cimtek filter ?

Postby gary » Mon Jul 06, 2009 7:23 am

Sun, Does the cimtek aluminum housing have any advantages over the cast iron?

Do you think it is safer to use a 2micron rather than 10 since they are rated as nominal and not absolute?

Do you ever use the drain cock on the 200 series...I was considering the 250 2 micron w/out one.

Yes its less likely to make poly if you left the same VO in there for months. I never do this.

Yes but it will clog much quicker.

Yes it makes changing the filter less messy.

Are you using these cimtek filters as your primary/and only VO filter?

You get around 10k miles on one at 10 micron?

How well are you filtering your oil before hand?



Do you think these filters would serve well in a unfiltered application? I am spoiled by my dumpster-fill car systems and want to replicate it for my 97 dodge ram.

Yes, plus the stock prefilter/heater just before the lift pump.

Yes.

Very well, see Dieselcraft WVO centrifuge works great-My filter dewater rig

I don't know what you mean, there always is lots of filtering. Dewatering is the harder thing to do if the WVO is old and abused.
