Nov. 16, 2007, Greenville, SC – Tempest® and Robinson Helicopter announce they have reached an agreement for Tempest to supply their spin-on oil filter to Robinson. Tempest’s brand of “Original” oil filters was introduced in March of 2005 and features many new product improvements.
Some of the improvements include a magnet providing a secondary filtration system to capture and detect fine ferrous particles. Other safety and product improvements include a PC housing which prevents catastrophic failure of the filter in the event of a weld fracture on the by-pass valve. Tempest has also improved the ADB (Anti-Drain Back) valve to ensure positive oil retention in the filter which assures immediate lubrication on the camshaft at engine start-up.
John Herman, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Tempest said “We are very pleased that a company as highly respected as Robinson has selected our product for their oil filter of choice.”
