General Information: The purpose of the Facet scavenge oil filter system is to clean the engine oil to a much finer degree than the factory equipped strainers. The filter has a 10 micrometre nominal, 25 micrometre absolute filter element. Located in the line from the engine to the oil cooler, the filter prevents particles from contaminating the oil cooler and supply tank and it also prevents contamination from recirculating through the engine. The filter is designed to keep the engine oil clean enough to fly 200 hours between oil changes @DA CSL-1093). In addition, several inspection and cleaning operations associated with the oil system need maintenance every 200 hours instead of every 100 hours @DA CSL-1098). The benefits obtained from the installation of a scavenge oil filter system can amount to a substantial savings in oil, reduced labor cost, downtime and engine overhauls. Facets scavenge oil filters are equipped with a red bypass indicator button which provides an impending filter bypass warning when the differential pressure on the element is above 7*1 PSID. The bypass indicator is inoperative below 100+15F. The filter is also equipped with a bypass valve that opens at ltil PSID.
