AMSOIL Ea Air Filters represent a major breakthrough in filtration technology. For the first time, revolutionary nanofiber technology is available to the auto/light truck market.
Nanofiber technology has been used exclusively in heavy duty applications, including the US ARMY Abrams M1 tank. AMSOIL has brought this technology to the auto/light truck market. AMSOIL Ea Air Filters provide the absolute best filtration for AMSOIL customers and major opportunity for AMSOIL Dealers, and with an unmatched four-year/100,000-mile guarantee, AMSOIL Ea Air Filters save money!
Nanofiber is a phrase generally referring to a fiber with a diameter less than one micron. Cellulose fibers, on the other hand, are larger than nanofibers and have larger spaces between the fibers, causing contaminants to load in the depth of the media and plug the airflow path, resulting in higher restriction and less capacity. AMSOIL Ea Air Filters incorporate a specially constructed cellulose media with synthetic nanofibers applied to the surface. Dust and submicron particles are trapped on the nanofiber surface, preventing them from lodging in the filter media depth.
Hereís how it works: Imagine two filtration media, a chain link fence and a mosquito net. Each is required to stop contaminants, in this case tennis balls.
A tennis ball will fit quite nicely into an opening of a chain link fence, but will obstruct the hole almost 100 percent. Now, imagine a tennis ball covering a mosquito net. The tennis ball, at the point of contact with the netting, will obstruct much less filter area than the chain link fence example. In fact, air will flow around the tennis ball all the way to the point of contact. It will take many more particles to obstruct the netting surface area than the chain link fence.
Air Filter Basics
An engine needs air in order for combustion to occur, but the
air drawn in through the induction system is loaded with contaminants. There are over 400 tons of suspended dirt and other contaminants in a cubic mile of air over a typical city. The concentration can be even higher in rural areas where there is frequent travel on unpaved roads. The dirt and contaminants drawn into an engine are the leading cause of engine wear.
The function of the air filter is to trap and hold these wear causing contaminants without restricting air flow. As the filter traps more and more contaminants, air flow becomes restricted, smothering the engine and diminishing performance. The
more wear causing contaminants a filtration media traps and the more contaminants the filtration media holds, while still allowing optimum air flow, the better the filtration media is.
||Studies on the ingestion of particulates show that increased dust passing the air filter results in additional engine wear. For example, a typical part such as a piston ring is exposed to low levels of radiation and then installed into a test engine. As the rings wear, the level of radioactivity decreases. This decrease can be directly correlated to wear.
The nanofiber technology used in AMSOIL Ea Filters surpasses all other technology in efficiency, capacity and service life. With AMSOIL Ea Air Filters, dust and submicron particles remain on the surface and are trapped on top of the nanofibers, preventing particles from lodging in the filter media depth. This produces higher efficiency and higher capacity which extends engine and filter life and reduces engine wear.
Ea Air Filters Capture More Dirt
Efficiency is the ability of a filter to stop dirt and other airborne contaminants from entering the engine. The more efficient a filter is, the more dirt and contaminants it stops. Extensive testing proves that AMSOIL Ea Air Filters are more efficient than cellulose and wet gauze air filters.
Allows More Air Flow
Proper air flow is vital to maximize performance and engine life. Air is required to release the energy from the fuel being used. It takes 1,200 cubic feet of air to combust one gallon of gasoline. Inadequate air flow can cause serious loss of power, poor performance and excessive fuel consumption. Tests show that AMSOIL Ea Air Filters have more than three times the air flow of filters that use cellulose media alone.
Holds More Dirt
A filterís ability to contain trapped contaminants determines how well an engine will run and how long the filter will remain effective. If the capacity is too low, the filter will have to be replaced constantly. When the filter is full, air cannot pass through at the rate necessary for proper engine performance.
AMSOIL Ea Air Filters hold up to 2.5 times more contaminants than cellulose air filters. Since the nanofibers in the media are so small there are more pores per square inch, allowing for higher dirt-holding capacity and lower pressure drop when compared to cellulose filter media alone. Thinner media fibers produce more uniform pore size distribution, improving the filterís overall quality and ability to capture and retain particles. Testing shows that Ea Air Filters hold 15 times more contaminants than a wet gauze type filter. The
capacity is so great, in fact, that the new AMSOIL Ea Air Filters remain effective for a full 25,000 miles or one year before
cleaning. This coincides with the AMSOIL 25,000-mile/one-year motor oil drain interval, adding even more convenience for motorists by consolidating routine maintenance.
