Separator Spares & Equipment, LLC is an Authorized IOW Group Distributor and Service Center. IOW Group is a leading manufacturer of separation, filtration, and fluid transfer products.
Pressure Driven Centrifuges
IOW Group’s centrifugal oil separators utilize bowl discs technology. Unlike conventional centrifugal spinners/separators, IOW Group centrifugal oil cleaners use bowl discs to increase the efficiency of separation, dramatically reducing the time that contaminants can stay in the oil. This provides more separation surface area. Bowl disc dramatically speeds up the precipitation of the solids from the liquid.
IOW Group centrifugal oil separators have dirt/sludge monitoring technology, which informs the operator when the separator needs servicing, saving valuable personnel time on otherwise unnecessary cleaning. The CentriClean remote monitor is Modbus or Bluetooth compatible and can be easily connected to your existing alarm systems.
IOW engine oil centrifuges allow you to maximize performance, extend maintenance intervals, and reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) for engine systems and auxiliaries. IOW centrifugal oil separators come standard with Bowl Disc Technology and External Monitoring for greater efficiency. The new standard for performance in oil separation!
Triple Screw Pumps
IOW Group provides a full range of positive displacement triple screw pumps. All IOW pumps fit within the industry-standard footprint for easy installation. There is a choice of standard mechanically sealed pumps or, for a superior seal, IOW Group has a full range of magnetically sealed pumps.
The IOW triple screw pump is compact, powerful, efficient, and reliable. The IOW pumps are designed to endure a long, problem-free operation, even in the toughest environments. IOW Group pumps are utilized in the commercial, marine, navy, power generation, and general industries.

What is the best centrifugal oil filter?
IOW Group has designed, patented, and manufactures the highest performing and only self-monitoring bypass, oil filtration spinner type separator in the world. IOW Group has spent over five years completely re-designing how the traditional centrifuge worked to create a completely new range of centrifugal oil separators. So, what makes IOW Group’s MP centrifugal oil filters so different and better?
- Bowl Disc Technology – Increasing efficiency, by removing even more contaminants.
- Remote Monitoring – Provides operators and systems with valuable insight into its speed, cleaning, and service requirements.
- Fully Sealed Unit – Reducing the risk of cross-contamination between cleaned and dirty oil.
- Distributor Impeller – Eliminates backpressure by drawing in contaminated oil.
Better Technology = Better Results
The combination of protection, performance, remote monitoring, and the ability to extend oil drain intervals has many turning to IOW Group as their filtration solution.

– Reduce Costs
Next generation in centrifugal oil separators, IOW Group separators clean oil using centrifugal force 2000 times greater than gravity. They remove contaminants that cause damage to engines, and they also greatly extend the life of lubricating oil in both engines and gearboxes. They are the highest performing and only self-monitoring bypass oil filtration spinner in the world.
How does a centrifugal oil filter work?
Oil is introduced into the separator bowl at engine oil pressure through holes drilled in the vertical spindle and via the accelerator channels in the bearing distributor.
The bowl then fills up and oil overflows into the top turbine where it exits the bowl via the four speed turbine channels and then out via the nozzles. This, in turn, rotates the bowl, generating the centrifugal force required to remove the contaminants from the oil.
The contaminants migrate towards the outside of the bowl where they are deposited on a removable oil resistant insert. The cleaned oil migrates towards the center of the bowl, where it is expelled by the nozzles in the top turbine, thus perpetuating the cycle.
Unlike conventional centrifugal oil spinners/separators, IOW Group centrifugal oil filters use bowl discs to increase the efficiency of separation, dramatically reducing the time that contaminants can stay in the oil.
IOW Group has improved the sealing between the dirty oil inlet and the cleaned oil outlet. This ensures that there is minimal cross-contamination between the two.
Save Valuable Man-hours
IOW Group centrifugal oil filters also have dirt/sludge monitoring technology, which informs the operator when the separator needs cleaning, saving valuable personnel time on otherwise unnecessary cleaning. The systems are Modbus or Bluetooth compatible and can be easily connected to your existing alarm systems.
Why add a centrifuge to self-cleaning lube oil filter's backflush flow?
The centrifuge removes the fine particles. By removing the very fine particles from the lube oil you are increasing protection. Fine particles act as abrasives to the engine’s moving parts (camshaft lobe, piston rings, etc). Removing particles 2μ or less will help to lengthen the lifecycle and reduce the overall wear rate.
The backflushing flow is directed into the centrifuge. The bowl then fills up and oil overflows into the top turbine where it exits the bowl via the four-speed turbine channels and then out via the nozzles. This, in turn, rotates the bowl, generating the centrifugal force required to remove the contaminants from the oil.
The gravitational force of the rotating disc stack causes the heavy particles to migrate to the wall of the centrifuge bowl. The lighter oil is directed through the outlet ports and drains back into the engine sump.
The combined use of an automatic filter plus centrifuge for the filtration of lubrication oil is easy to retrofit to existing engines. The overall goal of adding an IOW centrifuge to an automatic filtration system is to keep particles of all sizes away from the engine.
