Good Morning BITOGERS smile

Had few of these filters laying around so figured why not chop one open. Doesn’t look bad, Lil’ sloppy pleat spacing I see but serviceable for 4-5k OCI.

Enjoy the photos.

Adam … that little composite piece is part of a base end bypass or what …?

It’s nitrile rubber and I believe a “combo/ADBV”

Interesting filter, especially that composite resin part. The media looks thin with wide pleat spacing.

Looks like a decent jobber filter.

Thanks for sharing.

Yeah, I have two old WIX made Super Tech 4386 filters that use combo valve. Maybe I’ll cut one later smile
