High-Viscosity Filter Cart


In the past choices were very limited when it came to filtering lubricants with viscosities greater than 500 SUS @ 100ºF. Now Trico offers a solution with our Portable Filter Cart System. The problem with attempting to filter a high viscosity oil with a lower viscosity system is that the pump and filters are not designed to work with higher pressures required to push high viscosity fluids through the system. As a result these low viscosity units operate primarily in “bypass” mode where little if any of the high-viscosity oil gets filtered.

Trico’s High-Viscosity Gear and Lube Oil Portable Filter Cart System is specifically designed for high-viscosity fluids associated mainly with gear oils and can filter oils up to 7500 SUS @ 100ºF (1600 cSt @ 40ºC).

To ensure that the equipment receives the cleanest oil possible, for increased equipment life, Trico’s Portable Filter Cart System provides four filter elements for increased holding capacity..

A variety of filter elements are available to meet recommended manufacturer cleanliness levels.


  • Bypass Valve - Allows transfer of oil without filtering.
  • Oil Sampling Ports - Two sampling ports available to monitor condition of oil.
  • Quad Filters - Four filter elements for increased holding capacity
  • Industrial Strength Tires - Wide tires capable of getting over large grate gaps.
  • Differential Pressure Gauges - Indicates when elements need to be changed.
  • Heavy Duty Cart - Rugged and built to last.
  • Hose & Wand Assembly - Heavy steel wire reinforced clear PVC hoses with 3 ft long metal wands.
  • Drip Pan - Keeps work area safe and clean.
