In 1974, the first Champion-brand spin-on filter was introduced. Today, Champion Aerospace distributes Champion-brand spin-on oil filters and element filters that incorporate a semi-depth filter media.
The filters combine the advantages of both surface and depth-type filtratration: high filtering efficiency, controlled porosity for uniform flow, water resistance, and the resistance to impulse and flow fatigue.
Champion-brand oil filters keep dirt and harmful particles from damaging your engine. Plus, no other filters on the market have Champions unique, resin-impregnated, full-pleat design 8.2 feet of layered protection for your engine.
Champion Aerospaces full-pleat, resin-impregnated micronic filter media traps all harmful particles, including metallic chips which result from abnormal engine wear. Because the oil flows through many layers of locked-in fibers, there is no migration of fiber material to clog engine oil passages or affect bearing surfaces.
According to industry-approved tests, the Champion oil filter traps and holds more dirt and harmful particles during its normal operating time than any other similar filter.
Champion Aerospace spin-on oil filters are packaged in individual boxes, with part numbers displayed prominently. All are equipped with an attached installation gasket. Those with male threaded studs have thread protectors to avoid damage.
All sizes of spin-on filters are packed 12 per case of a single part number, in heavy, reshippable corrugated-board cartons.
Champion oil filters elements are individually boxed, each with a plastic bag containing installation gaskets and instructions. This provides ample protection for these elements in storage and assures availability of necessary items for correct installation.
All sizes of replacement elements are packed 12 per case of a single part number in heavy, reshippable corrugated-board cartons.
