Philadelphia Gear Introduces CORE Online

December 4, 2007
Continuous Oil Rescue Equipment (CORE) filters, launched as an alternative to traditional barrier filtration techniques by Philadelphia Gear, are now available for purchase online at  According to the company’s press release, the CORE filter boasts a three-dimensional storage capacity that allows for longer periods of operation. Inside the cast aluminum housing is an assembly of five magnets, each surrounded by a set of steel flux plates. “Collection zones” are machined into the plates to prevent oil flow restriction. These plates create magnetic fields that strip ferrous metal contaminants out of the lubricant while maintaining pressure.  “The simplicity of the CORE filter sale offered Philadelphia Gear a unique opportunity to do business with our customers in a whole new way—the Internet,” says Carl Rapp, Philadelphia Gear’s chief executive officer. “CORE was a perfect fit for an online ordering system because its price point allows customers to purchase the filter out of their discretionary operating maintenance budgets.” For more information:Philadelphia Gear King of Prussia, PA
