New industrial filtration program serves $36 billion market

“WIX has delivered filtration engineering and design excellence to the vehicle market for more than 70 years,” said Jeff Blocher, brand manager for WIX Filters. “This new product line brings our filtration expertise and large distribution network to the multi-billion dollar global industrial filtration market.”

The WIX Filters industrial filter line is cataloged by a smart part number that is common in the industry. Each part number describes the type of filter, its construction family, micron rating, media type and special characteristics.
