That means less repair work, more uptime and more money for your operation.

"IF YOU HAVE A MACHINE EQUIPPED WITH A NO NAME FILTER, THE MAINTENANCE INTERVALS ARE SHORTER COMPARED TO A CAT FILTER."

"WE'VE GOT EXTENDED RUN TIMES ON EVERYTHING. MACHINES THAT ARE COMING DUE BY THE BOOK FOR A TURBO REPLACEMENT IN 6,000 HOURS... WE'RE GETTING 8,000 HOURS OUT OF OUR SAMPLING LOGS."

"THE MEDIA IS VERY IMPORTANT, THE ROVING THAT HOLDS THE PLATES TOGETHER WITH THE ACRYLIC BASE... THE FILTER IS GOING TO SEE A LOT OF PRESSURE... AND WHEN YOU HAVE A COLD START, IF THAT FILTER DOESN'T HOLD ENOUGH PRESSURE, IT'S GOING TO COLLAPSE AND IT'S GOING TO BYPASS EVERYTHING THROUGH THE SYSTEM."


- Daniel Giurgea, Reliability Engineer, Cat filters

"I BELIEVE (CAT FILTERS) BUY ME HOURS OF ACTUAL WORKING TIME, VERSUS THE COMPETITORS THAT MIGHT BE CHEAPER, BUT I'M NOT GOING TO GET THE HOURS. SO, IN THE LONG RUN I DON'T GET THE PERFORMANCE, I DON'T GET THE PRODUCTIVITY OUT IN THE FIELD."


- Jeff Gatton, Owner, JAG Excavating Inc.
