Operational range for by-pass filtration.

I have recently purchased a truck and will be flying down to Ohio to pick it up as soon as my WR-2017 contract closes. It is a 2001 Volvo with an N-14 and I purchased this truck with the goal to put it on in seasonal work beginning with WR-2018. I will have some chance through the summer and most all of December and January to ready the truck to go to work. I like the idea of by-pass filtration for the oil, especially that the truck really will not be shut down except for service work during the months of Feb-Mar. My understanding is that the by-pass system is a much finer filtering system and therefore stands to reason, a slower flowing system. I would like to know if this can sustain extreme low temperatures, as I will be operating in temps ranging from -20 Celsius to -52 Celsius, with extreme head winds while truck is at high idle unloading.

A oil by pass filter filters about 10 % oil at a time as far as it working in cold my did just fine at-minus 40. Oil by pass filters work great I've ran by pass filters for the last 41 years with no problems

Same for me. While there may be very little flowing thru the bypass if the oil is actually at those low temps, like the engine being shut off overnight in the cold. It flows just fine when oil gets warmed up.
