Wix air filters stop any microscopic airborne contaminants (such as pollen, dust and asphalt particles) being sucked in by the engine. The quality of the purified air is crucial for the engine to operate properly; pure clean air promotes engine performance, increases torque, and aids fuel consumption. Air Contamination can also increase damage piston rings, bushings and cylinders.
Wix synthetic non-woven panel filters
Synthetic non-wovens have very-good filtration properties. Their absorbency is higher than that of cellulose, but they are less rigid. Therefore, the problem of rigidity is solved by mounting the filter medium in a plastic frame formed through injection. A special mesh protecting against damage during operation is an additional reinforcement. Thanks to this solution, the filter will not deform in difficult operating conditions, ensuring the proper protection of the engine.
Wix panel filters with cellulose blotting paper
These filters are favoured in most of today’s models of passenger car and light commercial vehicle, due to their varied size and shape great care must be taken to ensure each filter can stand the pressure its subjected to under normal driving conditions, to ensure integrity of each filter in selected filters, please stabilisers or a metal retaining mesh is used to strengthen the filter.
Wix round filters
These filters can have the shape of a ring, an oval or a cylinder. However, in today’s passenger cars, the space allocated for the air-intake system is greatly reduced. Therefore, large round filters with a complex construction are intended mainly for high-capacity premium cars. Also, they are used very rarely by car manufacturers.
