Local Wood Fiber — Wood absorbs water and acids (extending lube oil drain intervals) and improves the filter's flow characteristics. Our wood is grown and processed here in Wisconsin, for excellent cost control.
Socks & Center Tubes — Our socks and tubes are made in-house which provides cost control, quality, and availability.
String Spacing — Filtration Systems has string spacing every ¼-inch which is 4-times higher than industry norms. This result in a more stabilized media and higher filtration efficiency.
Cotton Media — Cotton's fine fiber diameter anoliophyllic properties make it an ideal medium for hydrocarbon filtration. We use only natural cotton fibers (not textile waste) in our products
Swirl Flow Design — Filtration Systems' patented Swirl Flow™ depth elements are a dramatic break-through in filter technology. By alternating layers of low and high density media, and balancing the ratio of circumferential to radial flow, the media layers progressively load with dirt, like peeling an onion. The result is an incredibly long-life filter, designed for reliable performance at low cost. Our depth filter elements last longer and perform better than pleated paper elements
Filtration Systems has a complete line of air filters for small engines and generators, as well as larger engine air-intake filters with metal end caps. Our engine air-intake filters are designed for low restriction and high dirt-holding capacity. The end caps can be either stamped metal or molded plastic. All come with resilient gaskets for positive seal to prevent leakage. Replaces Wix, Fram, NAPA, Baldwin, Nelson and Donaldson.
These filters are made with a vinyl material known as "plastisol," which bonds the pleated paper media. They also have soft rubber gaskets, to seal the filter in its housing.
The cellulosic paper media meets or exceeds the OEM performance specifications.
The pleat pack is protected with either a perforated metal, expanded metal or woven wire mesh screen outer wrap.
- Perforated metal, expanded metal or woven wire mesh outer wraps provide strength and protection.
- Filter media is resin-impregnated pleated paper, heat-cured for added strength.
- Molded or stamped metal end caps bond the filter and have integral gaskets.
