Indispensable Protection For The Engine

Automotive experts agree that engine dirt is the number one cause of engine wear and failure. Dirt particles that originate from the operation of the engine are extremely abrasive. They consist of airborne dust, soot and other particulates drawn in through the air intake, microscopic metallic particles generated inside the engine through friction, as well as contaminants due to oil degradation. These particles are carried by the oil through clearances between the various moving parts of the engine and they cause wear by grinding surfaces, altering clearances and generating more abrasive fragments. As this cycle continues, precision components become more and more fatigued until they fail altogether. Therefore, constant and uninterrupted lubrication in conjunction with filtration is of utmost importance for the proper operation of all internal combustion engines. Good filtration is the key to preventing failure and costly repairs caused by engine dirt. Oil filters help by purifying the circulating oil from dirt thus maintaining a cleaner engine, and this in turn helps to preserve engine life and performance.


ALCO’s line of oil filters includes more than 600 different filter types with many new filters added every year. Our comprehensive range includes the Spin-On, Ecological metal-free element and Cartridge filter categories. Spin-On oil filters is a combination of a filter element and a metallic housing whereas the following can be integrated: Relied Valve: It is situated on the bottom end cap of the filter element inside the metallic housing and ensures that it releases the overpressure that could be created in the housing resulting from cold starts (high oil viscosity due to low temperatures). One other reason for the relief valve to open is the contamination of the filter media from dirt due to late service intervals. Antidrain Valve / Rubber Diaphragment: Due to the position of the filter on the engine block the anti-drain valve ensures that the filter remains full with oil ensuring that is going to be readily available once the engine re-starts operating. Oil filter elements are separated into metallic and non-metallic elements: Metallic elements are mainly used for older type vehicles where the housing is not replaced thus the environmental impact is low as only the element is changed. Ecological elements are mainly used to newer developed vehicles where the filter construction is free of any metallic components ALCO catalogue includes vehicle applications, product guide and cross-references which can be found in the online catalogue at Product Catalogue Download or in the annual printed catalogues and CD-Rom catalogues.


ALCO oil filters are manufactured exclusively from selected raw materials such as durable paper media, rustproof metal and long-lasting plastic and rubber sealants, which pass through strict quality control inspections before the manufacturing process. Our testing engineers carefully select these materials through rigorous tests, exhaustive market research and customer feedback to assure the quality of the finished product. The filtering capability of the paper is without doubt the single most important feature of any oil filter. ALCO utilizes high spec filter media with sub-micron porosity that has excellent capturing characteristics, such as the ability to filter out very fine dirt particles from the oil stream. ALCO oil filters are specifically designed to target-out the primary engine wear particles, which range from 5 to 25 microns with efficiencies of up to 99%. The newest technological implication involves the use of long-life filter media with special resin binding treatments that prolong the life of the filter. This development is intended for vehicles with extended oil change intervals due to the introduction of fully-synthetic lubricants.


ALCO employs both traditional and advanced methods for the manufacture of oil filters. All associated manufacturing steps, from the introduction of raw materials to the completion of the filters are undertaken in-house which bestows full control over the finished product and assures its quality. ALCO combines a number of factors to ensure the quality of its oil filters during production. From the state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, to the technical expertise and experienced staff, we take pride in knowing that we have full competence to manufacture superior quality oil filters. The process begins by inspecting all raw materials to ensure they conform to our standards. Then the materials are forwarded to the corresponding flexible manufacturing cells for specific processes such as canister drawing, forming of internal components, paper pleating and curing, canister treatment, powder painting and curing, and ultimately assembling. Rigorous visual and laboratory testing inspections are performed at every stage of the manufacturing process according to our quality procedures to ensure our filters are free of any defect before they leave our facility. At the same time, we strive to perform all our activities by abiding to established health, safety and environmental regulations as our commitment to the people we employ and our respect for the environment.
