“We are the pioneer among the manufacturers who developed this type of technology in the domestic and regional market, we are keen to offer our new products for the market,” said Margner.
The Blue.maxx concept combining pre-filters and main filters will have longterm advantages: significant improvements in particle filtration, water separation, and differential performance along with a reduction in the required installation space. Tailored to the respective situation, the filter stages can be defined for any application.
He further elaborates, “The requirements for fuels, not only in modern common rail drives but also commercial vehicles, are constantly increasing. At Hengst, our products including the Blue Maxx consistently relies on multi-stage systems consisting of a pre-filter and main-filter to ensure efficient fuel filtration. For this new modular system, each filter stage is designed in a way that it enables true precision work and individually adjusted to the application and their respective boundary conditions. During the prefilter stage and multi stage of fuel filtration, the filtration efficiency is up to 96 percent to above 99 percent, while the water is up to 99 percent and above. By optimally calibrating the media stages, it maximises the usage of filtration system in delivering optimal performance for our customers.”
