Improved Nut Welds – Nut welds are so strong that the can will distort without breaking the welds! During production testing nuts are actually ripped away from the can – the base metal must fail, the welds must not. Using Tempest Original filters means no more frustration with installation nuts falling off.
Improved By-Pass Valve for Continental® Engines – Meets TCM by-pass specification of 12-14 psi, reducing risk of premature bypass that can result in unfiltered oil flowing to your engine.
PC Housing (Patent Pending) – the only filter to incorporate a housing for the by-pass valve to prevent the restriction of the oil outlet should a failure of the by-pass valve occur.
Burst strength of 600 psi – Significant improvements to the roll seam process used on the bottom of the can substantially improved the design burst strength of the Tempest Spin EZ oil filter to over 600 pounds per square inch, exceeding the ARP 1400 standard by 50 percent. Extra strength gives added assurance that Tempest oil filters are made to withstand the harshest operating conditions.
Full Pleat Media – The resin-impregnated, cellulosic, full pleat media is designed for uniform flow and collapse resistance. 312 square inches is the most in aviation oil filters.
Spin EZ® Solid Lubricant – Tempest Spin EZ oil filter’s proprietary solid lubricant allows for easy removal of the filter. Unlike oil, grease or DC4 compound that leave the filter seemingly “bonded” to the engines mount pad, making it nearly impossible to remove, our Spin EZ solid lubricant wont extrude or squirt out from under the seal; allowing for removal without a fight.
