Targeted Filtration Technology (TFT)


Due to the importance placed on engine efficiency, modern automotive engines are designed with extremely close tolerances, increasing the friction load, and thus; increasing the sensitivity of the engine to micron-sized abrasive particles. The result? Increased importance on the durability and reliability of the oil filtration system to ensure a long, stable engine life. The filter plays a non-visible role in the engine, and therefore the consumer can be misled on the importance of filter quality. Automotive filters play a crucial role in the longevity and reliable operation of engines, and hence, manufacturing technologies, equipment and quality control are of significant importance.

Since the invention and implementation of automotive filters at the beginning of the 20th century, the design has not seen significant change. Major technology advances over the past 100+ years have resulted in changes to functionality of the applied materials, and the assembling technologies of specific filter components.

TF-Technology (Targeted Filtration Technology) is Totachi’s filter technology that conforms to the specifications and requirements of OEMs, resulting in automotive filters that meet or even exceed the quality of original OEM parts.

One of the key factors of TF-Technology is the selection of a specific type; and structure, of filtering paper, allowing Totachi to regulate the porous structure of the filter element to obtain the required physical and mechanical properties of the filtration material.

Totachi’s TF-Technology impregnates the filtration medium with additional synthetic fibers, which aids to improve the quality of filtration, and guarantees the set performance characteristics that are adapted for each vehicle type.

As a result, Totachi filters possess high key parameters:

  • Fineness of filtration;
  • Completeness of filtration;
  • Increased dust capacity;
  • Low resistance to flow;
  • Long life, which supersedes OEM requirements to service intervals.

The use of Totachi filters can extend the service interval of your vehicle, improve engine oil effectiveness, and provide enhanced protection of the engine against harmful contamination in the air and fuel lines.

Given that the advancements in filter technology are not superficial, it is extremely difficult to differentiate a quality filter from a mediocre filter by appearance alone. Hence, when selecting a filter, it is critical to consider manufacturing technologies and brand reputation. Totachi automotive filters regularly undergo certification in independent automotive research institutes, and exceed OEM specifications and requirements. Totachi automotive filters are available through our authorized distributor networks.
