Hubb oil filter?

My neighbor runs one on his 74 F/Stock 360 Duster for over 12 years so they must work.
He is not too big on maintenance and really hard on his equipment.
 
Honestly I would just use a tried and true NAPA gold and leave the tree hugging stuff for people who don't like going fast.
How often do you actually change your oil?

YES.....reviewing the HUBB info, it doesn't seem to say what the MICRON filtration rating is or info on changing the media or forecasted longevity or pressure drop across the filter at maximum flow or oil viscosity used or approximate innitial cost and media replacement costs. Just curious.......

Bob, did you look at the "View Benefits" tab? I thought they explained the operation fairly well.

Thank you for the heads up.....from HUBB's web site:
HUBB’s patented design provides your vehicles with the following advantages over standard paper filters:
Are built with a surgical stainless steel weave to capture contaminants as small as 5 microns Not sure how material of construction effects filtering ability....is it just a strainer or woven metal fabric?
  • Include 2 pressure differential valves for increased oil flow and engine safety. Is one the anti-drain back valve; is the second one the bypass valve?
  • Use easy-to-clean, reusable internal parts very possible but does not show the internal parts and how to disassemble the internals
  • Improve oil flow by up to 5 times, when compared to conventional filters, to reduce engine friction. Is this the pressure drop across the media?
  • Require .2 PSI/gallon to push oil flow, compared to 7 PSI/gallon for conventional filters. Is this the anti drain back valve opening point. What is is pump pressure at this point?
  • Increase contaminant storage capacity by 5 times, but do not accumulate unrecyclable oil like conventional filters. Not sure what this means. Dirt is retained by the filter media, but does not say what the media is. What internal seals are replaced at each cleaning...and st what cost?
  • Potential to reduce carbon monoxide emissions and nitric oxide emissions. Study available upon request. Not sure what this means, unless its related to oil consumption or recycling of used oil.
Looked up the cost.....one site lists at $ 150.00 each; But shipping is free. A Wix filter is ~ $ 10.00 each it will take 15 years to payback the initial cost based on net straight line depreciation, not including internal seals. But it guess it depends on one's individual viewpoint and need. I'm dubious...relating to the old days using a canister filter (GM small block and origional poly head 277,303, 318 enhines) that used paper cartridge that could be converted to use a single roll of toilet paper as the filter media ...but....For my application, I'll just stick with the Wix 51515R. Just my opinion of course....im sure others will disagree and have their own thoughts.
