The engine’s combustion chamber must remain clean, and therefore it also must be protected by a filter which prevents pollutants reaching the oil. Wix oil filters reduce the wear of close moving parts of the engine and decreases the risk of damage.
Wix spin-on filters
This type of filter was invented by engineers at the WIX Filters Laboratory in 1954, and has become a world standard. This filter consists of an element located in a steel-threaded housing, with which the filter is screwed directly onto the engine body. Spin-on filters are easy to replace and have a construction which is resistant to various factors (e.g. high pressure). Replacing the spin-on oil filter can be done virtually without the risk of introducing impurities into the engine oil system.
Wix oil filter elements
Oil-filter elements are mounted in a tight housing which is integrated with the engine. This housing contains all the elements required for fitment and promoting proper function of the oil filter within the system. Oil filter elements contain no metal parts, bottom-caps and cores are made from modern plastics, which facilitates the disposal of the filter.
