helidude Posted November 18, 2011 Report Share Posted November 18, 2011 We've been operating FDC filters for five years and have yet to have one needing replacing before the 100hrs cleaning. That includes working fires, seismic, drill moves, all kinds of work in dusty and erosive environments. That being said, we have spares to swap them out in the field as that's basically the only way you can adhere to the proper cleaning procedure. As long as you maintain them by the book with the FDC soap and oil, you'll be just fine. Our electronic tech records keep track of all the hours, real time, regardless of how often they are swapped, without having to pull your hair out, specifically in the field.
