MSOIL INC. ANNOUNCES THE INTRODUCTION of a new premium, high efficiency
air filter utilizing nanofiber technology with a four year/100,000 mile service life
guarantee and superior air flow. Positioning itself to be a world class leader in
filtration, the AMSOIL Ea Filter is incomparable in both design and performance.
In lab testing Ea media with nanofibers removed 5 times more dust than
the average cellulose filter and 50 times more dust than the average wet
gauze media. Ea media also has 3 times the airflow of cellulose filters
and is equal to wet gauze filters at the very low 0.5 inches of restriction.
The proprietary Ea media held 15 times more dust than the average wet gauze
type filter. In short, AMSOIL Ea Filters offer superior performance
in the three critical performance benchmarks of efficiency, flow and capacity.
Nanofiber technology has been used exclusively in heavy duty applications, including
the US ARMY Abrams M1 tank. AMSOIL has brought this technology to the auto/light truck
market. AMSOIL Ea Air Filters provide the absolute best filtration and with an unmatched
4-year/100,000-mile guarantee, AMSOIL Ea Air Filters save money.
Fast Fact: A nanofiber is
less than one micron in diameter. A human hair is 80 microns.
Nanofiber Filter Media
- Traps sub-micron size particles on the nanofiber surface
- Prevents particles from lodging in the filter media depth

What are the Benefits?
Allows More Air Flow
Proper air flow is vital to maximize performance and engine life. Air is required to
release the energy from the fuel being used. It takes 1,200 cubic feet of air to combust
one gallon of gasoline. Inadequate air flow can cause serious loss of power, poor
performance and excessive fuel consumption. Tests show that AMSOIL Ea Air Filters have
more than three times the airflow of filters that use cellulose media alone.
Holds More Dirt
A filterís ability to contain trapped contaminants determines how well an engine will
run and how long the filter will remain effective. If the capacity is too low, the
filter will have to be replaced constantly. When the filter is full, air cannot pass
through at the rate necessary for proper engine performance.
AMSOIL Ea Air Filters hold up to five times more contaminants than cellulose air filters.
Since the nanofibers in the media are so small there are more pores per square inch,
allowing for higher dirt-holding capacity and lower pressure drop when compared to
cellulose filter media alone. Thinner media fibers produce more uniform pore size
distribution, improving the filterís overall quality and ability to capture and retain
particles. Testing shows that Ea Air Filters hold 15 times more contaminants than a
wet gauze type filter. The capacity is so great, in fact, that the new AMSOIL Ea Air
Filters remain effective for a full 25,000 miles or one year before cleaning. This
coincides with the AMSOIL 25,000-mile/one-year motor oil drain interval, adding even
more convenience for motorists by consolidating routine maintenance.
EaA filters should be cleaned every year or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Carefully remove filter from the housing. Clean the housing with a shop towel being
careful not to knock contaminants into the air inlet.
Cleaning can be done by two methods:
Vacuum Cleaning: Place the filter on a flat surface and carefully vacuum the filter
media on the dirty side where the incoming airflow enters the filter. Be careful not
to rub the filter pleats with the vacuum cleaner attachment too aggressively as this
may damage the filter. Using a vacuum with too much suction may damage the filter.
Shop Air Cleaning: Hold the filter with one hand and carefully blow the filter media
at a 45-degree angle on the clean side of the filter using low-pressure (15 to 20 psi)
shop air. Be careful not to rub the filter pleats with the air nozzle as this may damage
the filter. Using too high of air pressure will damage the filter media.
Reinstall the filter into the air filter housing and secure.
