Overview

Tempest AA48109 Spin-EZ Oil Filter.

What’s Tempest’s recommendation for dealing with stuck oil filters? At your next filter change - UPGRADE to Tempest’s patent-pending “non-sticking” SPIN EZ™ aircraft engine oil filters.

Tempest’s SPIN EZ filters are designed to come off easy. Heat, time and pressure can extrude oil, grease, DC4® compound or similar liquid lubricants from between a filter’s rubber seal and the filter mount pad - leaving the filter seemingly “bonded” to the engine’s mount pad - and making it nearly impossible to remove. Tempest’s proprietary SPIN EZ adhered solid seal lubricant stays where it’s supposed to - between the seal and the mount pad’s surface. SPIN EZ solid lubricant won’t extrude or squirt out from under the seal. It prevents the bond forming environment that makes legacy filters stick.

Avoid frustration. Save time and money. No more messy DC-4 compound. No more stabbed cans. At your next filter change, UPGRADE to state-of-the-art Tempest SPIN EZ oil filters - the filter that comes off without a fight!

Note: The Tempest® SPIN EZ® spin-on oil filters’ FAA approved design previously included an optional magnetic inspection aid for maintenance personnel which is capable of attracting fine steel particles to assist with detecting ferrous material during post oil-change filter inspection. Unfortunately, due to supply chain disruptions, Tempest is no longer able to procure this proprietary magnet and that feature will no longer be available. All other components and filtration quality you trust from Tempest® SPIN EZ® spin-on oil filters remain unchanged.

I have been very pleased with al of my dealings with your firm. I received a package which failed to contain the dozen spark plugs I ordered and I was pleasantly surprised that you take the time to weigh your packages and could tell immediately I was shorted and your team was great at fixing the problem.

Q: Re oil filters: Is the Tempest aa48109 the same size/fitment as the Champion ch48109? Any significant differences other than the Tempest having a magnet?

They are both FAA approved filters, and are used in the same applications. The Champion unit measures approx. 5.73" tall, and 3.71" diameter, and the Tempest measures approx. 6-3/16" tall, and 3.75" diameter, and also has a magnet and new Spin-Ez seal.
