So with these preliminary results you are prepared to make the leap that relatively inefficient filters, ie. ~55-65% @ 20um, is the answer to the brief and relatively infrequent bypass events. Otoh, perhaps the other OEM filters including Motorcraft, AC Delco and Chrysler would say not so much.

I believe all of Jim's data is ran though a single unit and logged there as well. This is not a cheap randomly assembled set up. And yes, thanx Jim. Awesome contributions as always.

Found it...

I am thinking of all the cold starts my vehicles have in winter and typical warmup times. Also they have a pretty good record of knowing more than most about engineering reliability.

So does Ford...... The Modular is probably the longest lasting gasoline engine on the planet.

Let's keep this thread on topic. I see no reason to fault the MC filter in the posted results. Look forward to additional runs.

Thank you very much for all your work... At the moment im sticking with the fram ultra but like i said im checking every filter i use very carefully.

This is from a while back, not sure if Jim Allen ever did get around to testing a syn media filter. IMHO, the DP would be LESS on a synthetic filter, causing fewer bypass events, & synthetic oil would lower the frequency even more.

[censored] would have been good to see real data on synthetic filters rather than just theory.

Sorry about this being a bit off-topic, but what would you guys estimate the delta-P across a filter medium being with ATF? I'm specifically thinking about the added restriction when using a spin-on transmission filter in the cooler circuit...? BTW, lots of fascinating info in this thread.

You didn't ask this part, but dP across the housing is flow but not viscosity dependent ... I'd expect a proper design to be in the 1-3 psi range. The dP of the media is flow and viscosity sensitive, that is it additionally varies with temperature. In INDUSTRIAL systems, we usually shoot for the lower of 20% of indicator or 25% of bypass with clean media at operating temperature ... at a maximum. Half that is better. Assuming (dangerous to assume) a 15 psi bypass, a clean element might drop 3-4 psi at operating temperature. Our better industrial indicators often have "thermal lockout" to prevent indication below maybe 100F-110F. Good design will have the indicator seeing element dP only, not housing dP. That's not always easy to do.

The delta-p measurements Jim was making were across the whole spin-on oil filter. Most of the delta-p across the filter is from the media itself, and part of the total delta-p is from the base plate holes, ADBV, and center tube holes. I've never seen the split of the total delta-p between all the elements comprising a spin-on filter actually measured by anyone, but my bet is if you measured the delta-p across a spin-on filter with the media removed the delat-p was be very low.

I agree with you 100%; I'm accustomed to assemblies where the bypass is in a housing separate from the element (whether spin-on or cartridge) and the housing connects to plumbing. He and you are discussing engine filters, and I got off topic. Sorry

Does Jim Allen still post here? I always enjoyed his knowledgeable posts. Especially since he and I owned 5.4 3v F150's at the same time. That made his experiments especially interesting to me.
