BMC Air Filters, designed and manufactured in Italy, have announced a new range of high performance air filters for Australian 4WD vehicle applications.
The new range includes OE replacement air filters for a wide variety of 4WD vehicles, including Toyota Hilux and Landcruiser, Nissan Patrol and Navara, Ford Ranger and Courier, Mazda B2500, Mitsubishi Pajero, and the Holden Colorado. Many models have already arrived in Australia, with others due in the next few months.
The BMC air filter is composed of an epoxy coated alloy mesh to ensure protection from petrol fumes and oxidization due to air humidity, covered by a special multilayer cotton filtration material which guarantees containment of all impurities from as small as 7 microns, where paper filters generally only offer filtration of particles of 10 microns.
BMC air filters are also designed and produced to ensure a higher air flow than OE filters, producing less than half the pressure drop when compared to paper filters. BMC air filters allow more air into the engine, while providing better protection.
As cotton is a natural material which can be reused several times the filter can be washed with a special detergent then re-oiled, saving the cost of changing the air filter each time the vehicle is serviced. The filter can even be cleaned and regenerated in the outback, with the handy aerosol service kit. BMC air filters have a general lifespan equal to that of the vehicle.
BMC Air Filters are the most successful air filter in many racing categories including Formula1 champions 9 times, 11 Le Mans 24 Hours titles, 8 Australian V8 Supercars Championships, and eight Bathurst 1000 victories. BMC Air Filters were originally developed in association with the Ferrari F1 Team, and many of the leading Australian V8 Supercar teams run BMC Air Filters as they deliver the highest quality, performance and reliability.
