Claremont, CA — Vortox Air Technology, Inc., an American manufacturer of innovative solutions to many industries' air filtration needs, reminds consumers that its oil bath air cleaners make excellent precleaners when used in conjunction with another air cleaner.
With an oil bath air cleaner as a first line of defense, followed by a second air cleaner—usually a dry air cleaner—engines are better protected from dirt and contaminants that can cause breakage, downtime, and other problems. Using the oil bath as a precleaner also extends the life of the primary air cleaner because so much of the dirt is caught before reaching it.
This method, which doesn't void existing warranties, results in less downtime for maintenance since the paper filters don't have to be changed as often and fewer paper filters need to be purchased.
Oil bath air cleaners function so well as precleaners because they are highly efficient and are able to process large amounts of dirt much better than dry air cleaners. And since the only necessary servicing is a generic oil change, they require much less maintenance.
Sizes from 75–1500 CFM are available. All Vortox oil bath air cleaners attain 90% efficiency at only 20% CFM capacity, and they come in a variety of styles for all applications.
Oil bath air cleaners feature self-washing filter elements, large dust-holding capacity, vertical mounting capability, carbon steel construction, and a large variety of sizes. Dry air cleaners protect engines using advanced filter paper technology to provide up to 99.99% efficiency and are available in single-stage or multistage configurations for the harshest environments.
