More and more motorists are using synthetic or semi-synthetic oils for the extended service life they offer. The new Bosch Long Life Oil Filter has been engineered to provide motorists with the highest level of protection over the entire service life of the oil they choose.

Bosch’s Long Life Oil Filter is 99.5 percent ‘efficient’ in capturing microscopic pollutants 40 microns or larger, based on ISO 4548-12. One micron is one-millionth of a meter.  Furthermore, these new filters have the ‘capacity’ to trap 22 grams of dirt – the equivalent of about 52 standard-size paper clips.  ‘Efficiency’ and ‘capacity’ are the two industry-accepted criteria for assessing the quality of oil filters.

The new Bosch Long Life Oil Filter features specially-engineered fully synthetic filtration media with enhanced construction and configuration,” said Kerrigan. “This media provides a more complex matrix that particles must navigate so more small particles are captured in the process,” he said.

Furthermore, Bosch’s Long Life Oil Filter media contains wire backing that is engineered for today’s high-tech engines. The result is a filter that can capture and safely hold more contaminants generated over the extended life of synthetic and semi-synthetic oils without getting clogged, Kerrigan said.

“Bosch Long Life Oil Filter represents yet another step forward in Bosch’s 100-plus year history of enhancing the premium segment of the aftermarket through innovative automotive technology that benefits both the motorist and the industry that serves them,” Kerrigan said.

Bosch Long Life Oil Filters include 33 part numbers that offer 93 percent coverage for all vehicles in operation (VIO) in the United States. It is only available at participating retailers.
