WIX Filters has introduced a line of heavy-duty radial lip seal air filters with features designed to improve performance and ease of use.
The metal end cap with a handle on the closed end has been added to strengthen the filter assembly and provide a handle for easy installation and removal; while a molded polyurethane radial seal improves sealing capability and fit on the application, the company says. In addition, a newly developed air jet molten bead application system is engineered to enable a hot melt stabilizing bead to be applied to the pleat pack media without mechanical contact with the bead, creating a smooth, nonflaking stabilizing bead.
Eleven of WIX’s heavy-duty radial lip seal air filters, representing more than 75 applications, already have been converted to the new design and made their market debut in July. Six additional filters are targeted for conversion in 2006.
