Baldwin Improves on OEM Venturi Dual-Flow Spin-On Design.
* There are two major differences between standard dual-flow lube spin-on filters and the new Vortex designs:
* First, Vortex dual-flow spin-ons allow 15% of the oil to flow through the by-pass section of the filter instead of the standard 10%. The additional flow is routed through the by-pass media because a low pressure zone is created as oil flows from the full-flow synthetic media through the Vortex nozzle located within the filter. This low-pressure zone pulls additional oil through the by-pass media as compared to conventional dual-flow filters.
* Second, Vortex dual-flow spin-ons have one inlet and one outlet. Oil flowing through the filter is sent directly to the engine to protect vital engine components, rather than a portion being returned to the sump as happens with conventional dual-flow filters.
