GASTONIA, N.C. — Mann+Hummel will introduce a re-engineered line of WIX ProTec filters in first quarter 2022.
The new WIX ProTec oil filter features improved filtration media to allow for up to 10,000 miles of premium engine protection, the company said.
The WIX ProTec brand has been extended to now include air and cabin air filters, as well. Additionally, the entire line features newly designed packaging with the installer in mind, the company said.
The WIX ProTec oil filter provides up to 96% containment-trapping capabilities for passenger vehicles and light trucks. This elevated design allows for an extended period between oil changes, as the previous version provided engine protection for just 3,000-5,000 miles.
WIX ProTec air filters offer high-performing protection and are available for nearly every car and light truck on the road today, the company said. The filters help prevent foreign particles, such as soot, carbon and abrasives, from entering the fuel mix and damaging an engine.
WIX ProTec cabin air filters capture airborne contaminants, while also preventing leaves, dirt, bugs and other debris from negatively impacting the operation of the HVAC systems heater, air conditioner, and defroster, the company said.
WIX has facilities in seven different countries and manufactures more than 210 million filters annually.
