Superior Engine Protection and Enhanced Performance
Premium Guard air filters are tested to the highest standard. Our testing takes into account three factors that define the performance of the air filter and thus the engine’s performance. The three factors are:
1. Efficiency is measured in percentage and is the amount of dirt/contaminants the filter blocks from entering the engine. It also takes into account initial efficiency when the filter is clean, as well as the average throughout the life of the filter. Efficiency represents the percentage of dust/contaminants that was trapped by the filter.
2. Restriction to airflow is the measure of air flow through the filter into the engine. It is measuring the differential pressure between the clean and dirty side. The lower the drop, the lower the flow of air, which could result in the filter being less restrictive.
3. Dust holding capacity measures the overall quantity (weight) of the containments captured throughout the life of the filter.
These three factors are height interdependent and impact one another. Increasing the flow could reduce the efficiency and thus the overall dust-holding capacity. Premium Guard air filters are designed to maximize the flow while ensuring high efficiency, and high capacity. Resulting to cleaner and more air flowing into the engine for a longer life.
When and how often should the Air Filter be replaced:
Commonly, car manufacturers recommend changing the air filter for every 10,000-12,000 miles spent or once a year, whichever comes first. However, driving conditions, dusty roads, and humid climates may require more frequent replacement. Congested roads and heavy traffic areas that involve frequent deceleration and acceleration could impact the life of the air filter.
Here are few common indicators that it may be time to replace the air filter:
Check if engine light comes on: Many cars are equipped with an airflow sensor that may set off the check engine light.
Visual inspection: Premium Guard air filters are mostly made with white media to make a clear distinction between clean and dirty filters. Inspect the inner layers of the filter paper as it might have dust and debris that is not visible on the surface.
Reduced fuel economy: Your engine compensates for lower amounts of oxygen by consuming more fuel to produce sufficient power. Thus, if you notice that fuel economy is going down
Misfiring engine: Restricted air supply results in unburnt fuel exiting the engine in the form of soot residue. The soot accumulates on the spark plug which can cause the engine to misfire.
Reduced horsepower: If your car does not respond adequately or if you notice jerking movements when you press the accelerator, this could indicate that your engine is not receiving all the air it needs to perform. Replacing your air filter can improve acceleration or horsepower.
Black sooty smoke or flames exiting the exhaust: An inadequate air supply can result in some of the fuel not burning completely in the combustion cycle. This unburnt fuel then exits the car through the exhaust pipe.
Factors that Impact Air Filter & Engine Performance
Efficiency is measured in percentage and represents the volume of dirt/contaminants an air filter prevents from entering an engine. Our engine air filters are designed to trap up to 98 percent* over the life of a filter.
*Tested per ISO-5011
Dust-holding capacity measures the overall quantity (weight) of airborne contaminants captured throughout the life of the auto air filter. Our air filters are engineered to provide high dust-holding capacity for exceptional longevity and performance.
Restriction of airflow measures air flow through the car filter into the engine and assesses the differential pressure between the clean and dirty side. Our automotive air filters are designed to maximize flow of clean air for enhanced power and performance.
Most car manufacturers recommend changing the air filter every 10,000-12,000 miles or once a year, whichever comes first.
*Refer to the car manufacturer’s owner’s manual
Many cars are equipped with an airflow sensor that sets off the check engine light.
Premium Guard automotive air filters are white to display dirt.
Check the outside and inner layers of the filter paper for dust and debris.
When engines get less oxygen, they consume more fuel.
If you notice fuel economy going down, you may need to replace the air filter.
Restricted air supply can result in unburnt fuel exiting the engine as soot residue.
Soot accumulates on the spark plugs and may cause the engine to misfire.
Is your car not responding well or jerking when you step on the accelerator?
Replacing the engine air filter can improve acceleration or horsepower.
Poor air supply can result in fuel that doesn’t burn completely during the combustion cycle.
Unburnt fuel exits through the exhaust pipe and may result in smoke or flames.
