Royal Purple will introduce its new high-tech oil filters at the 2009 SEMA Show. Commercial fleets use advanced micro-glass oil filters to extend the life of heavy-duty trucks and equipment. The high-tech oil filters use special synthetic glass microfibers about 10 times smaller than conventional cellulose filter fibers to provide superior filtration. High-performance lubricant manufacturer Royal Purple is now bringing this technology to the consumer market.
Royal Purple’s new high-performance oil filters combine advanced micro-glass technology and high capacity with optimized flow characteristics for maximum performance and filter life. Each Filter features:

  • 100% synthetic micro-glass media for superior particle removal with 99% filtration efficiency    
  • A high-performance silicone anti-drain back valve that prevents dry starts even in extreme conditions
  • A heavy gauge steel back-plate for maximum burst strength
  • An extra heavy-duty nitrile-rubber base gasket with special lubricity compounds to reduce torque during installation and ensure a leak-free seal 
  • Ultra-strength filter housing that provides extra protection against puncture from road debris 

Royal Purple oil filters allow change intervals to be extended up to 12,000 miles. Vehicles still under warranty should follow the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended filter change intervals. 

While Royal Purple filters are fully compatible with all synthetic and conventional oils, Royal Purple recommends using its high-performance motor oil, which also has a 12,000-mile life. Royal Purple high performance filters are currently available exclusively at Pep Boys. The filters will be available at other auto parts retailers this November, 2009. For more information, visit
