As an equipment owner, maintenance manager or mechanic, disposable filters and funnels are your best first line of defense against dirt and contamination entering your equipment. If you use a reusable plastic, metal or gooseneck funnel, all of your attention to cleanliness is wasted. Wipe your reusable funnel with a clean shop towel and you’ll see. Using clean lubricant for post assembly fills, top offs or service oil changes, poured through a Fast Funnel or Fast Filter, is essential.
The importance of pouring through clean funnels, filtering fluids, and using clean cloths to wipe down dipsticks is frequently overlooked. Particle contaminants introduced into a system break down into smaller particles and get suspended in oil. These particles can scour and gouge surfaces, make the oil more viscous and block oil passages.
