polishing filter clogging?

Postby gary » Sun Dec 28, 2008 1:09 pm

What would cause my cimtek filter to clog prematurely?
I am cfing correctly.
The only thing is my 55 gal drum does not have a coating??
What pressures and flow should i expect after a couple hundred gallons of cf oil at 160?
Maybe teflon and pipe dope from initial setup?
Im now getting only a trickle at 160 and 50psi.

My brother just told me way he started the gear pump the valve to the cimtek was open and so I think that was the problem.
Even though it was only open for a few seconds that is enough to clog it..right?
Sun, Is there a replacement for the cimtek I can find locally for less...no shipping? I use the 70806 300-02
