Magfiner filter splits

It's brutal cold here I fired up the beast Sunday morning -15 overnight temp and to my surprise all my power steering fluid puked out on the floor when my Magfiner filter split open. Awesome. I fired up the propane heater to warm things up and removed it reconnecting the hose to the cooler. How does everyone else have theirs installed? I'm planning to install some tees and make it a bypass setup once it warms up a bit. It's a pita to get at when the plow is on the truck. I just cut into top hose on the cooler and added the filter when I put it on. I'd prefer to get it up someplace more convenient and less likely to damage. Do you think it cracked open from the pressure?

Thanks

Is the magnefine the common plastic style one or the aluminum type?

I have one of the plastic style ones on my old 00' 1/2 ton dodge 1500 transm cooler line and it's never split. Wonder if some frozen moisture or movement of the hose under pressure made it crack due to being brittle.

It's the plastic style. I'm going to relocate it since it's in a bad spot. I've got a second on the shelf.

Probably a slight defect that would not be a problem except at that temp level of the plastic and higher pressure with the viscosity increase of the fluid.

I think most installed them in the return line off the HB on the 7.3, but it seemed like the practice stopped with 6.0.

What's HB stand for?

As long as you have it installed on the return line there shouldn't be much pressure unless it is becoming plugged.HB for hydraulic booster?

Guess I better look I may be on a pressure side just assumed the cooler would be return side. As usual assuming may have made an ARSS outta me. I put it in the exit side of the cooler down in front - top hose.

Yep, hydrobooster. Sorry, terminology from past life.

No problem I was close my thought was hydraulic brake.

Well it was warm enough to get my bypass and new filter installed today. I opted to leave it connected just before the cooler up front but have it in a bypass loop now so even if I have a problem again it will be easy to block off and also easier to swap out. I guess I will call this power steering "flush" in my notebook. New filter, new Valvoline synthetic Dex/merc/LV (red bottle) and 1 oz of Archoil 9100. I had been running the Valvoline before.

Much easier without a Western Unimount plow in the way.
