Magnetic Filtration System
The Tempest Original filter has more media area (311 square inches) than any other aviation oil filter. An internal magnet, designed to attract fine steel particles too small to be caught by the filter media, effectively increases the filtration performance of the filter.
Improved Nut Welds
Nut welds so strong the can will tear before the weld. No more frustration with installation nuts twisting off!
Meets TCM Bypass Specification of 12-14 psi, reducing the risk of premature bypass that can result in unfiltered oil flowing to your engine.
Burst Strength of 600 psi
Significant improvements to the roll seam process used on the bottom of the can substantially improved the design burst strength to over 600 pounds per square inch, exceeding the ARP 1400 standards by 50 percent. Extra strength gives added assurance that Tempest oil filters are made to withstand the harshest operating conditions.
Incorporate specially lubricated synthetic rubber base gaskets to help insure proper torque during installation and easy removal.
Note: All Cessna aircraft modified under Cessna Service bulletin SEB-93-1 or MEB-93-1 require Tempest Oil Filter AA48108. The AA48109 may be used if clearance permits installation.
