S&B Filters: Are dry filters cleanable?

The S&B dry disposable filters are technically not cleanable. However, you can extend the life of the S&B dry filter by blowing it out with compressed air. To prolong the life of a dry filter we recommend using a filter wrap or pre-filter. This will help keep bugs, leaves and other large debris from contaminating the filter media. It will also make it easier to blow out and extend the life of your filter. 

Best way to blow out the filter
Using compressed air and making sure not to get too close as to damage the filter. Stay about 6" inches away continuously moving while blowing compressed air from the outside. This can be done with the filter still in the vehicle. For a more thorough cleaning; blow it out from the inside out. Be careful not to concentrate the compressed air in one location in the media.
