AMSOIL Achieves Absolute Efficiency With New Filter

eaa_air.jpgThe introduction of AMSOIL Ea Air Filters represents a major breakthrough in filtration technology. For the first time, revolutionary nanofiber technology is available to the auto/light truck market. It's another first for AMSOIL!

Nanofiber technology has been used exclusively in heavy duty applications, including the US ARMY Abrams Ml tank. AMSOIL has brought this technology to the auto/light truck market. AMSOIL Ea Air Filters pro- vide the absolute best filtration for AMSOIL customers and major opportunity for AMSOIL Dealers, and with an unmatched 4-year / 100,000-mile guarantee, AMSOIL Ea Air Filters save money!

Revolutionary Technology 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 exclusive synthetic nanofibers applied to the surface. Dust and sub-micron particles are trapped on the nanofiber surface, preventing them from lodging in the filter media depth.

Here's 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.

The new nanofiber technology used in AMSOIL Ea filters surpasses all other technology in efficiency, capacity and service life. With AMSOIL Ea Air Filters, dust and sub-micron particles remain on the surface and are trapped in 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.



AMSOIL Ea Air Filter media removes 5 times more dust than traditional 
cellulose filters and 50 times more dust than wet gauze.

AMSOIL Ea Air Filters have more than three times the airflow of cellulose.
Both wet gauze and Ea are below 0.5 inches of initial restriction.

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 airflow of filters that use cellulose media alone.

Holds More Dirt

A filter's ability to contain trapped contaminants deter- mines 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.

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 filter's over- all 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.


How should EaA filters be cleaned?

EaA filters should be cleaned every year or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. Carefully remove the filter from the housing. Clean the housing with a shop towel, being careful not to knock contaminants into the air inlet. Filters can be cleaned by carefully vacuuming the filter media on the dirty side, or by holding the filter with one hand and carefully blowing the filter media at a 45 degree angle on the clean side of the filter using low- pressure shop air.

Can these filters be cleaned with water?

AMSOIL does not recommend cleaning the EaA filters with water. Use only a low suction vacuum or low-pressure compressed air.

What if I punch a hole through my filter when cleaning? Will AMSOIL give me a new filter?

No, AMSOIL provides detailed cleaning instructions on each air filter box. It is the owner's responsibility to properly care for the filter.

Can I use tack oil on the EaA filter to enhance the performance?

Nothing should be applied to the surface of the EaA filter. Applying tack oil on the EaA filter will render it useless.

What kind of vehicles are the AMSOIL EaA Filters designed for?

AMSOIL EaA filters are designed for automotive and light truck applications.

How do the prices of the EaA filters compare to the TS filters?

EaA filters cost slightly more than the TS Series. EaA filters are superior to the TS filters in performance, capacity, efficiency, air flow and filter life.

How many EaA filters are being offered?

AMSOIL will carry 45 EaA filters for the most popular automotive and light truck applications.
AMSOIL will continually study providing filters for additional applications.

Are the TS filter's being eliminated?

The TS filters will be available while supplies last. 

Will the launch of the EaA filters affect the honoring of TS filter warranties?

If a TS filter is deemed defective in accordance with the AMSOIL filter warranty, AMSOIL will replace the defective TS filter with a comparable EaA filter or will credit the customer's or Dealer's account for the purchase price of the TS filter.

What is AMSOIL's filter warranty?

AMSOIL warrants that its filtration products are fit for use according to AMSOIL's recommendations and warrants its products to be free of defective materials, design and workmanship.

If AMSOIL does not offer an EaA filter for my vehicle, what do I do?

AMSOIL will continue to offer air filtration products for auto and light truck applications through Hastings until further notice. AMSOIL will provide name brand filters for most applications that are not covered by AMSOIL labeled products.

How do I cross-reference my current filter or application?

The AMSOIL web site has the electronic auto/light truck cross reference guide. The guide, which allows users to search both by application and by filter, is also included as an insert in this edition of the Action News.

What about the auto light truck filters you do not cross to?

AMSOIL currently has a supplemental line of filters for auto/light truck and will be announcing a new partner to enhance this availability in December.
