Wear tests have shown particles of contamination in the sub-20 micron range are most harmful to rings and bearings. Most trucks are sold with a full-flow filter as their only oil cleansing unit. A study by the Milwaukee School of Engineering determined the filtering efficiency of four top-selling full-flow filters compared with a BE-90 AMSOIL Spin-On By-Pass Filter. The graph shows the By-Pass functioning at 97.6% efficiency in removing particles as small as 3 microns, a feat no fullflow filter can match.
Today the BE filters have been replaced with the Ea By-Pass Oil Filter (EaBP) providing the best possible filtration protection against wear and oil degradation. The filtration efficiency has been increased from 97.6% at 3 microns to 98.7% at two microns.
EaBP working in conjunction with the engine’s full-flow oil filter, the AMSOIL Ea By-Pass Filter operates by filtering oil on a “partial-flow” basis. It draws approximately 10 percent of the oil pump’s capacity at any one time and traps the extremely small, wear-causing contaminants that full-flow filters can’t remove. The AMSOIL Ea Bypass Filter typically filters all the oil in the system several times an hour, so the engine continuously receives analytically clean oil.
By-Pass Filtration Benefits:
- Dramatically Extended Drain Intervals
- Improved Oil Cooling
- Increased Filtration Capacity and Life
- Increased Fluid System Capacity
- Efficient Small Particle and Soot Removal
- Significantly Extended Engine Life
- Equipment Constantly Runs on Clean Oil
- Increased Engine Efficiency
- Remove Particles Less Than One Micro
Oil filtration is critical to engine life. Abrasive particles in dirty oil can quickly destroy critical components and ruin precision clearances in an engine if not removed through filtration. Today’s engines, however, are designed with smaller, lower-capacity oil filters which are harder to get to for servicing. This means less efficient filtration and a reluctance to change filters at regular intervals, leading to a build-up of dirt in the oil.
The AMSOIL DUAL-GARD Remote By-Pass Oil Filtration System is designed to provide superior filtration efficiency, increase oil capacity and improve oil filter accessibility.
AMSOIL EaBP Filters have an efficiency of 98.7 percent at two microns. At normal operating RPMs the EaBP Filter will filter all of the oil in a typical five quart sump in less than 10 minutes.
Superior Filtration Efficiency
A vehicle’s regular oil filter is a fullflow filter. This means that all the oil pumped by the engine must pass quickly through the filter before it reaches the engine. This high flow demand limits the size of particles conventional filters can effectively remove. Particle size is measured in units called microns.
A decent full-flow filter will effectively remove particles down to about 25 microns. But studies have shown that over 60 percent of all engine wear is caused by particles in the 5 to 20 micron range. AMSOIL Ea By-Pass Oil Filters remove particles less than one micron, keeping the oil free of virtually all wear-causing particles.
The superior construction of AMSOIL EaBP Filters provides better sealing and increased longevity along with superior corrosion resistance. AMSOIL EaBP Filters have a marine powder coated exterior; and their zinc-dichromate base plates increase rust protection. EaBP Filters have a nitrile HNBR gasket and an orange silicone anti-drain valve. The two stage pleated and layered cellulose/full synthetic media has an efficiency rating of 98.7 percent at two microns.
When used in conjunction with AMSOIL motor oil and an AMSOIL EaO or Donaldson Endurance™ filter, the EaBP should be changed every other full-flow filter change up to 60,000 miles. When used with other brands of motor oil or full-flow filters, the EaBP Filter should be changed every other full-flow filter change. AMSOIL recommends using oil analysis when extending oil drain intervals.
Increased Oil Capacity
The increased fluid system capacity and filtration life provides improved oil cooling and ensures that equipment constantly runs on clean oil. Engine efficiency is increased, providing extended engine life.
Increased Filter Size
Many auto manufacturers have been using smaller full-flow filters to help squeeze their engines into tighter engine compartments. But reducing a filter’s size severely limits its service life and contaminant-holding capacity.
DUAL-GARD remote by-pass system addresses all the filtration requirements for extended engine and oil life in an economical way.
AMSOIL has designed a high-efficiency by-pass filter element that is also a soot removal device. AMSOIL Ea By-Pass Filters use a synthetic/cellulose sandwiched media. The inner layer of the element is composed of a highly efficient cellulose media covered with a full synthetic media outer layer. These filters remove 39 percent of soot contaminants less than one micron. Soot removal efficiency increases approximately 10 to 14 percent when the EaBP Filter is used in conjunction with a standard full-flow filter.
