FILTERS

What is media?

By Li Chenyu / hcfire360 November

Media is a mixture of various fibres bonded together.

The 'media' paper filters out the contaminants passing through the oil, air or fuel filter. Quality and quantity of media are very important. Some media may look similar but can perform differently. The function of filter media is to remove the greatest amount of contaminants while offering the least resistance to flow.
Q4.Does more pleated media filter paper mean better filtration?
Generally a filter with more media has the ability to trap more contaminants than one with less. Few pleats means little media and low capacity. Irrespective, the media must contain the appropriate resins and compounds.
