A hydraulic oil filter, an engine oil filter, a transmission oil filter, and a lubricating oil filter all fall under the category of oil filters.
Adaptor for four-cylinder Continental aviation engines that allows for the fitting of a traditional spin-on oil filter. The adapter has a base that is attached to an offset flange by a post.
The oil cooler pad of the engine crankcase serves as the mounting surface for the adapter’s base. Oil inlet and outlet channels in the base continue through the base and post to the offset flange and line up with oil inlet and outlet apertures in the oil cooler pad.
Through an annular groove and a hollow stud, the filter is attached to the offset flange and put in flow communication with the oil passages.
It allows the installation of a spin-on oil filter on four-cylinder aviation engines that do not have an oil filtering system. The device is installed on the engine’s crankcase and doesn’t require the engine to be modified.
It also doesn’t need external lines to transport engine oil from the engine to the filter and back, so there’s no risk of dangerous leaks or total engine oil loss.
The purpose of this invention is to offer an engine oil filtering system that is easy to use, secure, hygienic, and dependable and will prolong the life of the engine.
The Global Aircraft oil filter adapter market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
Concerning F&M Oil Filter Adapters, the NTSB has issued a safety recommendation.
The F&M line of oil filter adapters, which are used on a variety of piston aircraft engines, have received a safety recommendation from the NTSB.
The report should be made known to pilots and owners of aircraft utilising the adapters, who should then take the appropriate measures.
On Continental engines featured in well-liked singles and twins, the oil filter adapter enables the installation of a spin-on oil filter rather than the brass oil screen supplied by the manufacturer.
A Cessna 182 (near Mill Creek, California) and a Cessna 210D (near Ramona, California) were involved in a pair of incidents where the aircraft suffered from oil starvation; it was later discovered that the adapter had been placed in both aircraft.
Two gaskets are used in the installation: a copper crush gasket and a fibre gasket to form a seal at the top of the filter adapter housing and between the oil pump and the filter adapter, respectively.
