A filtering device for removing impurities from oil being returned to a reservoir from turbine oil drains. The filtering device is constructed in separable portions to facilitate selective removal and cleaning of some of the portions while diverting the oil which normally passes therethrough to an unremoved portion. The oil is diverted from a selected portion by inserting a plate into a guide which secures the diverting plate across the oil's normal path to the obstructed portion with additional guides being provided for the diverting plate so that it can be stored therein out of the oil's normal path toward the filtering device.
