Light Duty and Application Catalogs Covers More Than 5,000 WIX Filters Products

WIX Filters has issued its 2012 Master Catalogs, which cover more than 5,000 WIX Filters products with dimensions, thread sizes, gasket information and application summary. The three new catalogs are: 2012 Passenger Car/Light Truck Application Catalog; HD Trucks, Buses & Off-Road Vehicles Application Catalog; and Interchange-Product Numeric Catalog.

“Our catalogs provide WIX customers with a universal resource for dependable product information,” said Dan Moser, publications manager for WIX Filters. “Since our first catalog in the 1940s, our goal has remained the same: To provide comprehensive information on products in the automotive aftermarket industry and assist customers in easily locating the correct part for every job.”

The 448-page 2012 Passenger Car/Light Truck Application Catalog covers all passenger cars and light models from 1991 through 2012 for oil, air, cabin air, fuel and transmission filters. The catalogs also feature a cabin air locator guide to assist technicians in finding these sometimes hard to locate filters. The 2012 catalog also includes comprehensive listings for motorcycles and ATVs.

The 2012 HD Trucks, Buses & Off-Road Vehicles Application Catalog is 1,300 pages and includes more than 75,000 vehicle applications covering medium- and heavy-duty trucks and buses, marine, construction and materials handling equipment. For 2012, WIX added its new industrial hydraulic line to HD applications that use these products to further increase coverage in the hydraulic world, making the catalog the most comprehensive HD catalog WIX has produced.

Across 700 pages, the Interchange-Product Numeric Catalog covers new products, interchanges and a complete listing of all 5,000 WIX Filters products with dimensions, thread sizes, gasket information and an application summary. The catalog also includes a complete WIX interchange section with more than 185,000 interchanges. Customers can search part types by dimensions or thread size to find various part types by category.

WIX also includes technical bulletins about the specialty products produced, including fuel dispensing filters, remote mount bases, cooling system products and chemicals, conversion kits, oil analysis and AquaChek products to remove moisture from air compressor lines. The catalog also includes illustrations/drawings of different styles of air and fuel filters to make identification easy.

“Our award-winning catalogs are a reflection of our expanded products and mark nearly three generations of accurate cataloging,” said Mike Harvey, brand manager for WIX Filters. “Providing reliable product information is a hallmark at WIX, which adds new part numbers nearly every month.”

The three 2012 WIX Filters’ Catalogs feature creative cover designs depicting the brand’s engineering heritage. To receive copies, please contact a WIX distributor or visit www.wixconnect.com.
