Default Cim-tek Bio-tek filter Temperature rating?

Cim-tek Bio-tek filters - 70057 - http://www.jmesales.com/catalog/prod...o.aspx?id=6682

Skyski originally turned me onto these. I have used this filter (2 mic version) for a few years (3000+ gals) and always wondered what the max temperature rating is? It is installed between my CF and my clean veg refueling tote in case a bug or some other shit gets into the top of my CF barrel after a spin. I usually wait for the veg to come down to 100 degrees before I pump from CF through the filter to the clean tote, but I could shave a few hours off my cycle if I could pump 150 deg veg through them to the clean tote with confidence.

I've tried this filter on the clean refueling tote to avoid the cool down period but it had too much restriction in the winter to pump clean veg to the trucks.

Anyone know max temp rating or have experience?

I've run one. Not sure on the temp rating. What's the difference between the microglass and the hydroglass?

I've put some pretty hot oil thru these - but never looked for a temp rating...

IIRC, the microglass is a particulate filter and the hydroglass has water-separating properties. I can attest that the microglass filter will continue to filter watery/wet oil at the bottom of the tote without slowing down AT ALL! By comparison, any of the cellulose/paper element filters will generally stop up in short order in the presence of water or an emulsion. I generally use a 10mic Goldenrod filter before the 2mic BioTec for this extra 'insurance'.

I was running the hydroglass but they don't carry my size anymore. Guess I'll be going to the micro. I've cleaned about 300 gallons and now it will hardly trickle thru at about 35psi

Wow, 300 gals on the hydroglass...I've got to have over 3000+ gals on the micro with no pressure loss or flow restriction. I will be ordering the microglass ones again then. I don't have an issue with water by the time its through the CF so the hydro ones shouldn't be needed.

Unless someone out there has a suggestion on a higher temp rated (100deg +) biodiesel or wvo filter for final filtering?

Thanks

Why not use your Donaldson take off filters

You gotta start burning grease before you get those trophies
Sorry Vandy, that's an easy one
