Christopher Hubbard, our Founder, is a motorsports enthusiastic and engine tinkerer and was frustrated with the poor performance of conventional oil filters as well as their negative environmental impact. Christopher observed that oil had changed significantly over the past 50 years but oil filters had not changed at all. It was clear to Christopher that the oil filter was the weak link in the oil management system of the engine. This frustration, in combination with the experience Christopher gained while working with classified agents, toxins and diseases while performing lung and liver perfusions at USAMRIID provided the motivation and inspiration to create the HUBB filter.
Seven years later and after millions of dollars invested in development and laboratory testing and millions of miles of field testing, we are pleased to introduce the HUBB filter. It’s no accident that a HUBB filter looks totally different from a conventional filter. And, it’s no accident that HUBB performs dramatically better.
Our ambitious goal is to equip every combustion engine equipped vehicle on our planet with a HUBB filter. Why? Because a vehicle equipped with a HUBB filter performs better, is better protected, saves you money and time and helps the environment. There is simply no reason not to have a HUBB filter on your vehicle.
Formal research and testing on the HUBB oil filter was conducted by Automotive Testing and Development Services, Inc. (ATDS) of Ontario, California. ATDS has previously done extensive work in the area of vehicle durability and emission testing for various automotive OEMs, California’s Air Resources Board (ARB) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
HUBB also worked with a nationally recognized, independent testing laboratory to perform other International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard oil filter testing. They are also well known in the filter industry and performs testing for many brands of filters.
Analysis for fleets that have used the HUBB oil filter was conducted by Blackstone Laboratories, Fort Wayne, Indiana and Polaris Laboratories, Indianapolis, Indiana.
HUBB has been issued a design patent, 2 utility patents and has filed multiple continuations to expand its claims
The patents cover technologies that enable very high levels of efficiency in filtering oil and other liquids and gases.
Highlights of the patents include
