New Design of Hastings Lube Filter Elements
At Hastings Premium Filters we have one goal… to protect your engine from damage. As the proven leader in providing the industry with the finest filtration products available, our engineering team is constantly looking for ways to make them work better for you.
We are pleased to announce that we have redesigned several of our lube filter elements. The new design includes a by-pass valve located within the filter itself. The prior filter design did not include a by-pass valve and relied on the by-pass valve within the OE housing to operate properly, even after many years of operation. With the use of our new filter, the OE by-pass will no longer be used.
New Design Feature Includes…
• Built-in by-pass valve with the installation of each new filter
Extensive testing has been performed for proper fit, form and function within the OE housing ensuring maintained performance from the previous design.
The new style filters will be placed into stock as the old style filters’ stock is depleted.
Hastings Engineering Bulletin F09-2R has been created to cover this change in greater detail and is available in PDF format.
