SAE Oil Filter Test Procedure HS-806/2009

The lube oil filter becomes an integral part of the engine lubrication system and is subjected to variations in operating conditions that are difficult to duplicate. However, with the equipment and procedures set forth in this test code, comparisons with effective filters for “in service” applications can be made with a high degree of confidence.

This lubrication oil filter test code is to provide means for evaluating the performance characteristics of full-flow oil filters on bench equipment. This combined with data collected from in-service applications may be used for establishing standards or performance goals for filters tested in this manner.

Sections include:

  • Normative Reference
  • Accuracy of Measuring Instruments and Test Conditions
  • Resistance to Flow
  • Filter Capacity and Containment Removal Characteristics of Full-Flow Filters
  • Single Pass Particle Retention Capability Test
  • Media Migration Test
  • Collapse Test for Lube Oil Elements
  • Inlet and Outlet Anti-Drain Valve Test
  • Ability to Meet Environmental Conditions
  • Installation and Removal
  • Mechanical Tests
  • Relief Valve Performance
