Match the Engine Intake System to the Application and Environment 700533
Engine air intake systems for construction, agricultural, and over-highway vehicles must remove a wide variety of contaminants. Good selection of components for the intake system depends on matching performance characteristics of the air cleaner and accessories to the expected types and concentrations of contaminants. Actual field dust concentrations, and the relationship between field and laboratory service life, are plotted for two-stage dry air cleaners in off-highway applications. These data along with a summary of the major factors to consider in selection and layout of components will aid in designing engine air intake systems.
