Default Oil filter system buildup

Good day all.
Not a car guy here, but need some recommendations with selection of car parts for my next build. I need to filter couple gallons of mineral oil that contains small debris (10-100 microns size). Running it through a gravity filter is slow, so I want to build a small pump operated oil filtration system. I tried vacuum filtering, but it's not working as well as i hoped. I want to build a positive pressure oil filtration system. Naturally i am looking at cheapish car oil filters but need your help to piece together the components for the oil filter housing. I do not know how oil filters from different manufacturers interface to the piping system, so need your help with part callouts to make a simple systems that looks like this
HOSE ===== PUMP====HOSE====REPLACEABLE FILTER===HOSE

What i am not sure about would be the housing for the filter and the hose adapters to that housing as well as pump.Pump can be small and even hand operated, i'll be processing about a gallon at a time, but doing it multiple times. I am using mineral oil to separate alkaline metals from the slag formed in redox reaction and need to filter out the slag suspension in oil (Alkaline metals are larger chunks settled at the bottom so won't be in the solution that is being filtered)...

A list of parts available on Amazon would be great. Looking to build something more robust than a $15 oil fryer filter...
Thanks ahead

EDIT:
Forgot to mention, don't have a super garage with disk grinders and welding equipment, (think science lab, not a "junk yard wars" garage), so need parts that can mate using glue or hose clamps and still hold enough pressure to drive oil through the filter.

Reliably filtering particles in that micron range is tricky, the better the oil filter the more efficient reduction you'll get. Purolator One is inexpensive and of high quality

A diesel extraction pump should be able to handle the viscosity

I would pull the oil through the filter rather than push it through.

Thank you. I will give this set-up a try.

What hose adapters should i be looking for to interface with Derale 25708 Remote Filter Mount Kit? What diameter / thread-pitch? any specific / proprietary O rings or will standard O ring of diameter X will fit?

Thanks
