Wix Filters’ WIX 42808 Filters
May 5, 2009

WIX Filters’ WIX 42808 increases filter capacity over the OE design by 25 percent and wet capacity/filter life by better than 14 percent, while equaling the efficiency of the OE filter.The new WIX 42808 is a member of the WIX radial lip seal air filter family. It features WIX’s polyurethane radial seals and metal end caps on the closed end. The design provides increased filter element strength, a stronger cross section of sealing material, greater media stabilization and capacity, and a handle that allows for easier handling by technicians.The WIX 42808 differs in form from the OE design by eliminating the centering cone in the end cap. The WIX end cap ID fits within the housing lid draw, while the lid holds the filter down on the top end cap surface. The molded polyurethane radial seals improve sealing capability and fit.
