A typical air filter in an internal combustion engine removes dust, soot, carbon, abrasives, moisture and other contaminants from the air before it enters the engine induction system. If contamination gets inside the induction system, even the tiniest microscopic dust particles can damage fuel injectors, cylinder walls, pistons and rings and lead to expensive repairs in a very short time. A quality air filter can remove particles with a size of 3 microns at an efficiency of 99.9%.
Modern injection systems can be damaged easily by contaminants such as tank residues, rust and dust particles or other substances. Fuel filters protect the components of the injection. Fuel filters are distinguished according to gasoline, diesel and gas filters. A quality fuel filter is the primary line of defense against damaging contaminants getting into your engine. Clean fuel, free from contaminants, is critical for the smooth and efficient operation of your vehicle.
The oil filter removes impurities like metal debris, soot, dust and other contaminants from the circulating oil so that only the clean lubricating oil reaches the bearing and other lubrication points of the engine. The modern oil filter is capable of withstanding high-temperatures and is designed for long-term mechanical stability. A properly serviced oil filter provides continuous cleaning of the oil and also helps to cool the oil and keep it at its optimum operating temperature.
Cabin filters, also known as Pollen filters are now widely used by almost all vehicle manufacturers as standard equipment, and are important for passengers like allergy sufferers, asthmatics and children. The cabin filter cleans the interior air of pollen, dust, soot and exhaust fumes and helps prevent airborne health risks to occupants.They also protect the climate system against contamination, help reduce inside window fogging and thus ensure a clear view.
