NEW!!! AMSOIL Absolute Efficiency
By-Pass Oil Filter Elements
EaBP Bypass Filters
AMSOIL EaBP Filters are high efficiency bypass filters that also remove soot. They
provide the ultimate in protection against wear, oil degradation and

AMSOIL Ea By-Pass Oil Filters (EaBP) provide the
best possible filtration protection against wear and oil degradation. Working in
conjunction with the engine’s full-flow oil filter, AMSOIL Ea By-Pass Filters
operate by filtering oil on a “partial-flow” basis. They draw approximately 10
percent of the oil pump’s capacity at any one time and trap the extremely small,
wear-causing contaminants that full-flow filters can’t remove. The AMSOIL Ea
By-Pass Filter typically filters all the oil in the system several times an hour,
so the engine continuously receives analytically clean oil.
AMSOIL EaBP Filters have an efficiency of 98.7 percent at two microns, compared to
the AMSOIL BE Filters’ 98.6 percent efficiency at three microns. At normal
operating RPMs the EaBP Filter will filter all of the oil in a typical five quart
sump in less than 10 minutes.
The superior construction of AMSOIL EaBP Filters provides better sealing and
increased longevity along with superior corrosion resistance. AMSOIL EaBP Filters
have a marine powder coated exterior. Their zinc-dichromate base plates increase
rust protection, and they feature the same dimensions and threads as BE-90, BE-100
and BE-110, so they are compatible with existing AMSOIL bypass filter mounts. EaBP
Filters have a nitrile HNBR gasket and an orange silicone anti-drain valve. The two
stage pleated and layered cellulose/full synthetic media has an efficiency rating
of 98.7 percent at two microns.
When used in conjunction with AMSOIL motor oil and an AMSOIL EaO or Donaldson
Endurance™ filter, the EaBP should be changed every other full-flow filter change
up to 60,000 miles. When used with other brands of motor oil or full-flow filters,
the EaBP filter should be changed every other full-flow filter change. AMSOIL
recommends using oil analysis when extending oil drain intervals.
The increased fluid system capacity and filtration life provides improved oil
cooling and ensures that equipment constantly runs on clean oil. Engine efficiency
is increased and engine life is extended significantly.
AMSOIL has designed a new high-efficiency by-pass filter element that is also a
soot removal device. AMSOIL Ea By-Pass Filters use a synthetic/cellulose sandwiched
media. The inner layer of the element is composed of a highly efficient cellulose
media covered with a full synthetic media outer layer. According to ISO 23556
testing, these filters remove 39 percent of soot contaminants less than one micron.
Soot removal efficiency increases approximately 10 to 14 percent when the EaBP
Filter is used in conjunction with a standard full-flow filter.
AMSOIL will continue to offer three bypass filters: the EaBP90, EaBP100 and
EaBP110. All vehicles and applications that can accept the AMSOIL BMK11, 12, 13,
15, 16, 17 and 18 filter mounts can use the EaBP Filters. Per AMSOIL bypass
installation instructions, AMSOIL recommends bypass filters be mounted as close to
vertical as possible. The filters are equipped with an anti-drain back valve in the
event they are mounted at an angle.
Who Uses Bypass
Bypass filtration comes standard on all heavy-duty
turbo diesel engine applications from OEMs such as Cummins, Mack and many more. It
has been available as standard equipment or as an option from OEMs like
Caterpillar, John Deere, Case and others, but it isn’t just for heavy-duty diesel
operators. Bypass filtration is a valuable commodity for anyone that wants to
extend drain intervals and prolong engine life. It is also beneficial to vehicles
that are exposed to high levels of contaminants on a regular basis.
