Purolator's new Synthetic Oil Filter Captures 99 percent of contaminants; provides 10,000-mile vehicle protection

Purolator Synthetic utilizes 100 percent synthetic media with pleat support technology containing wire backing that is engineered for today's high-tech engines. The result is a filter that has substantially more 'capacity' than conventional oil filters.

Broadview, Ill.--Now, there is an oil filter made specifically for vehicle owners using synthetic motor oils in their cars.

 

Purolator is introducing Purolator Synthetic, a new oil filter based on cutting edge technology. Purolator Synthetic features 100 percent synthetic media that is custom-engineered to allow motorists to realize maximum benefits from synthetic motor oils.

 

"The key benefit of synthetic oils is chemistry that allows them to perform for extended periods of time," said Chuck Kerrigan, director of Marketing, for Purolator. "In order to take advantage of the extended life offered by synthetic oils, motorists need an oil filter that can capture and hold the tiny particulates that can accumulate over time. Now Purolator has introduced the Purolator Synthetic, a new filter that incorporates fully synthetic media combined with a specially designed media support system and other component technological innovations for longevity that allows motorists to enjoy the full benefits of longer-life synthetic oils," Kerrigan said.

 

Specifically, Purolator Synthetic utilizes 100 percent synthetic media with pleat support technology containing wire backing that is engineered for today's high-tech engines. The result is a filter that has substantially more 'capacity' than conventional oil filters. This allows the filter to capture and safely hold more contaminants generated over the extended life of synthetic oils without getting clogged, Kerrigan said.

 

At the same time, Purolator Synthetic features 99 percent 'efficiency' which means that it can capture and safely hold 99 percent of particulates 25 microns in size or larger. A micron is a millionth of a meter.

 

"It is this extraordinary combination of capacity and efficiency, along with design technology, that maintains the integrity of the media for extended periods of time," Kerrigan said. "This makes Purolator Synthetic a 10,000-mile filter available for those motorists that are using synthetic motor oils in their vehicles," he said.
