IDUSA Launches New Premium Guard Extended Life Oil Filter

Line features advanced synthetic media for engine protection up to 10,000 miles, company says.


NEW YORK, N.Y. – International Distributors USA Inc. (IDUSA), a global supply network of automotive replacement parts, has introduced a new line of Premium Guard Extended Life Oil Filters, created to meet the growing need for filters that are able to meet the performance requirements of vehicle manufacturers’ extended oil change intervals.
The new Premium Guard line is designed to deliver engine protection up to 10,000 miles when used with synthetic oil, according to IDUSA. It is engineered with a high capacity for trapping and holding dirt. Based on a test conducted by South West Research Institute (SWRI), the line offers 98 percent Multi-Pass Particle Removal Efficiency, which offers more than 98 percent weighted average efficiency through the life of the filter, the company states.  

According to Anan Bishara, IDUSA CEO, “More carmakers are calling for extended oil change intervals in an increasing number of models. These now include key manufacturers such as Audi, BMW, Chrysler, GM, Jeep, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota and VW. This trend is growing quickly and will fundamentally transform the oil-change segment of industry.”

The new Premium Guard Extended Life line includes 11 spin-on oil filters and 25 cartridge oil filters. The new product line is made with premium components to improve both performance and reliability, the company says. According to IDUSA, the spin-on filters include a silicon gasket and anti-drain valve that can handle extreme temperatures from -40 ºF to +400 ºF, a silicon anti-drain valve that offers longevity and higher retention power to protect the engine during start-up, a 0.5 millimeter steel can housing to withstand high pressures, and a built-in relief valve that bypasses the filter media in the event of blockage to prevent oil starvation.
