I found this website: www.oilfiltermagnets.com. They sell ceramic magnets for the inside oil filters. So, I've used filtermag and read several threads on bitog. I would be hesitant putting ceramic magnet inside the center. What are your thoughts/opnions? Thanks in advance.......................

Cheers,

Pajero

I would't want a magnet on the clean side of the filter like they show. Hope nobody pops one inside an eCore without thinking. eek

It appears that you discard the magnet with the filter or am I wrong?

Can't the magnets be cleaned?

And do they impede the return flow of the oil through the center of the oil filter?

Seriously?

This is BITOG and every guy who decides to use one of these is going to cut the old filter open and remove the magnet, take several photographs under a microscope, weigh the ferrous debris to a thousandth of a gram and then ask each of us to make an educated guess which components the material is from.

A spreadsheet will be maintained with the date od first use and then a concensus will be made as to what the MCI should be.

Magnet Change Interval.

For those of us who believe the best oil filter is a good air filter, this sort of thing is much ado about nothing.

Is there any merit to installing a magnet to the oil filter?

I've been using Neodymiums for years (since 2007) and there is ALWAYS "stuff" on them

The one thing that they got right and all the other magnet setups got wrong is the idea that the magnet should do its work after the oil goes through the media, not before. That's the problem these magnets solve. Now, the question might be is this needed and if so does this setup work without impeding the return flow.

It looks like you'll need tin snips or a hack saw to get the magnet out for the next oil change or just buy the whole box of magnets from this vendor.

Overall it might be worth the effort and expense for the DIY person and the hard used or long term vehicle.

I suppose that would be helpful for longer OCIs to keep the filter elements clean. But I'm curious if they caught anything the filter wouldn't catch.

Me either. I'd pass on those. On the outside dome end, or around the filter, not the inside.

Thanks, but no thanks. Besides reasons mentioned above, they're designed as disposable. Don't like that idea either. And I might be concerned it could interfere with the bypass function of some filters. Once again though, similar to a filter posted here recently, great promotion on the site. Probably catch some folks.
