Hastings Axial Seal Air Filter Products

The Current…

Most axial seal style air filters for heavy-duty applications are made with sealing gaskets glued to steel end caps. As the filter is secured in the housing, the gasket compresses against flat sealing surfaces, forms a seal and prevents airborne contaminants from bypassing the filter.

The Change…

As an innovative company, Hastings Premium Filters now utilizes new technology in the design of a select group of axial seal style heavy-duty air filters within our product line. Some steel end caps with glued sealing gaskets will now be replaced by molded urethane end caps and sealing gaskets. With this technology, soft urethane used for the gasket is molded together with a more rigid urethane used for the end cap. Some filters will have urethane end caps on both ends while others may still require the use of a metal end cap at one end.

The Benefits…

     • Environmentally Friendly Materials
     • Eliminates Gasket Adhesion Concerns
     • Enhanced Gasket Sealing

When Will I See The New Design?

A running change will be made to the filters involved. Many products already utilize this technology.
