MANN+HUMMEL: reliable and economic


MANN+HUMMEL strengthens its railway business and at the Innotrans trade fair in Berlin for the first time will present filter solutions for diesel locomotives and their aggregates. The range of filters covers all the filtration requirements of diesel engines, transmission and brake compressors, including the driver's cabin.

Ludwigsburg, 18th September, 2012 – All filtration solutions from a single source – MANN+HUMMEL strengthens its railway business and will present solutions at the 2012 Innotrans trade fair. The international leading filtration specialist offers a comprehensive range of economic filtration solutions for diesel locomotives and their aggregates such as the diesel engine, brake compressor, transmission and driver's cabin. The comprehensive range of filters supports reliable operation of diesel locomotives. It consists of air cleaners, cyclone pre-separators, fuel filters, main flow oil filters, by-pass centrifuges, air/oil separators, cabin filters and crankcase ventilation solutions.

High quality and reliability
The high separation efficiency of MANN+HUMMEL filters and their reliable function considerably reduce wear on aggregates.

The pre-separators equipped with cyclone cells are specially suitable for applications with extremely high dust loads and deliver a separation efficiency of up to 99.5%. This lengthens the service interval of the intake air cleaner by up to 1300% and increases the availability of the locomotives.

MANN+HUMMEL oil filters offer a high dirt holding capacity and filter fineness and ensure the required process reliability. Lubrication oil centrifuges separate contaminants in the size range smaller than a micrometre such as soot and metal abrasion in the lubrication oil of diesel engines. Depending on the application and operating conditions, centrifuges can double the service life of the oil and oil filter in comparison to systems without a centrifuge.

The main and preliminary fuel filters separate water and particles from the fuel and thereby protect the sensitive injection nozzles of the engine against wear.

Separators in the area of crankcase ventilation protect the turbocharger and components fitted downstream.

Diesel locomotives are subject to heavy loads, have to provide maximum performance, and be available at all times. The condition for this is high quality for each individual component. These components may include up to 14 filters. MANN+HUMMEL products meet the high quality standards of original equipment manufacturers. The products stand for process reliability, reduce downtimes and increase economy. The worldwide network of the filtration specialist ensures that the right filter is quickly available on demand.
