Generation 2 Filtration - LP Series and HP Series

Generation 2 Filtration - DEMO (SEE THE RESULTS!)

You need more than a standard oil and filter to extend engine life and time between oil changes. Standard oil filters are ‘full-flow’, meaning they filter ‘all’ the oil that enters the fine tolerances of the engine in a single pass. These filters are generally rated at 25 microns and are designed to pass high volumes of oil at high flow rates, limiting their ability to remove high volumes of ‘ultra-fine’ particles 1-15 microns in size (such as soot/carbon). These ultra-fine particles account for the majority of contamination associated with engine wear. In addition, full-flow filters do not efficiently remove the water produced in the combustion process. This causes the formation of acids in the oil, accelerating the depletion of additives, and increases corrosive action within the engine. Full flow filters alone cannot keep oil constantly clean, reduce engine wear or prolong oil. 

Generation 2 Filtration™ ‘bypass’ filtration has the ability to polish small volumes of oil at slow flow rates, down to 1 micron, through the precision wound multi-ply ‘axial-flow’ cellulose element. This removes ultra-fine contamination and water normally missed by standard full-flow filters. With 4 stages of filtration, Generation 2 Filtration™ elements are designed to meet the contamination levels associated with the new generation of engines equipped with sophisticated emission control hardware, including all types of Exhaust Gas Recirculator’s (EGR’s), diesel particulate filters (DPF) and ACERT technology. With the G2F’s ability to work efficiently in these highly contaminated engines, G2F elements have an added advantage when installed on pre 2010 engines.

The HP-Series is designed to handle pressures up to 4,569 PSI/315 Bar, typically found in applications such as hydraulics and transmissions. External contamination arises from many sources including contaminated ‘new unused oil’, airborne particles (dust) and moisture laden air which enters through the breather, cylinder seals, shaft seals, or during maintenance activities. Internal contamination arises when a system ‘self-contaminates’ over time. The main high pressure oil filters are generally rated at 10 µm (human hair = 50 µm, bacteria cells = 2 µm) and have a limited ability to remove water and high volumes of ‘ultra-fine’ particles and wear metals.

Over time these particles accumulate to create a sandblasting effect through the system. Compounded with the presence of water, and the formation of acids, the system is subjected to accelerated erosion, abrasive wear, adhesive wear, fatigue, oxidation, varnishing, gum and sludge formation, decreasing the life and efficiency of the component, creating a catastrophic failure in time. Without the removal of water and ultra-fine contamination, full-flow filters alone cannot keep oil consistently clean.



The LP-Series for low pressure applications less than 116 PSI/8 Bar. Model choice would depend upon the size of the oil pan/system capacity, rate of contamination, and the desired G2F Filter Element change interval.

The HP-Series for high pressure applications up to 4,569 PSI/315 Bar. Model choice would depend upon the size of the oil pan/system capacity, rate of contamination, and the desired filter element change interval.


Hydraulics, transmissions, and high pressure systems play a vital role in the safe and smooth operation of equipment in a variety of industries. These include manufacturing, mining, construction, fishery, transportation, agriculture, forestry, oil and gas, and waste management to name a few. Some direct applications would include:

How it Works

The oil under low or high pressure (up to 4,569 PSI/315 Bar) enters the inlet at the bottom of the unit, travels up into the ‘Integrated Pressure Reduction Valve’, moves up the centre core of the G2F Element, before passing down through the 4-stages of micro-depth filtration. The oil is filtered down to 1 micron then discharged from the outlet of the unit, the polished oil is then returned to the oil reservoir at atmospheric pressure. The G2F Element is to be changed at regular intervals, determined by the rate of contamination produced by the system, and the environment it is operating in. Oil analysis with an ISO particle count is recommended to monitor oil contamination levels, allowing one to meet and exceed targeted oil cleanliness levels.

The G2F Element - The Secret to Our Success

The G2F elements remove virtually everything from the oil with the exception of the additive package. By passing oil through the dense precision wound multi-ply ‘axial-flow’ cellulose element, the housing and the element are designed to exceed the demands of today’s environmentally friendly engines and in any low pressure application. Elements are vacuum sealed and come with a plastic disposal bag ensuring clean and easy element replacement.

Healthy Oil - No Problem

Generation 2 Filtration™ elements remove water at 99.97% from oil, significantly decreasing the formation of acids, keeping the Total Acid Number (TAN) low, diminishing the accelerated depletion of additives and formation of oxidation, varnish, sludge and gum deposits within the component, dramatically extending the life of the equipment and time between oil changes.

Low pressure applications can be found in a variety of working environments, but all are prone to external and internal contamination. With G2F’s ability to remove water at 99.97% from oil, the element dramatically decreases the formation of acids, diminishing the accelerated depletion of additives and corrosive action within the component. On a diesel engine application, this reduction in acid formation keeps the additive package in a healthy state for much longer periods of time, keeping the Total Base Number (TBN) at a high level. By removing ultra-fine particles down to 1 micron, there is significantly less of a burden placed on the additives with less dirt to suspend, dramatically reducing mechanical wear while safely extending the oil change interval in any low pressure application.


Simple to Install - Convenient to Change

Being a ‘bypass’ Filter, G2F can be installed on virtually any hydraulic, transmission or high pressure system. Oil supply can be obtained from a pressure point off the pump or main manifold block. Once filtered, the polished oil is returned to the reservoir at atmospheric pressure. Since G2F polishes oil at a very low flow rate, installation of the G2F Filter will not impede the operation of the system. It does not replace the conventional standard filtration system – it enhances and works in conjunction with it. As long as the system is running, the G2F Element will remove contamination and water missed by standard filters.

A Proactive Approach to Maintenance

G2F is a low cost ‘Proactive’ maintenance asset management tool reducing long-term maintenance costs, while providing short-term savings on oil, standard filter, downtime, waste oil and offering quick return on the capital investment. Common problems can be identified by the condition of the G2F Element.
