Hot oil through cimtek filter?

Postby gary » Tue Sep 30, 2008 5:26 pm

Sun, I purchased the 2 m cimtek you refered for polishing after the cf filter. My ? is, is it ok to run the hot oil(160f) through it or does that temp damage the element. By the way cimtek recommended a "special" element for vo use...I got the regular one. Thanks

It hasn't damaged mine in 2 years use in my truck at 160-190F. I used the regular one, did they say what was special about it?

They said that the vo would brake down the paper element and the special element is made from material that can handle it.

VO doesn't break down paper elements, paper is in the filters that most people use with VO. Water does break down paper, so maybe thats why he said it since many have water in their VO.
