Bypass Oil Filter

To begin I am an Industrial Mechanic or Millwright as most people call them and a year or so ago I installed a bypass oilfilter on all the hydraulic tanks in the plant. The reason for this was to illiminate 1-3<micron particals in the oil. That got me thinking. A standard Fram oil filter has a filtration of 30 microns so you could imagine all the the other stuff getting through the filtration which is when I put a bypass oil filter from Filtaclean in my f-150. When I last changed the oil 3k or so ago which was the first change after the bypass was installed the oil was still golden in color which tells me that I'm sending extremely clean oil through my engine. I will also be doing this to my 302 Ranger. The gentleman who approached me at the plant has told me that BMW, the newer ones, which he owns one has this system installed from factory and the warranty/maintenance schedule recommends oil change every 20K. I find this hard to believe but I just thought I would let you all in.

Re: Bypass Oil Filter

I've heard of this. The main reason for shorter intervals between oil changes is because of all the impurities and dirt that the regular oil filter cannot filter out. With the bypass oil filter obviously more dirt is filtered out and therefore you oil life lasts longer. Would you mind posting some pics of your setup? And how much did it cost you?

Re: Bypass Oil Filter

Next time I get the truck in the garage where i can get under it to properly show you all no prob as for cost didn't cost me a cent as I got one free from the distributor that hooked me up at the plant. 15 units at 1000 installed each made him happy.

Re: Bypass Oil Filter

We have try this on some of our CAT's and it does work.
you do have a restricion sensor wich will notify your engine computer on the changes bassed on oil pressure in and out,
This is old technology, and companies like BMW is using it
