Trucking News Online Develops Reusable Truck Pre-filter

freedomfilter has developed a new reusable pre-filter for the trucking and agricultural industries. These filters are constructed of a water-repellant material designed to prevent rain, snow and debris from entering a truck engine.

The pre-filters are designed to keep out larger particles of debris such as rubber, dirt and sand from getting into and clogging the pleats of air filter elements. They are constructed of a proprietary polyester mesh with uniform micron openings and treated with a hydrophobic water repellant process.

Premature clogging of an air filter will result in loss of horsepower and an increase in service intervals. These products are designed to protect your engine and your performance air filter without sacrificing airflow or horsepower. This pre-filter catches particles as small as .005 inches, extending your filter’s life.

Even in harsh conditions — including heavy moisture — a pre-filter will enhance your filter’s ability to continue flow the necessary air required for maximum performance while reducing the possibility of water ingestion into the engine. Proper use of a pre-filter will save money on filter cleanings, replacements, and extend engine life. Horsepower, torque, and fuel economy, are maintained better throughout the life of the air filter.

This pre-filter is designed to fit over the existing under-the-hood filter as well as the cabin filter. Pre-filters can be used over and over again because they are easily cleaned with soap and water.
