Recognized by H&P in 1996, the Halex Coil still impresses and lands itself another feature ten years later.
“The Halex Coil easily attaches to the outside of an existing oil filter. With rising energy costs, the Halex Coil is becoming a preferred alternative for manufacturers looking to extend service life.”
The September/October 2005 issue of this Noria publication features the Halex Coil in the cover story.
“From its origin in the beneficiation of iron ores, the magnet has played a prominent role in the separation of ferrous solids from fluid streams. Even in the control of contamination from in-service lubricants and hydraulic fluids, magnetic separation and filtration technology has found a useful niche.”
The Halex Coil is recommended by description in this 1998 article from the US EPA.
“Many fleet maintenance facilities are using advanced filtration systems along with oil analysis to extend the life of their engine oils. Extending drain intervals through improved filtration can save you time, save you money, extend the life of your engine, and help the environment by saving our national resources.”
January 1997 finds the Halex Coil presented as an innovation of the year for the second year in a row.
“Halex Coil bonds powerful neodymium/iron/boron rare-earth magnet onto spiral coil of spring steel that wraps around exterior of canister-type hydraulic filter to trap and hold ferrous particles against the wall of canister”
“Some new products add to existing filters. The Halex Coil from Halex Development is one example. The magnetic coil slips over the outside of a lube filter and pulls ferrous particles out of the oil stream, increasing the effective capacity of the filter medium.”
