The Garage Professor: Oil Filters- We Put Particles & Filters to the Test!
Transcription: Welcome back. I'm Sandy Ganz, The Garage Professor. One of the most important components of your engine is the oil filter. The oil filter keeps the life blood of your engine clean. Without a good oil filter, your engine wouldn't last long at all. Today's experiment will be a quick demonstration of particles and filters -- Garage Professor style! I'd love a cup of coffee before we get going. Some people can't get their internal engines running without a cup of coffee in the morning. But there's nothing worse than coffee grounds making their way into your cup of morning Joe. Coffee grounds make their way into your coffee because of improper filtration. Let's do a garage experiment and use ball bearing instead of coffee to illustrate our point about coffee filters and oil filters. Let's start with a course screen filter and see what particulars we can catch. This won't do. It's just like cheap oil filters that only catch larger dirt particles. Let's try a fine mesh. This is like a high quality synthetic oil filter. This catches all the smaller bearings. A filter operation is a bit more complicated than filtering different particle sizes. Now let's take a look at the components of an oil filter. The Housing The housing holds all the guts and the seal. Cheap filters mean cheap, lightweight housings. They can cause leaks, or worse, they can burst in cold weather when oil is thick and pressure is high. Price is often an indication of quality. The Bypass Valve This is the bypass valve. The bypass valve is needed if the filter gets clogged, and conventional filter media is known to collapse after as little as 3,000 miles, pouring contaminants directly into the engine. The Anti-Drainback Valve The anti-drainback valve prevents oil from draining back into the engine. This eliminates dry starts. Some filters use low-cost rubber. Better filters use silicone, which has much better sealing and temperature properties. The Gasket The gasket seals between the filter and the engine. Thick heavy gaskets are best. These top-quality materials are less likely to get damaged during vehicle maintenance. And if you're using a longer life oil, you need a quality filter. Most filters are paper or cellulose base, but premium synthetic filters, like Royal Purple's, are based on micro-glass filter technology. It features 99.9% particle filtration at 25 microns, two times the particulate capacity versus regular filters. Synthetic elements have a finer and longer lasting element. It's good insurance for your expensive engine. High quality Royal Purple oil filters cans also extend the time between oil changes, which saves you money. That's our lesson on oil filters.
