i think the wire mesh thing was always a bit of a gimmick. fibreglass media with a steel inner tube won't collapse and break. The bypass will open long before a big enough pressure differential can build up to tear the media.

One would be better served by posting about topics you know about rather than things you don’t.

Fiberglass media needs a backing, the steel inner tube however is mostly extraneous when you have wire backed media.

Still need a center tube, unless the wire backing was very thick wire and very ridged, which it typically isn't because it's there to mainly keep the pleats from folding over from the oil flow forces. If the center tube was removed, the whole wire backed media assembly would be pushed inward and become too deformed.

Yup. And of course it also provides the integrity for the cartridge itself so it can seal against the baseplate under pressure and the bypass valve at the bottom, if it's a separate unit.

Fram titanium does still have the metal backing. Purchased today. Glad it goes.
