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.
