The purity of fuel entering the engine is essential because it affects the wear of engine parts such as injectors, pumps, and fuel-pressure valves. Wix fuel filters provide a correct fuel filtration, essential to ensure the reliable operation of the engine.
Wix filters with connectors
The hermetically sealed metal or plastic housing has connectors suitable for fuel lines. They are used in both petrol and diesel engines. Some models designed for diesel engines have a multi-stage filtration system, which increases their efficiency and extends the service life of the filter.
Wix fuel filter elements
These removable elements are mainly used in diesel engines, installed in a housing integrated with the engine. Today we design filter elements without any metal parts (bottom-caps, cores). This makes their disposal much faster, easier, and cheaper. Such a change has led to the use of plastics resistant to fuel components.
Wix screw in filters
These resemble spin-on filters, but they have no internal valves. This solution facilitates the shutting down of the engine before contaminated fuel reaches. A blocked filter works like a fuse, preventing serious engine failures. Only clean fuel is let into the combustion chamber. The likelihood of the accidental introduction of contaminants into the fuel system during the replacement of the screw-in filters is highly unlikey.
