HUBB Filters

HUBB has introduced a new 8-inch spin-on oil filter, designed for use on Class 2-6 light- and medium-duty diesel engines.

Compared to gasoline-powered engines, diesel engines produce more soot and combustion byproducts which end up in the crankcase. In fact, most of the contaminants trapped by the oil filter are soot and sludge – byproducts of combustion – rather than engine wear particles or dust or dirt from the environment. For that purpose, diesel engines need an oil filter that is much larger and has a higher holding capacity, according to HUBB.  

The 8-inch oil filter features the same patented filter-in-filter design as HUBB's 3-inch filter and is made with surgical stainless steel weave filtering media and two pressure differential values for more efficient oil flow, contaminant capture and increased safety. HUBB’s 8-inch reusable and cleanable filter also helps the environment by eliminating the need to dispose of used filters in landfills. It is backed with an industry first 100,000-mile performance guarantee. 

To back its claims of superior filtration, engine health protection, extended oil change intervals, and reduced carbon emissions, HUBB has undergone independent third party testing by Automotive Testing and Development Services, Inc. (ATDS) as well as extensive field testing with customers.

Avoid Repeating Past Inefficiencies: Build the Truck to Match Today’s Application

By Mike Antich
I asked one fleet manager how he spec’ed replacement trucks for his fleet application. He related that many years earlier an OEM rep spec’ed out his trucks and he has been using the same formula ever since. While this may work in some cases, specifications should be defined by today’s fleet application to ensure the replacement truck is designed to accommodate current operational requirements rather than trying to make your operation conform to trucks spec’ed for yesteryear’s requirements.
