A modern 16-liter diesel engine with electronic injection and intercooler provides over 40.000 liters of air per minute. In rough environments with a lot of dust, there are strict requirements on air filters performance. 250 grams of dirt in the form of solid contaminants will be enough to wear out a diesel engine. The air filter system on a machine is initially dimensioned according to normal operating conditions. If there is a need for more frequent maintenance, we recommend making changes to reduce engine wear.

We have many years of experience in rebuilding and adapting air filter systems. We can help you with optimal solutions. If you clean the air filter by blowing compressed air through the filter, be aware that this method will destroy the filters. A better option is to use an indicator that shows when the filter is dense and needs to be changed.

We supply exchangeable filter housings, pre-cleaners, filter elements, indicators and related items like hoses and adapters for mobile applications.

Filter elements for air filter housings

RMF desiccant breathers 

Breathing filters on hydraulic tanks ensure clean and dry airflow. Without breathing filters, the oil will deteriorate by condensation. The tank will oxidize, and on other components of the system will be damaged.  The RMF breathing filters consists of a spin-on filter element (3 micron fiberglass) and filter housing with Silicagel (environmentally friendly moisture absorbing pellets). We also offer a wide range of carbon filters, a robust design that can withstand strong vibrations and filter in SS316L.
