Continuous Oil Rescue Equipment can be quickly and conveniently purchased online


KING OF PRUSSIA, PA, November 19, 2007 ---- Officials of Philadelphia Gear Corporation have announced the online availability of the company's proprietary CORE Continuous Oil Rescue Equipment. Launched as an alternative to traditional barrier filtration techniques, the CORE, available in two models, filters metallic particles as small as one micron (one-millionth of a meter). Unique to Philadelphia Gear, these filters are now available for direct purchase through


"The simplicity of the CORE filter sale offered Philadelphia Gear a unique opportunity to do business with our customers in a whole new way, the Internet," said Philadelphia Gear CEO Carl Rapp. "CORE was a perfect fit for an online ordering system because its price point allows customers to purchase the filter out of their discretionary operating maintenance budgets."

The durability of each CORE filter is matched only by its compactness. Both CORE versions hold significantly more contaminant than a conventional filter because of their three-dimensional storage capacity. This increased capacity also allows for longer periods of operation without service.


Inside the cast aluminum housing is an assembly of five magnets, each surrounded by a set of steel flux plates. A series of "collection zones" are machined into the plates such that oil flow is never restricted, even as debris begins to build up inside the filter. These plates create magnetic fields that strip ferrous metal contaminants out of the lubricant, while keeping the pressure flow at its maximum, constant rate and preventing debris from washing off back into the lubricant; a significant advantage over other methods of filtration.
