The objective of an engine air intake system is to eliminate solid particles from reaching the engine while still allowing sufficient air for efficient combustion of the fuel. A naturally aspirated (NA) engine can use over 15,000 gallons of clean air for every gallon of fuel burned. A turbocharged engine needs 20-25% more than a naturally aspirated engine and a turbo-charged after (or inner) cooled engine uses twice that of the NA engine. Contaminated air will reduce combustion efficiency and in turn will increase lube oil contamination resulting in increased wear to valves, rings, pistons, cylinder walls and crankshaft bearings. Inefficient combustion of the fuel will also increase the level of emissions released and increase fuel consumed. Engine operating costs will increase and engine life will decrease in direct proportion to the amount of dirt allowed to get past the air filtration system.

A teaspoon of dirt is enough to cause engine wear…
a handful can destroy the engine!
Standard Enginaire designs incorporate a primary element, an optional safety element, and an integral dust ejection device.
(1). Air is drawn into the air cleaner through the inlet tube by the vacuum created by the engine. The incoming air is then caused to travel in a circular path by either a tangential inlet or by angled fins on the primary element. Up to 50% of the incoming contaminant is forced to the outer wall of the housing and expelled through the dust ejector
(2). (The dust ejector opens and closes with the pulse of the engine) The incoming air is then filtered as it passes through the pleated paper element (s)
(3). Clean air then exits through the outlet tube
(4). to the ducting system leading to the intake manifold or turbo charger.
Engine operating costs will increase and engine life will decrease in direct proportion to the amount of dirt allowed to get past the air filtration system.
