Many people don’t realise the inherent differences between different types of oil filters. When someone needs a new oil filter, it’s not uncommon for that person to assume that any filter will do. After all, just about every oil filter or oil filter kit looks exactly the same—at least on the outside.
What Makes Some Oil Filters Better Than Others?
The truth of the matter, though, is that quality does matter. While different oil filters might look more or less identical on the outside, their interior qualities are where most of the differences lie. Specifically, different filters use different types of filtration media to keep the oil in your vehicle or equipment clean.
The filtration media is the key component to any oil filter. The fibres used in this media will essentially determine how well the oil filter performs. Cheaper filters will use lower quality fibres in their filtration media. While these filters might look the same as what you would find in a more expensive oil filter kit, you will notice their cheapness in terms of performance. Less efficient than more expensive higher quality filters, these cheap contraptions won’t collect as many foreign particles. As a result, those particles will be allowed to float around in your motor oil.
As you might expect, using cheaper oil filters is something that will have several unwanted consequences in the long run. First off, when you use cheap oil filter kits, they don’t do as much work to keep your oil clean. Thus, you will need to change the oil in your car, truck or equipment on a more frequent basis. Secondly, with more foreign particles in your oil, you run the risk of damaging your oil pump and your engine. Damage may not occur straight away, but over a period of time it will.
A higher quality oil filter won’t let either of these things happen. Instead, it will trap 99% of foreign particles (if not more), keeping your oil cleaner for longer. As a result, you will be able to drive further between oil changes, or use your equipment for longer without having to worry about draining and changing out the oil. In addition, the cleaner oil will be easier on the internal components of your machine—a good thing no matter who you are.
