I don't know if this has been shown before.
"nothing gets by us" "nothing gets by you"

I found it sort of funny, given the cut adbv problem and closed louver problem. Among the problems. It is the plastic net they are trying to tear, not the media IMO. There are like three clips. laugh

Too funny, because with all the people in the whole company striving for new ideas and a focus on quality with all those meetings and comunication they still haven't figured out how to make filters that don't tear media, have closed louvers or cut ADBVs? Wow ... LOL

It appears the people are trying to make good filters. I wonder if they will close the loop with customer service?

Wow, there's a lot of fluff in that video! An American brand since 1923? They haven't been American owned in a while. They need to fix their manufacturing & customer service, just lying about it on a You Tube video isn't going to fix all their manufacturing issues!

I thought the 4 videos were mainly funny. Trying to tear the media. Why dwell on tearing? The Boss hasn't shown any tearing. The 625 psi burst strength is very high. Combined with open louvers and the good kind of adbv design, the Boss is OK. Another thing it shows is the people responsible for production don't have German accents. Can't make out what accent that is. laugh

Gee when I posted a link to a Denso I was chewed out for it, and here we have a whole exhibition of torn Purolators but none are the Boss? thankyou

Yeah, the Boss doesn't tear media, but some models I believe did have shark bite ADBVs. I have a feeling they threw in the clips of those guys trying to tear the Boss media for a reason. They know that lots of people know about "tearing media", and they probably figured their demo will ease some thoughts on tearing media on all Purolators.

I guess I missed the post where it showed the detriment for an ADBV with partial cuts?

Manufacturing is a messy process. Even Six Sigma quality control results in 3.4 failures per million opportunities. Why do people always develop amnesia about this fact? Now that I think about it, maybe this is why oil companies came up with 3k OCIs... because minimal additional engine wear is likely to result from a failed filter! If youíre changing filters every oil change, youíre extremely unlikely to get two bad filters in a row?

Itís all statistics. Part of statistics is knowing what is relevant and what isnít. Especially when there is a dearth of dammning evidence but plenty of fanfare.

Oh and I havenít bought or used a Purolator for around 5 years. Not because of posts here, but mainly due to cost.

Not a net advantage (vs. changing filters less often), because by sampling more filters, you're more more likely to get a defective one or ones.

CR, that would only be true if you had bought a large amount from the same lot and were only pulling from that sample set. Since millions upon millions of filters have been made in the time it took for your OCI, it could be assumed your chance for a bad filter is nearly always identical.
