High viscosity gear oils are THICK by definition. They have an inherent resistance to flow, and special considerations must be made when filtering these types of lubricants. Noria expert Jeremy Wright illustrates several ways to effectively and efficiently filter these fluids.

He explains why reducing the flow rate, increasing the pore size or increasing the filter surface area (or a combination of these options) often provides the best solution to this often challenging undertaking.
