Posted: December 3rd, 2014

Did you know…

Vortox Air Technology Oil Bath Air Cleaners make the perfect Precleaner for mining, industrial, and excavation applications.

What is a Precleaner?

A Precleaner is usually attached to an air cleaner’s inlet tube and is used to filter out large dirt and debris. Precleaners are commonly used in environments that produce heavy amounts of dirt, dust, and other contaminants. They are an added protection for the engine, and also reduce the amount of filter element change-outs in the air cleaner by collecting the majority of the dirt.

Why an Oil Bath?

  • -They can attain a 98% efficiency
  • -They are lined with the Vortox filter element, which is self-washing and sustains the life of the product
  • -They have a large dust holding capacity, which means fewer filter change outs, and less down time for machinery
  • -When used as a precleaner they will protect air cleaners and engines better than a paper filter air cleaner alone
  • -Air cleaners using oil wash technology have a 90% efficiency when using only 20% of cfm capabilities
