Mahle Cabin filter
MAHLE cabin filters reliably supply the driver and passengers with clean air. They reduce dust on the dashboard and in the cabin, and avoid dangerous fogging of the windows. They also reduce the load on the blower and protect the HVAC system from contamination. Irreparable damage can occur to the air conditioning or heating system. The replacement intervals recommended by vehicle manufacturers should therefore always be followed. Rule of thumb: every 15,000 to 20,000 km. A regular sales driver for every repair shop.
Mahle Fuel filter
Fuel filters in original equipment quality from MAHLE pay off in every way: in the short term with fair margins, and in the long term with satisfied customers. These filters are at work in passenger cars, buses, commercial vehicles, tug boats, excavators, and wheeled loaders. Because modern injection engines required extremely clean and homogenous fuels—delivered with as little pulsation as possible. But water and small foreign objects get into the fuel during production and transport. This can cause the engine to misfire and come to a stop. Since it is extremely critical that the fuel filter functions perfectly, all vehicle and engine manufacturers recommend regular replacement at prescribed intervals.
Mahle Air filter
Many major automobile and engine manufacturers rely on the expertise of MAHLE for air filters—for good reason: engine performance, torque, low consumption, and minimal emissions require well-filtered air. And our cellulose (paper) filters, plastic non-wovens, or a combination of both can trap just about everything. They capture up to 99.98% of toxic dust, soot, and tyre particles. The finest filters trap nearly all particles larger than 3 µm. This means that MAHLE air filters prevent premature wear of valves, cylinder surfaces, piston rings, bearings, and other engine components. But be careful: in order for the filters to work perfectly, they must be replaced at the intervals prescribed by the automobile manufacturer.
In order to protect the filters from moisture, the intake port is designed to keep water away from the filter element as much as possible. If moisture does reach the filter anyway, we have added another layer of protection. Our filter papers are impregnated with a special synthetic resin that increases the resistance of the filter insert to water and chemicals. Glue beads on the backs of the folds help the filter elements retain their shape.
Mahle Oil filter
MAHLE has long been manufacturing high-quality oil filters for many large automobile and engine manufacturers—and of course the same machines produce identical filters for the aftermarket. This high level of quality has clear advantages: it ensures reliable function, good engine protection, and satisfied customers. The diversity of types is constantly increasing, however, as new engine architectures allow less and less space in the engine bay. Areas of application range from petrol and diesel engines for passenger cars and commercial vehicles to motorcycles and small engines. Because optimal lubrication of the bearings is extremely critical in all of these engines, all vehicle manufacturers require that oil filters be changed regularly.
