The function and advantage of air filter

First of all, the function of the air filter is to filter the dust, carbon particles

some water vapor and other debris in the air to ensure

that clean air enters the cylinder
Therefore the air conditioning filter that exceeds the service life will

be completely blocked by pollutants, so the engine intake is

too little and the jitter acceleration is weak
so the air filter must be replaced regularly

if the safety and comfort of car driving will be greatly reduced.

Principle of air filter element

Therefore, the filtration principle of the air filter will separate

the liquid water and liquid oil droplets in the compressed air

and filter the dust and solid impurities in the air

but can not remove the gaseous water and oil
Therefore, the removal technologies of particulate matter in the

air mainly include mechanical filtration, adsorption, electrostatic dust removal

anion and plasma method and electrostatic electret filtration.
Because mechanical filtration mainly captures particles through

the following three ways direct interception, inertial collision,

Brown diffusion mechanism, which has a good collection effect

on fine particles but large wind resistance, in order to obtain high purification efficiency

the filter element needs to be dense and replaced regularly;
However, adsorption uses the large surface area and porous structure of

the material to capture particle pollutants, which is easy to block

and the removal effect of gas pollutants is more significant

The air filter is located on the right side of the engine compartment

above the right front wheel, in a black square plastic box with

a thick soft rubber hose attached to the arm
Here is the relevant information

Air filter element is a kind of filter, also called air filter cartridge

air filter, style, etc. It is mainly used for air filtration in engineering locomotives

automobiles, agricultural locomotives, laboratories,

aseptic operation rooms and various precision operation rooms.
the engine in the working process to suck in a lot of air, if the air is not filtered clear

the suspended dust in the air is sucked into the cylinder

it will accelerate the piston group and cylinder wear.

Larger particles entering between the piston and the cylinder

will cause a serious “cylinder pulling” phenomenon,

which is particularly serious in a dry and sandy working environment.

The air filter is installed in the front of the carburetor or the intake pipe

to filter the dust and sand in the air to ensure that sufficient and clean

air is entered into the cylinder.According to the filtration principle

the air filter can be divided into filter type, centrifugal type

oil bath type and compound type. The air filters commonly used in

the engine are mainly inertia oil bath air filters, paper dry air filters

polyurethane filter air filters and so on
