When filtering high viscosity oils, you must understand several key factors. This 2-minute, 50-second video explains how high viscosity oils have an inherent resistance to flow and that there are a number of ways to deal with this, including reducing the flow rate, increasing the filter's pore size and increasing the surface area of the filter. Learn which of these three options offers the best solution as well as a few other alternatives you might consider.
