It's a well-known fact that dirty oil can cause serious damage to the engine. This oil filter is specially designed and manufactured to prevent it and minimize the possibility of costly downtime and repairs by removing damaging contaminants from the oil. Some particles adhere to the filter media as the oil flows through the filter. These particles attach themselves to the media surface without plugging the media pores, while others are trapped in the filter media by the pressure of the oil as it flows through the filter. But where some oil filters sacrifice filtration efficiency for dirt holding capacity, and vice-versa, Hastings filters excel in both areas, so you get optimal oil filtration during extended oil change intervals.
The nitrile gasket that withstands high temperatures and provides a consistent seal prevents leaks, while the anti-drain back valve keeps oil in the filter to guard against damage from dry starts, where applicable. The steel coil spring maintains its shape for a positive load pressure on the adapter seal and element to prevent unfiltered oil from reaching the engine. You will also appreciate the metal end caps that increase stability and structural strength of the filter maximizing its service life. To ensure this oil filter meets OE specifications, the manufacturer tested it according to SAE HS806 test procedures that are the industry standard for lube filtration.
