Pleating Process

Arch-shaped pleats with skip-a-pleat or PowerTrap® embossing evenly distribute airflow over the entire surface area of the filter, while preventing pleat collapse that restricts airflow. This design feature is important because it improves filtration at high airflow rates and also improves the filter’s efficiency and dirt-holding capacity.

Pleat Stabilisation Beads

WIX uses hot melt or plastisol stabilization beads at optimal spacing on large heavy duty air filters to keep the media from fluttering or pleats collapsing, which diminish the capabilities of the air filter.

Prescription Media

WIX heavy duty air filters use filter media that is 99.9% efficient and chosen specifically for each application to hold the maximum amount of dirt and provide the maximum length of service.
