? on hyd filters for DIY bypass oil filter

Looking for info for Cat hydraulic filters for a DIY bypass filter setup.

Numbers are 102-2828, 3 micron nominal,Beta rating 20/75=2/3
126-1814,3 micron nominal,Beta rating 20/75=3/4

Anybody know whether or not a hydraulic filter will work for engine oil?

Any help would be appricated.

Thanks
Rob

Re: ? on hyd filters for DIY bypass oil filter

Rob -- Hydraulic filters are oil filters, so I would think the media would be appropriate. However, I'm not sure if the specific part numbers you listed would have a flow rate problem based on the viscosity difference. You would also need to know area of filter media or some type of flow information.

As a suggested alternative, you may want to try using the Baldwin B164. It is the filter we use in our base kits. Another idea would be accessing the CAT cross reference guide and checking if the filters you are looking at are a cross reference to it?

Thanks for reading, Dale

Dale Thank you for your help in the past and now.

I know the flow ratings of the filters and micron and beta ratings but not sure what you mean by "area of filter madia".

Thank you for taking the time to try to help me.Im glad you are back posting some.Keep up the good work.
And yes my intake is one of yours [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: ? on hyd filters for DIY bypass oil filter

You may check on a temp rating. Hydraulic systems most likely never see the temps of engine oil.

Re: ? on hyd filters for DIY bypass oil filter

Temp considerations are a good point as well, thanks for bringing it up.

Rob - the area of the media will let you know how much volume you will be able to achiive once you know the flow rate of the media. Obviously, using the same media, the larger the surface area the more you will be able to flow at the same filtration efficiency level.
