Introduction

Air Filters is Designed to Protect the Engine from direct contamination by external pollutants.

  1. An engine's air intake is between 200 and 500m3 of air per hour, depending on its cubic capacity.
    The absorbed air is full of impurities depending on the climate, ground surface, level of atmospheric pollution, etc.
  2. In addition to these impurities there is dust, which if mixed into the engine oil, eventually becomes an abrasive paste, which severely damages the engine.
  3. The main purpose of the air filter is to remove harmful dirt particles from the air intake by introducing a filter media between the air intake and the entry into the cylinder(s) in petrol engines prior to the carburetor.
