Engine Intake Filters for Locomotive Applications
Contaminants such as dust and fumes can affect the performance of a locomotive or marine diesel engine. Improperly filtered intake air leads to premature wear on the engine, costly repairs, and unplanned downtime.
AAF Flanders was the first to create an air filter specifically for the engine market. For over 45 years, our line of bag filters, pad filters, and housings have:
- Provided optimal protection of engines against contaminants in intake air.
- Improved the performance of diesel engines in the locomotive industries.
The intake air that a locomotive engine “breathes” needs to be as clean as possible to maximize engine performance, decrease fuel consumption, and protect engine components. Filter intake air properly to prevent premature engine wear and costly downtime, lowering operating costs.
The original engine air intake filter, the AmerKleen M80 filter pad still provides unsurpassed protection for diesel engines. These engines rely on consistently clean intake air for optimal performance, improved fuel efficiency, and reduced risk of damage to their components.
