The OX345/7D filter from MAHLE Clevite Inc. features a three-piece end cap constructed of plastic rather than foam.
The top plastic piece on the MAHLE Original filter is ultrasonically welded to the endplate, which creates a housing for the flexible elastomer O-ring.
The OX345/7D is easier to install and has a thicker and more efficient fleece media with the same filtration capacity as the competition, notes the company.
The filter will be on display at the MAHLE Clevite booth #3461 at the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) Oct. 30-Nov. 1 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nev.
