K&N's series of heavy duty oil filters are designed with
strength and high flow filtration engineered into the canisters. This series
was specially created for high compression levels and for the tighter tolerances of turbo diesel engines. K&N synthetic micro-glass media provides lower restriction and incredible engine protection. This media also has very good cold flow characteristics while providing an excellent balance of capacity and efficiency.
These K&N heavy duty canister oil filters have a dichromate plated backing plate for corrosion protection and a Hydrogenated Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (HNBR) base gasket that makes a durable seal when installed. HNBR has characteristics of high strength and an ability to withstand high heat. Several of these oil filters also have a silicone anti-drain back valve.
The addition of a thick canister with high burst strength and protection against pulsation fatigue, leads to one serious heavy duty oil filter. K&N heavy duty oil filters are also equipped with a one inch nut welded onto the end of the canister, making removal easier than most standard heavy duty oil filters.
K&N HP-8000, HP-8001, HP-8002, HP-8003, HP-8006, HP-8017, HP-8021 and HP-8025 are all examples of K&N's expanding heavy duty canister oil filter line. Oil filter part numbers HP-8029, HP-8030, HP-8031, HP-8032, and HP-8033 are designed with an anti-drain back valve and a bypass valve.
