Heavy-Duty Bypass System

Heavy-Duty Remote Filtration System and Ea® Bypass Filter combine to provide outstanding oil filtration efficiency
Bypass oil filtration introduces a secondary filter with the purpose of eliminating nearly all contaminants from engine oil. Bypass filters have high capacities and eliminate much smaller particles than full-flow filters, including soot. Bypass filters reduce engine wear through high filtering efficiency, which means they have higher restriction and must be used in conjunction with a full-flow filter.
Bypass 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. Bypass filters have a high pressure differential, causing the oil to flow through them very slowly and allowing for the removal of smaller contaminants. It is called bypass filtration because the oil flows from the bypass filter back to the sump and bypasses the engine. This continual process eventually cleans all the oil in the system, reduces long-term wear and can dramatically extend the life of the engine.
AMSOIL Heavy-Duty Bypass System
The AMSOIL Heavy-Duty Bypass System includes the mount, mounting hardware, 15 feet of hose, hose fittings, installation instructions and Bypass Filter (EaBP120). Available separately, the oil sample valve (BK30) eases the process of collecting oil samples. The system provides most of the necessary fittings, except the fitting required to pull pressurized oil from the engine and the return fitting to return oil to the sump. Other parts and fittings can be purchased from any hydraulics or heavy-duty equipment outlet.
High-Quality, Durable Construction
The Heavy-Duty Bypass Filtration System is constructed of high-quality cast aluminum with a steel filter spud that has been thoroughly tested in on-road and severe off-road service. The mount is finished with a thick layer of powder-coated paint to provide maximum resistance to the degrading effects of road salt, debris and engine-compartment chemicals.
General Installation Guidelines
Determine the location of a pressurized oil port on the engine. Pressure ports are usually found on the main oil galley or in close proximity to the full-flow filter head assembly. The oil flow from this source should be plumbed into the inlet side of the filter mount. The outlet will be directed to a low-pressure point on the engine, typically a port located at or near the oil pan. Detailed instructions are included with the Heavy-Duty Bypass Filtration System.
AMSOIL Ea® Heavy-Duty Bypass Filter
The AMSOIL Ea Heavy-Duty Bypass Filter (EaBP120) features a proprietary media that removes 98.7% of all contaminants two microns or larger (ISO 4548-12), and provides superior soot-removal efficiency. It comes complete with a marine powder-coated finish for long filter life, even in extreme conditions.
Increased Oil Capacity
The Ea Heavy-Duty Bypass Filter increases the fluid system capacity by approximately one gallon, depending on length of hose and distance the filter is mounted from the engine. The additional oil and extended filtration life provide improved oil cooling and ensure equipment constantly runs on highly filtered oil. Engine efficiency is increased, providing extended engine life.
Extended Service Life
The Ea Heavy-Duty Bypass Filter offers long service life. Do not exceed the limits listed in the chart below. Extended oil drain intervals should always be accompanied by an oil analysis program.
The Ea Heavy-Duty Bypass Filter was designed for heavy-duty applications. Its robust construction and superior filtration performance provide maximum protection over extended drain intervals, reducing downtime, increasing equipment life and saving money.

Oil filterBest oil filter hands down
Love the idea of these filtersBy  Anonymous,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Dublin, Ca.  on  October 15, 2020Look, I have no idea if they actually help the engine, but I love the concept and I am too lazy to do oil analysis to find out more. One real benefit was when my oil sending gauge showed zero as I was climbing a grade with a 41' 5th wheel, I was able to pull over and remove the oil fill cap to see the oil still pumping which saved our trip. If that's not making sense, their kit for these filters has the return line going into the fill cap, hence the oil stream.
Amsoil filterits a great product price way too high
Great ProductThanks so much for this product. Installation is easy. More importantly is my oil looks so much better now after only a few thousand miles.
😄Diesel Driver😄I put the Dual Filter System on and switched to the top Quality Oil and Filters on my GMC gas powered 2500 pickup in 2000 when the truck was new, and purchased to tow a 34’ Airstream Travel Trailer. By 2004 I had put just over 100,000 miles on the truck with about 90% of that towing the trailer. Changed the oil one time each year and the filters two times each year and had no problems at all. I purchased a 2004 GMC Duramax Diesel 2500, again for towing the Airstream. I installed the Dual Filter System After breaking.. I put 125,000 miles on the truck mostly towing the Airstream, then sold it to a friend that told me yesterday he had 212,000 miles on it now using the AMSOIL and Filters I supplied him. I purchased a 2015 Chevy Duramax 3500 the day I sold the above truck. I installed the dual filter system on the new truck, and took off to Alaska for the second time towing the Airstream trailer. I now have 63,00 miles on this truck with no problems. I still change oil and filters on the one time per year for oil and twice per year for filters. I am a very Happy AMSOIL Customer!!!
Wrong filterThese are awesome filters. They allowed me to extend my drain intervals (using oil sample kit) to over 35,000 on my duramax diesel in my pick-up. The Lab kept telling me to go another 5000 miles after each test, once I got to this point, I decided I don't drive that many miles a year. I now just change oil before our long trip each year( towing firth wheel with a flatbed behind that.
Great FilterI use these filters on all product at our home. Vehicles , lawnmower and even use it to filter the solution in my parts washer.
