MANN-FILTER AIR FILTERS
Now with even more recycled fibers
Working with resources sustainably reportedly goes without saying for global filtration expert, MANN+HUMMEL.
For example, it says one contribution to sustainability is the improved MANN-FILTER air filter C 24 005, with its renewed filter medium made from recycled synthetic fibers.
“One square meter of filter medium now contains plastic from up to six 1.5-liter PET bottles,” MANN-FILTER Product Range Manager Air and Cabin Air Filters, Jens Weine, said.
“This meant we could triple the proportion of recycled fibers and make an important contribution to the conservation of resources.”
More air filters will now follow in the footsteps of the C 24 005.
The green colour of their recycled fibers makes these air filters look different to the others but they meet the replacement intervals prescribed by the vehicle manufacturer even under dusty conditions, and are characterised by their flame-retardant properties.
Thanks to the multilayer Micrograde A-S medium, the separation efficiency of the C 24 005 air filter is reportedly up to 99.5 percent when tested with ISO-certified test dust.
With its high dirt holding capacity throughout the entire service interval, the air filter requires only 30 percent of the filter medium area
of traditional air filters based on cellulose media.
The fibers of the renewed medium are certified according to Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, meaning they are tested for pollutants and declared non-harmful.
MANN+HUMMEL says its filters are in continuous development; stating that alongside meeting technical specifications, one of the most important factors for its team is sustainability.
