Portable Filter


Lightweight Portable Handcart Filter-Pump

  • Removes Water and Dirt from Oils and Fuels

  • 5 GPM Flow Rate

  • No Tools Required to Change Cartridges



The MP5E is a complete filtration package on wheels. All you have to do is install the filter cartridge, plug it in, and watch it meet your toughest filtration requirements.

Designed for industrial applications, the MP5E uses a large filter cartridge with up to 4500 square inches of filter media. This improves filtration efficiency and capacity, reduces change-out frequency and gives the best long term operating costs.

More than 26 types of filter cartridges are available to meet your specific filtration requirements.



The MP5E Portable Filter can be used for:

Transfer: Remove dirt and water while pumping oils or fuel from one place to another.

Preventive Maintenance: Routine filtering of oil at the machine reservoir extends the life of machine components and the oil itself.

Reclamation: Put spilled oil into a drum, filter it to remove dirt and water, and you can reuse the oil instead of throwing it away.

The MP5E Portable Filter effectively processes:

  • Insulating Oil Quench Oil
  • Hydraulic Oil Gasoline
  • Gear Oil Cutting Oil
  • Lube Oil Diesel Fuel
  • Transformer Oil Kerosene
  • Biodiesel Fuel
