Powertrain & Fluid

Our advanced filter media and venting materials can help reduce emissions and make your product easier to assemble.

Improve your system functionality with advanced filter media and vents

Porex manufactures a wide variety of filter and venting media for numerous drive system and other automotive applications.  Our advanced filter media and venting materials can help reduce emissions and make your product easier to assemble.

Our advanced materials include:

  • Advanced media - can efficiently separate oil mist from air streams or water from fuel/oil streams in a single component, self-supporting form. 
  • High performance POREX Virtek™ PTFE - can be directly welded onto plastic enclosures and reservoirs providing a tough permanent vent.
  • Standard or customized general filter media - can be made into 2D or 3D forms that can replace multiple components.

Oil & Fuel Water Separation Media

Greater efficiency high performance separation media

Our oil separation media feature a unique bonded fiber technology that can perform the function of multiple layers of traditional filter media, efficiently separating oil mist from the air stream. Our bonded fiber can also separate water from diesel and other fuels. With its gradient density structure, our reliable, efficient media can replace several layers of traditional media used in water separation.

Specifically designed to reduce vehicle emissions and to improve performance, our powertrain filters come in two different types of solutions that can be provided in both custom and standard options:

  • Our unique bonded fiber structure can efficiently separate over 95% of oil mist from oil reservoir fumes.
  • Efficiently removes water from fuel streams that can cause issues with injectors and engines
  • Increase efficiency, as POREX® media can perform the function of multiple layers of traditional separation filter media

Fluid Reservoir Vents & Filters

Protect automotive fluid reservoirs

For automotive fluid reservoirs, manufacturers trust POREX hydrophobic and oleophobic PTFE vents and fiber media filters.

Compared to competitive products, our vents:

  • Feature robust POREX Virtek™ PTFE – Pure PTFE media is extremely hydrophobic. It features high temperature resistance and can be directly welded to caps or enclosures.
  • Can be customized – Self-supporting filter media can be customized into many shapes.
