Air filters: What is the purpose of a safety filter?

The Filter Guys

What is the purpose of a safety filter? Safety filter, secondary filter, inner filter; there are many names, we prefer to call it a safety filter.

A safety filter backs up the primary filter, and protects the clean air ducting while the primary is out of the housing during service. The engine should never be run with only a safety filter in place.

The safety filter is NOT a spare filter! Its purpose is to protect the engine if something goes wrong with the primary (main) filter. Until then, all it does is take up space and add a little bit of restriction.

What can go wrong with the primary filter?

It may have hidden damage from shipping that you missed when you inspected it before installation; damage from cleaning (if you carry out such an unrecommended procedure); maybe even a manufacturing glitch; mis-installation by the mechanic (but this never happens, right?); a ‘will-fit’ that doesn’t quite fit; or it’s the wrong part altogether and doesn’t fit at all into the housing (but mechanics would never try this, would they?)

All of these things happen more often than any of us like to think. We determined many years ago that a really good way to provide additional protection for large engines operating in heavy dust conditions was to always offer and for you to always use a safety filter.

There are some characteristics about the safety filter which you should be aware of, so you understand what it does and doesn’t do for your engine:

  • is smaller than the main filter, with less media.
  • is more open and less efficient for lower restriction.
  • has less contaminant-holding capacity so that it will plug rapidly if any engine-damaging dust particles get past a damaged primary filter.

A safety filter offers protection against mistakes when fitting and reduces the need to open the clean air side of the system by 66% (they usually only need changing once every three main filter changes) compared to systems without a safety filter. They are an excellent insurance against contaminants entering your engine and upon a critical failure of the main element can save your engine from serious damage.

Draper Tools are available through us.

The Filter Guys

People often are unaware of the additional goods and services that we can offer. As a filtration company people don’t realise we offer extra services such as Draper Tools.

So with the weather on the up maybe it’s time to look at those garden improvements that you’ve been dreaming about all winter and spring. Shovels, rakes, lawn edgers, hoes, leaf collectors and everything else you may need to get your green fingers working are available through us.

Draper weed matting is an affordable and simple way to keep away unwanted growth so that the plants you want to grow can thrive.

Draper loppers and hand trimmers are a must to help you maintain those out of control overgrown bushes, so go on give your bush a trim this summer.

And for later in the year you’ll need a Draper leaf blower to help you clear away the autumn blues.

And when you’ve finished working hard you’ll need to put your feet up with a burger and a beer; but at the end of the summer don’t forget to get a Draper barbecue cover to keep things in tip top condition so you can do it all again next year.

Mann & Hummel Centrifuges/Oil Filters

The Filter Guys

MANN+HUMMEL centrifuges clean oil by generating centrifugal force 2,000 times greater than gravity. It is this force that separates solid contaminant from the oil. This technology has been proven to remove contaminant down to a sub-micron size, which is advantageous to both engine producers and users.

The Benefits:

• Cleaner oil

• Extension of oil life

• Lengthens service intervals

• Reduces engine wear

• Enhances long-term preventative maintenance

• Reduces maintenance costs

• Cuts waste disposal costs

• Reduces application down time

• Maximises in-service time for vehicle/engines/machine

MANN+HUMMEL centrifugal oil cleaners are internationally recognised in providing superior bypass filtration for the removal of contaminant from the lubricating oil of Diesel engines. The technology can also be successfully used for gearboxes, hydraulics and other industrial fluids.

MANN+HUMMEL provide its centrifuge technology to the following market sectors:

• Trucks

• Buses

• Marine

• Power Generation

• Mining Machinery

• Locomotives

• Construction

• Agriculture

• Military

• Industrial Fluids

• Reduces total cost of ownership

• Helps ensure clean combustion and fuel efficiency

• Supports engine technology for the reduction of exhaust emissions (e.g. exhaust gas recirculation)

• Fast return on investment

Full flow filters are designed to process all the oil used to lubricate the moving parts of the engine. However, the need to maintain a high flow and limit pressure drop across the filtration media restricts the ability to filter out sub-micron particles. This job is taken over by the centrifugal oil cleaner in the bypass. The MANN+HUMMEL centrifugal oil cleaner processes approximately 10 % of the oil flow provided by the engine pump before returning it directly to the engine sump. The removal of particles by centrifugal force is based on their relative density and therefore there is no restriction on contaminant size.
