For more than 20 years the Vortox Company has manufactured stainless steel
air filter housings for the premium class 8 truck market. Over time
their air filter housing became a standard on many Peterbilt Truck models.
Until recently Vortox's housings strictly contained disposable air filters.
That has changed thanks to K&N's 38-2030R
heavy duty air filter. The 38-2030R
is washable and reusable and it comes with a 300,000 mile limited warranty.
Heavy Duty Commercial Grade Diesel Air Filter
The 38-2030R reverse flow filter is a unique style of filter designed for the rigorous task of protecting your large diesel motor. This heavy duty air filter has been reengineered from standard filter designs with a new non-oiled, washable and reusable hybrid filter media. This strong non-woven synthetic medium is tough enough to stand up to being cleaned with both pressure washers and compressed air, making servicing this filter fast and simple.
The 38-2030R is designed to
bring in air from the inside of the filter and collect the dirt into its large capacity non-oiled surface. Also, the molded urethane seal acts as its own gasket, providing an all in one filter and gasket design.
K&N product manager Dino Marutsos reported that the molded urethane seal is set on both ends, allowing the 38-2030R to be installed from either side. This feature along with the simple installation process makes the 38-2030R a perfect replacement for the following
