Breathing air that contains dust, soot, and other types of particulate matter can make you sick, and prolonged exposure can cause respiratory and cardiovascular disease. That’s why you should always wear an appropriate dust mask or respirator to protect yourself when doing jobs where you’re exposed to such contaminants. The same holds true for the engine in your car, truck, or SUV. If there was nothing to stop dirt and debris from entering the engine, serious damage and eventually total engine failure would result. Your vehicle comes equipped with an engine air filter, to trap dirt and debris and keep them from harming your engine. However, as the filter does its job, dirt and debris build-up on the filter surface, and could eventually reach the point where airflow is restricted, reducing performance and fuel economy. To ensure optimal filtration and engine protection and performance, the air filter must be periodically replaced, and when you’re due for a new one, you’ll find the right filter for the job right here on our digital shelves.
A particulate air filter is a device composed of fibrous or porous materials that remove solid particulates such as dust, pollen, mold, and bacteria from the air. Air filters are used in applications where air quality is important, notably in building ventilation systems and in engines.
