Efficient Air Filters for Marine Engines

PMAX Filters, a Sydney (Australia) based manufacturer of filters for marine engines, has recently announced availability of a new very efficient marine air filter for slow and medium speed diesel engines. According to the company, the new air filters ensure that engines run more efficiently, reducing engine operating costs and increasing reliability. The PMAX air filter’s continuously pleated design presents over 700 percent more surface area to inlet air than conventional coarse gauze filters.

Conventional coarse gauze filters allow virtually unfiltered air to enter the engine, causing air passages to foul with dust, oil and salt buildup. Unfiltered engines suffer from high exhaust temperatures and increased fuel consumption. This is because of reduced airflow caused by dirt build up in turbochargers and air coolers. PMAX filters virtually eliminate the entry of airborne contaminants into the engine. The filters not only improve engine efficiency but also reduce fuel consumption, maintenance requirements and cylinder component wear. Designed to provide many thousands of hours service, PMAX filters are easily cleaned by washing with mild detergent and water.

According to the company there are over 70 Australian & New Zealand vessels using PMAX air filters.
