HUBB's spin-on oil filter's patented filter-in-a-filter design uses surgical stainless steel weave rather than the paper of conventional filters to improve oil flow by five times, while capturing more contaminants from combustion so engine oil stays cleaner, longer.
As a result, HUBB's filter is reusable and cleanable, an environmentally friendly design that eliminates the need to dispose of used filters in landfills. The design of the HUBB filter utilizes reusable inner parts that are easy to clean, according to the company.
The HUBB filter has undergone independent third party testing by Automotive Testing and Development Services, Inc. (ATDS) and Southwest Research Institute (SRI) as well as extensive field testing with customers. The filter was developed by Christopher Hubbard, the company's founder and chief scientist, after he served with the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID).
