Hi
Years ago when I worked on oil furnaces I had to flush the lines after I installed the felt type filters, especilly for the smaller nozzles. I would use the furnace filter as a prefilter before the lister snake filter.

Som small particles seemed to be in the discharge from the filter after a change.

my GTC 10/1 came with felt filter, and my main ship engine uses felt filters - bottom line is that they work.
