Protect the engine in your 2001-2016 GM 6.6L Duramax while saving time and money with the HUBB 8501 Lifetime Reusable Oil Filter. The HUBB filter looks and works completely different than a conventional filter and protects your engine much better. The difference starts with how the oil flows into the filter. The HUBB filter features two large kidney shaped openings in its baseplate that channels the oil around the exterior of the primary filter. These large openings dramatically increase the oil flow in comparison to a conventional filter.
HUBB deploys a patented filter-in-a-filter design. Most of the oil is filtered by the primary filter which filters oil from the outside to the inside. But when the pressure increases during acceleration HUBBs 1st pressure differential valve opens and oil flows into the secondary filter where it is filtered from the inside to the outside of the filter. This opposite flow from the primary filter eliminates cross contamination of the clean and dirty oil, allowing only the clean oil to flow through the center of the filter and back into the engine.
The purpose of the secondary filter is to enable HUBB to keep filtering your oil at higher pressure. Conventional filters do not have this capability and when faced with increased pressure go into bypass mode which contaminates the oil as the filter stops working. To further protect your engine, the HUBB filter has a 2nd pressure differential valve that opens when pressures become excessive in extreme operating conditions. This 2nd pressure differential valve ensures that the engine is never without oil. And unlike conventional filters, this 2nd pressure differential closes when the oil flow returns to normal.
HUBBs patented design increases the oil flow rate to the engine by 5 times the rate of a standard oil filter and HUBBs filter efficiency is 99% of contaminants at 25 microns versus only 52% for a conventional filter. In combination with its patented pressure differential values, the HUBB filter provides superior and longer protection for your engine.
Better Oil Flow = Better Protection
The HUBB Filter has been specifically engineered to reduce friction. Increasing oil flow the right way can help reduce engine friction. Independent laboratories have proven that HUBB increases oil flow by as much as 5 times over the competition. No filter on the market provides the oil flow protection of HUBB.
Simply put, the HUBB filter filters better which means your oil stays cleaner, longer. Independent laboratories have shown that HUBB is 99% efficient at removing contaminants at 25 microns whereas most conventional filters are only 52% efficient. Thats a huge difference and is central to why you can safely double your oil change interval with a HUBB filter.
Better Performance Starts with a Better Oil Filter
Help your vehicle run better with a HUBB oil filter. HUBB filters use a patented, filter-in-a-filter design that is 99% efficient at removing oil contaminants at 25 microns (versus 52% for conventional filters).
No Dirty Oil Mixing with Clean Oil
When oil flow is restricted, a conventional filter opens its by-pass valve in order to maintain oil flow and protect your engine. However, clean oil is mixed with dirty oil when the bypass valve opens. And, since the bypass valve is at the bottom of the filter where contaminants accumulate, there is a risk that these stored contaminants will be released into the engine. The HUBB filter is based upon an entirely different design that uses two pressure differential valves rather than a single by-pass valve. This design ensures that dirty oil is not mixed with clean oil in high pressure situations. In addition, the HUBB design traps the contaminants in a way that there is minimal risk of contaminants being released into the engine.
HUBB Filter Cleaning System
The patented HUBB filter lasts a lifetime because the 2 inner filters are easy to clean and are reusable. The contaminants captured by the HUBB filter can be removed from the inner filters by using the HUBB Filter Cleaning Machine in combination with specially formulated Cleaning Concentrate. The HUBB system is MSDS compliant and does not require any special handling. Cleaning machined and concentrate sold separately.
