficient as the filter in the system.

What difference is a filter cart VS our filtration equipment?

An oil filtration unit provides protection from harmful contaminants.  Depending on the design of the filtration unit and efficiency of the filters predetermines what the filter unit is designed for.  Generally speaking, a filter cart is designed to pre-filter the oil or kidney loops. Our filtration units are specifically designed in-house. Each unit has over 500-1000 hrs of R&D before leaving for the field.   All our equipment has to achieve an ISO Code of 13/12/10 and at a specific flow rate.  The flow rate is pre-determined by the type of oil needed to filter being lube oil, hydraulic oil, specialty oil, gear oil and diesel fuel.  

Generic filter carts are designed to prefilter the oil at no specific set oil cleanliness.  They are made generally for prefiltering the oil to keep the large debris out of the system.
