I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW

THESE see-through fluid fil­ter as­sem­blies al­low you to vis­ually in­spect the colour and con­di­tion of the fluid be­ing fil­tered. You can also quickly drain the fil­ter us­ing com­pressed air, ex­pos­ing the fil­ter el­e­ment and al­low­ing you to eas­ily iden­tify con­tam­i­nants and par­ti­cles. This can as­sist in the early diagnosis of faults such as ex­ces­sive bear­ing wear. Fil­ter el­e­ments can be cleaned and re-used and fil­ter hous­ings are ma­chined from 6061 T6 bil­let alu­minium and clear-an­odised. Sight win­dows are high-grade poly­car­bon­ate that is chem­i­cal-, heat- and shat­ter-re­sis­tant. For more in­for­ma­tion, head to bkraceengines.com.au.
