The MP5 is a compact, portable filter system designed for use at the site of contaminated oil. It is easily wheeled to the sump or reservoir by one person.
The MP5 is completely self-contained and requires only electricity for operation. Standard features are listed on the reverse side. Note that the unit incorporates a reliable gear pump with an integral pump pressure relief valve to prevent system over-pressure.
A selection of high performance filter cartridges is offered for use with the MP5. Cartridge changes can be made in only a few minutes.
MP5s can be used with injection molding machines, mobile hydraulic equipment, small transformers, circuit breakers and various other types of equipment. Applications are as follows:
New Oil – Even new drums of oil are sometimes contaminated with dirt and water. The MP5 can remove this contaminant as it pumps the oil out of the drum.
Machine Oil Reservoirs – Good preventative maintenance practices include the routine filtering of used oil. This recycling procedure also extends the useful life of the oil.
Spilled and Leaked Oil – The MP5 can recover and recycle contaminated oil which would normally be discarded.
Types of Oil Include the following:
- Hydraulic Oil
- Lube Oil
- Insulating Oil
- Cutting Oil
- Circuit Breaker Oil
- Quench Oil
- Turbine Oil

The MP5 portable filter accepts all Velcon standard 618/718 size cartridges. Contact your local Velcon representative for a complete listing of available cartridges and their applications.
Dirt Removal: For particulate solids, use FO-718PL Series large surface area pleated media cartridges, available in micron ratings from 0.3 to 50. For colloidal contaminants, FO-618FGA Series Fiberglass depth cartridges, available in micron ratings from 5 to 25, are recommended.
Dirt and Free Water Removal: Use Aquacon® AC-718 super absorbent cartridges to remove up to two quarts of free water and also filter particulate solids. Available in micron ratings from 0.3 to 5.
Dissolved Water Removal: Use Superdri® cartridge model SD-718 to remove dissolved water from insulating oil. Specify Flow Control Bypass option to reduce 5 gpm flow rate to 3 gpm recommended flow rate for SD-718 cartridge.
Specify Model numbers as shown below. Units are shipped without cartridge.
