That's the worst case of an oil filter implosion I've ever seen! Just kidding grin! How does that crushed filter compare to other's you've crushed as far as it's "crush ability" or do they all mainly crush basically the same.

My OCD won't let me throw filters away until they're cut open first. I got about a dozen of them sitting in the backyard because of that. crazy

I'm kind of surprised the recycling process doesn't include stripping the media and other non-metallic stuff, but I suppose that would be too expensive for the recycling outfit.

All they would need is a motorized filter cutter of some sort. Could probably disassemble and separate the soft parts from the metal parts in a matter of seconds.

There was a thread a while back showing how they recycle filters be baking them at high temp to just leave metal behind.

If too thick of an oil can cause filter ballooning and eventually explosion,I'm guessing 0W16 was used causing the opposite reaction,an implosion?

That would definitely take more energy than a motorized filter cutter.

Less labor intensive, and quicker. Go look for the thread in this forum (posted maybe 3~4 weeks ago), had a YouTube video showing the process. Or search YouTube for the video.

Labor intensive ? It would be a piece of cake with a machine that you just sit the filter in and it zips the can in two. The filter practically disassembles itself once you get the can cut open.

Go find the video and see how many this recycle center processes. They've come up their procesd for a reason. I wouldn't want to be that guy setting a million oil filters into a machine one at a time.

The way I got the operation pictured in my mind, one guy could disassemble hundreds in a 8 hour shift.
