The Filtamax By-Pass filtration system reduces oil waste, and can safely extend or even eliminate routine oil change intervals.
Filtamax By-Pass Oil Filter is an ultra-fine, One-micron By-Pass filtration system, suitable for use with a wide range of equipment in various industries. It provides the best possible filtration protection against water, system wear, oil degradation, contaminants, rust, and corrosion.
Working in conjunction with the equipment’s full-flow filter, Filtamax By-Pass Oil Filter eliminates damaging wear caused by particles that normally pass through the original equipment manufacturer’s (OEM) filter. Filtamax By-Pass Oil Filter substantially reduces corrosive acid buildup that forms in engine oils under normal engine use.
ENGINE OIL FILTRATION
Filtamax By-Pass Oil Filter works in conjunction with the main full flow filter by directing 4 to 6 quarts per minute of oil from the lube system into the Filtamax canister. This reduced flow filters the oil down to 1 micron as it passes through the patented filter cartridge.
Particles from 3 microns and larger cause wear in equipment. These particles cause a buildup of soot and contaminants that thicken the oil and cause excess heat, efficiency loss, and wear. One-micron filtration removes these wear-causing particles that the main OEM full flow filter misses.
By removing the ultra fine contaminants, Filtamax extends the life of the full flow filter and the detergent additives in the oil. This lengthens the interval between oil drains.
Filtamax oil cartridges are made of a dense cellulose fiber-based tissue of pure timber pulp, which has a significantly increased surface area when compared to the standard OEM filter. The increased surface area and high absorbency factor of the filter cartridge allows for the removal of 99.9% of water content. Water is responsible for the creation of acid buildup. Its removal extends the life of the oil additives designed to neutralize acid in the oil, further extending oil life.

HYDRAULIC OIL FILTRATION
The majority of failures of hydraulic systems are caused, not by design flaws, but by contaminants, water, or lubricant degradation. New hydraulic oil has a certain level of particle contamination already present.
When oil is added to the system, further contamination can occur through particle ingression from seals and hoses. Air can also carry moisture and small particles into the system during operation. Using the Filtamax Hydraulic Filter, all of these contaminants are filtered out, keeping the oil continuously clean.
The hydraulic filter contains a manifold that protects the filter housing from pressures up to 5000 psi
TEST RESULTS ON HYDRAULIC SYSTEMS
This graph displays a series of tests done on Filtamax By-Pass Filters by an independent certified lab in Kent, Washington. Notice the reduction of the ISO particle count of 22/20 to 7/0 after just 4 hours.

According to testing done by Caterpillar, oil filtered at 5 microns increases engine life up to 5 times, and increases hydraulic system life up to 50 times. Imagine what you can achieve with a one-micron filtration system.
