Cat filters are quite simply far better than other filters and eliminate any risk taken by using other filter brands. Cat filters are constructed and made to satisfy the most stringent filter requirements in the industry — Caterpillar’s specifications.
Cat filters have properties that others do not have. Acryl strings keep the filter parts separated. The spiral support bands reinforce the medium and provide high stability. The nylon centre pipe and aluminium bottom plate prevent metallic pollution. The cast end cover eliminates leaks.
Another sign of quality is the powerful filter housing that protects any Cat filter. The one-piece construction resists high pressure loads, as during cold starts, and leaks hardly ever occur.
To ensure that Cat engines are as well protect the day before the oil change as the day after.
