Green Filters

High Performance & Eco-Friendly Air Filters

Green Filters started in the business by crafting custom filters for the motorsports industry, with clients who had very high demands. A racing filter has flow air like an open storm door, even when it has collected dirt from the racetrack for an entire 24 hour endurance race, or a thousand miles of Baja. Expanding the product line into street vehicles gave the company a lot of happy customers who have changed over to Green Filters from their stock unit.

The basis of Green Filters technology is an oiled, woven cotton element. Why low-tech cotton in a high-tech racing car? Wouldn't the cotton gauze used in other aftermarket filters perform better and have less restriction than cotton cloth? Nope. Woven cotton is thinner, holds oil better, and is stronger. Since it's thinner, it has superior air flow without sacrificing filtration. Woven cotton distributes oil more evenly, and the medium is much stronger. Unlike gauze, you can't wear a hole in woven cotton by rubbing it, and there is no way small bits of cotton can rip off since it's interlocked with another piece.

This superior cotton fabric sandwich is armored with steel mesh, not aluminum, for better strength and durability. A casual knock from careless handling during cleaning won't dent the mesh like it would aluminum. The weight penalty is minor, but the lifespan of the filter element should now be longer than the lifespan of the car or truck it's installed in. The use of steel also permits the pleats to be deeper for maximum surface area, which reduces flow restriction and lengthens the interval between cleanings.

Consider something as simple as the rubber molding that surrounds the mesh. Other filter manufacturers use a pressure injection-molding process, similar to the process used to mold the rubber onto OEM-style paper filters. This is faster, but allows a lot of rubber to creep onto the filter medium instead of staying around the perimeter like it's supposed to. This can block as much as 25% of the airflow in some applications. Green Filters doesn't inject all the rubber at one fell swoop, but uses a slower four-step process that keeps the rubber where it belongs.
