Vehicle Air Intake Systems
|Wear in vehicle diesel engines is caused by contamination entering the air and lubrication systems. Studies indicate that the most damaging particles are in the size range of 1 to 10 micron, ref 1 and 2.
Fine filtration increases system reliability and reduces the number of component failures due to contamination.
Problems Caused by ContaminationSand and dust contamination can cause:
Benefits of Fine FiltrationFine filtration prevents harmful contaminants from entering the air intake system, and this will:
- Protect the engine by removing harmful solid and liquid contamination
- Increase engine MTBUR for erosion, reduce component wear
- Reduce unscheduled engine removals
- Increase vehicle availability
- Reduce the cost of component repairs
- Reduce the logistics burden
Typical Filter LocationsVehicle air intakes require a filtration system to protect the diesel engine from damaging particulate contamination. This type of system is installed upstream of the engine air intake, and is either engine-mounted or hull-mounted
The filter assemblies are connected to the engine via a duct
The engine air filtration components (PUREair pre-cleaner and barrier filter) are in part of the engine.
Filter SolutionsPall's engine air filtration system consists of a PUREair pre-cleaner combined with a barrier filter downstream.
PUREair is a "fit and forget" system that is virtually maintenance-free. It has no moving parts and operates at a constant low differential pressure
The barrier filter media exhibits particle removal efficiencies of >99.999% removal (ISO Fine Test Dust)
