Oiled Glass Panel Filters
Oiled glass panel filters are a type of air filter made with a flat sheet of glass fibers that are layered and bonded together using a specially formulated oil adhesive. This adhesive helps to increase the filter’s efficiency by trapping smaller particles that would otherwise pass through dry glass panel filters.
Oiled glass panel filters are commonly used in high-performance applications such as racing and off-road vehicles, where superior filtration is required to protect the engine from damage caused by dirt, dust, and debris. They are also used in industrial applications, particularly those involving high levels of contaminants.
Oiled glass panel filters offer several benefits, including superior filtration compared to dry glass panel filters, particularly for smaller particles. They are commonly used in high-performance applications such as racing and off-road vehicles, where superior filtration is required to protect the engine from damage caused by dirt, dust, and debris.
Oiled glass panel filters require regular maintenance, including cleaning and re-oiling, to ensure optimal performance. The cleaning process typically involves gently washing the filter in a solution of mild detergent and warm water, then allowing it to air dry completely before re-oiling with a specially formulated filter oil.
While oiled glass panel filters offer superior filtration compared to dry glass panel filters, they also have a higher resistance to airflow, which can impact engine performance in some applications. Additionally, the oil adhesive used in these filters can sometimes cause issues with sensors or other components in certain vehicles. As with any air filter, it's important to choose the right type of filter for your specific application and follow the manufacturer's guidelines for installation and maintenance.
