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.
