Fram Group IP LLC has added a silicone anti-drainback valve (ADBV) to its Extra Guard Spin-on Oil Filters.
The company says the silicone ADBV remains flexible three times longer than nitrile, offering added protection for safe engine start-ups. Additionally, the new and improved filter offers even stronger protection against dry starts, which can damage the engine.
“This enhanced technology delivers a higher quality, value-added filter,” says Thomas Amundson, product manager. “The Extra Guard Oil Filter offers the perfect balance of dirt-trapping efficiency and dirt-holding capacity. No matter what you drive or what motor oil you use, you’ll get excellent engine protection and performance using the Extra Guard Oil Filter.”
Extra Guard Oil Filters’ special blend of fibers and resin creates a proprietary filter media that captures 95% of the dirt particles greater than 20 microns that can cause harmful engine wear, according to the company.
Fram’s enhanced Extra Guard Oil Filter can be located at the new Fram.com website.
