Wix Filters’ Polyurethane Inner Safety Air Filters
May 5, 2009

Wix Filters has five new part numbers of polyurethane inner safety air filters for tractor, loader and excavation equipment-type applications. Part numbers 46490, 42985, 46672, 46663, and 42807 are designed for a variety of models for manufacturers including Bobcat, Case, Caterpillar, John Deere, Komatsu, and Kubota. The new WIX polyurethane inner safety air filters feature heat seamed media, eliminating the metal clip from previous product generations. In addition, the tall seal area on the new filters creates a superior fit with the original equipment housing. The primary purpose of an inner air filter is to keep dirt and other contaminants from entering the air intake system of the engine while the outer air filter is being serviced; by creating tighter seals both in the filter itself and between the filter and the housing we have increased the protection provided by this filter.
