The new Europiclon® 50 from MANN+HUMMEL extends the range of the successful Europiclon® line to engines and equipment with a powerrating up to 27 HP (20 kW). Along with the known advantages of the Europiclon® line which include reliability, long service life and its robust, corrosion-free housing, the new Europiclon® 50 has a number of additional features which offer important advantages for the designer and user.
The new filter elements for the Europiclon® 50 offer high performance and are costeffective. The radial seal used for the main element in connection with the special pleat stabilization enables a high separation efficiency of more than 99.95% and a high dust capacity. A plastic center tube in the housing provides good support for the element without negatively influencing the withdrawal distance.
A secondary element protects the engine during a filter service or if the main element is damaged. It is an important component for perfect engine protection, which ensures the maximum service life of your machine.
The filter surface area is approx. 45% larger than comparable products. This leads to minimal pressure drop with an increase in the service life of the filter.
The housing of the Europiclon® is made of impact resistant polypropylene and is suitable for continuous use in the temperature range -40 °F to +176 °F (-40 °C to +80 °C) or for short periods up to +212 °F (+100 °C). The external polygon design of the housing is recognizable. The Europiclon® bracket, designed especially for this structure, can be turned in increments of 22.5° opposite to the housing. The housing can be turned in the axial direction to two
different locking positions. This offers the designer up to 32 different fitting possibilities for the air cleaner.
Advantages at a glance:
n rotatable clean air outlet with integrated connection for service indicator or switch
n clean air outlet available with straight pipe connection or with a 90° elbow
n new space-saving turn-lock fastener and easy filter element change without tools
n especially low pressure drop also in operation with fitted secondary element
n highly cost-effective
