Oil Filter Tests by river_rat on BITOG Forums





Here are the preliminary measurements while we wait for the test tubes to indicate filtration:
We have here some Honda filters courtesy of ThirdeYe with approximate measurement and flow scores.
(The flow score is relative based on the lowest cubic centimeters/second being a 1.0, a 2.0 flowed twice the volume etc. This is a gravity fill calculated approximation in a WD40 bath)

These are the little “thimble” filters that are the newest style:
Honda OES 7B10(?) –Media 131 sq in, medium/course (element flow score 2.8)
Hamp H1540-PLC-505 –Media 126 sq in, fine (element flow score 2.8)
Proline PPL14610 –Media 90 sq in, fine (element flow score 3.5)
PureONE PL14610 (old style with blue can) —Media 100 sq in, very fine (element flow score 1.0)
Fram XG7317—Media 58 sq in, course and very thick (element flow score 1.1)
Fram TG7317 –Media 115 sq in, fine (element flow score 1.6)

These are the traditional larger sized:
Purolator L14459 –Media 83 sq in, fine (element flow score 3.2)
PureONE PL14459 (new style yellow) –Media 84 sq in, very fine (element flow score 1.6)
Proline PPL14459 –Media 80 sq in, fine (element flow score 3.2)
NAPA Gold 1334 –Media 101 sq in, medium/fine (element flow score 2.0)

Notice that generally the small thimbles have more media?
They could put more in the big cans but they didn't.


Test 1: Left to Right; small P1 (PureOne), large Purolator, large P1, large NG (Napa Gold), large Proline, small Fram TG, Honda, small Fram XG, small Proline, Hamp



Test 2: Left to Right: Honda, Hamp, small Proline, small P1, small TG, small XG-----large P1, large Purolator, large Proline, large NG


Again:
Honda OES 7B10(?) –Media 131 sq in, medium/course (element flow score 2.8)
Hamp H1540-PLC-505 –Media 126 sq in, fine (element flow score 2.8)
Proline PPL14610 –Media 90 sq in, fine (element flow score 3.5)
PureONE PL14610 (old style with blue can) —Media 100 sq in, very fine (element flow score 1.0)
Fram XG7317—Media 58 sq in, course and very thick (element flow score 1.1)
Fram TG7317 –Media 115 sq in, fine (element flow score 1.6)

These are the traditional larger sized:
Purolator L14459 –Media 83 sq in, fine (element flow score 3.2)
PureONE PL14459 (new style yellow) –Media 84 sq in, very fine (element flow score 1.6)
Proline PPL14459 –Media 70 sq in, fine (element flow score 3.2)
NAPA Gold 1334 –Media 101 sq in, medium/fine (element flow score 2.0)
