Lubrication Specialties, Inc. (LSI) has developed two new filter media specifically designed to filter engine oil more than 10x finer than an original OEM filter-down to just 2 microns. The more common of these two designs is known as the Cellulose media. This design is woven extremely tight in order to remove 96% of all contaminants including water and anti-freeze.
The second, and most recent design, is the Synthetic media. The Synthetic style allows for a more even flow of oil throughout the canister, and lasts 2-3 times longer than the Cellulose media. Each of the two styles are compared side-by-side in the illustration below. Find out which best suits your engine!
