Now even more recycled fibers in air filters from MANN-FILTER
Ludwigsburg, February 4, 2021 – Working with resources sustainably goes without saying for leading global filtration expert MANN+HUMMEL. For example, 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. This meant we could triple the proportion of recycled fibers and make an important contribution to the conservation of resources," Jens Weine, Product Range Manager Air and Cabin Air Filters at MANN-FILTER.
More air filters will now follow in the footsteps of the C 24 005. The green color of their recycled fibers makes these air filters look different to the others. They meet the replacement intervals prescribed by the vehicle manufacturer even under dusty conditions, and are characterized by their flame-retardant properties. Also the new MANN-FILTER air filters are supplied in OEM quality.
Thanks to the multilayer MICROGRADE A-S medium, the separation efficiency of the C 24 005 air filter is 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.
Filters from MANN+HUMMEL are in continuous development. As well as meeting technical specifications, one of the most important factors for MANN+HUMMEL is sustainability.
